Had heard good things about De Prael and was not disappointed. Had one of their good brewed-on-premises beers and a really nice spinach salad. The bar was bigger than I anticipated and would be suitable for groups. Staff were helpful and friendly. Prices very reasonable

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
