The atmosphere of The Blue Bird was kind of laid back an chatty, its not really that pretentious, and was a step out of reality, into a more jungley enviroment, fun, an has a nice layout.
Menu: 9
The Menu was Big and Well priced.

The service was welcoming an good, they gave me a free drink, an some towels with a glass of water to cool off from the hot weather.

The atmosphere is not so cool because the accomodation looks awful and the music is not very chilly.
Menu: 9
The menu is very big and the have some really exotic strains, but the drinks and the space cakes are also very good.
Summary
If you want to taste some cool strains you should probably go there.

Basically styled, nothing too special but a nice relaxed vibe. Good amount of seating, both downstairs and upstairs near the bar and budtenders booth. Seems like a fairly mixed crowd of locals and tourists.
Menu: 6
A pretty good selection of strains. Not the best quality but fair quality for fair prices. Mostly pre-weighed bags all at set prices. Good variety of hash aswell.
Summary
A mixed crowd of tourists and locals. Not the highest quality but fair for the price. And theres a good amount of space to chill out in. Cool and relaxed.
Service: 7
I didn\'t stay for long, and it did take a minute to find the menu/budtender. However once I did they seemed happy to help me pick out the strain I wanted. They made sure to ask if I wanted a drink or any rolling papers - a good service.

Two floors, I never bother with the ground floor, but upstairs is cozy, great techno/dance music which makes you wanna bounce (except, after smoking their wares, this is not possible!). Great comfy sofa, if you can get a seat...
Menu: 8
Good selection of hash and weed, and the dealer is freindly and will explain/recommend. Go with his recommendations - he knows his shit!

My favourite - I come here time and time again.

Very colorful from the inside, but with a special room for smoking. In there it's very windy and it's not really easy to roll a joint. At the entrance of the smoking roon is always a guy, looking at you. I don't really liked that.
Menu: 7
Lot's of different weed and hash, the price is regular but the quality is great.

Pinball and a very large couch was what I remember. Didn't stay too long though.
Menu: 8
Plenty of choices. I had one of the best sativas in the 'Dam; Kali Mist. Knocked me loopy, what a ride. Also had some Bon Bons which did me quite well thanks.
Summary
Haven't been since 2000, but the weed seemed pretty quality.

Service: 7
I would say a 7 for service! as i nearly got my b***s chewed off by a grumpy dreadlocked woman for asking if i could by a lighter,I knew it was late & i was like the 10.000 customer for the day but you should treat you last customer as well as your 1st.

Big dissapointment. I just don't like this place. Trying too hard to bee cool. Narrow and not advisable for claustrophobics. The interior decorating is a mess. Annoying music.
Menu: 7
Had the Sensi Star which was okey. Menu looked good, but I'm not too sure if they all live up to their expectations there.
Summary
Don't go here to relax. Populated by school kids and lost souls. I would send the people which anoy me to that place any time.
Service: 2
Fucked up atmosphere while selling. Service is quick and if you don't ask for any explanation you won't get any from the salesperson.

BIG sofa, large enough for eight to sit on easy, very comfy, but low ceilings, dark lighting and a general air of too-cool-for-school from the patrons, got fairly para after a while
Menu: 8
Kicking myself that I didn't buy anything from here 'cos apparently the menu's wicked, will investigate next time but for now I'll take it on trust and rate 'em high
Summary
This is probably just one of those things, I don't like coffeeshops to be too dark and close, the music was this prerecorded mixtape of aggro hiphop with some guy oging "word up bluebird" and all that bollox would only go again to buy, not to smoke
Service: 7
Only got drinks,girl at the bar was nice, no big queues or owt like that

It's a cool shop. There is a great lether bench and a table with a huge waterpipe in it. There are also seats with view on the street which are really cool. There is also a smaller place on street level with a wall with mirrors on it.
Menu: 9
There is a huge amount of choice, they got the book of weed and the book of hash!!! My favorite is the Star Warz weed, me and my friends once smoked a lot Star Warz weed and watched all the Star Wars movies in one night.
Summary
Sometimes they play chill DrumNbass but sometimes they play hardrock which is really annoying when you're stoned. A minor point for the weed menu is that you can't buy weed under 6 euro.
Service: 8
The guy with long hair is really nice, and he is really helpfull. The bouncer is also very kind, cause he talkes a lot to people which he doesn't even know.

Catch the sofa for the best comfort, the rest of seating is mostly stools, the colours are good, the atmosphere is OK if you're in a group
Menu: 9
A book for hash and a book for marijuana, the books include samples so it is very helpful, would have liked to have seen more types of ice-o-later
Summary
Cool place to chill on the sofa, if you are particular on customer service then its best avoided, worth spending an hour or two in this place, I particularly liked the music and oh yeah, this place has cornflakes on the menu
Service: 5
Nothing to shout about, many of the workers seem quiet moody

it's a real book! the variety was alsmost unbelieveable :) i chose thai gold that wasn't best but it was my last money so i needed a cheap weed. a friend of me had a very good weed called " sensi warz"

great atmosphere, I gotta say BlueBird is my favorite stop every visit to the Dam. Couches, tight but sweet layout with lotsa balconies and windows to sit nearby, about 3 different sections to sit in. I like the downstairs tables where you walk in at.
Menu: 10
AWESOME book of pot and hash, some of the best strains available. All of their top strains are incredible, also their drinks kick ass. Spacecake thats famous for knocking you on your ass and giggling for 2 hours straight, careful when eating it.
Summary
Love the bluebird, usually just go in and grab what I need for the hotel, although at 9 AM its a great way to start your day. Stick to evenings for their hash or you'll need a nap mid-afternoon no doubt :D Once I met this hot-ass italian squatter chick there on a Sunday morning, *sigh* God i loved her
Service: 5
Well the hippie pot dealer is much cooler than the snooty staff. SOme younger chicks that work the espresso machine are cool but watch out for the bitchy old Brit woman that opens up in the morning, sometimes I wish miserable people WOULDNT WORK in retail

Opens at 9am, we always find a seat, originators of the whipped cream & choco syrup hot coco and great smoke photos on the wall. Last week it was decorated with patrons art on the back of their drink coasters!
Menu: 10
The best international selection. Lots of worldly unusuals like Swazi, Vietnam and Durban Poison grass. The undisputed black hash champs of Amsterdam! Once you see those weed & hash atlas' you'll never be the same!
Summary
5 trips to Amsterdam from the US and maybe a dozen to the Blue Bird! Only picked up 'kabul' hash and 'high rise haze' last week, but it will always be one of our favorite shops! I learned Afghani geography from their hash selections!

weed and hash menus come in large book binders with actual samples. only coffeshop i've visited that does this. wide selection on both and their dark hash is among the best you will find anywhere.
