Once you finish your red-light stroll, head to Precinct 5, the Patta crew’s latest store, which is located in an old police station. Consider it the Reed Space of Amsterdam: clean streetwear, good people. (And don’t forget the O.G. Patta store for Nike Tier 0 goodies.) Also recommended is 290SQM, a well-curated shop located in a small alley by Waterlooplein. Visit Foam Museum for fresh photography. For nightlife, Minibar has a novel concept: You get a key to your own self-serve minibar, and pay upon leaving for what you consume. Oh, a coffee shop? De Rokerij is a favorite of artists about town.
CENTRUM Is Touristy.
