Coffeeshop The Rookies was founded in 1992 Amsterdam by the youngest Bar-Coffeeshop owners that time, that’s one off the reasons why we called it The Rookies.

We like to see The Rookies as a international coffeeshop where locals love to hang out too.

The Rookies has a Bar-Pub kind of interior because we also sold alcohol from day one, From 1992 until 2007, after that time the government did not allow selling alcohol and the green flowers.

We had to choose, so we choose to continue as a coffeeshop. Lucky for you!

Yes its true, we had a Hotel as wel for 14 years we sold that in 2012 because we wanted to go back in what we do best, and that’s running a coffeeshop!
And focus on our hardcore business.

We like to invite you to come to The Rookies coffeeshop and taste the atmosphere and products.
