For anybody looking for a warm, friendly and relaxed place to spend a lazy afternoon, The Dolphin is worth the effort. Downstairs under-water décor seating area with comfortable couches and free wi-fi internet access says it all!
Situated just off Leidseplein and close to many of the happening areas, The Dolphin is easily accessible by feet or tramway car.
The Dolphin is somewhat tacky designed in an oceanic theme. Dolphins are airbrushed on the walls and hanging from the roof and the bar is lit up by goldfish lamps. Seating upstairs is provided by half a dozen cafe tables, and as many comfy bar chairs; fairly typical coffee-shop style. Downstairs offer a comfortable seating area with wall-side benches and large, cozy couches. The room is painted from floor to ceiling as a part of the ocean from under water perspective.
Music is varying, but always relaxed and never too loud. Small TV-sets show sports or other entertainment. Wireless internet access on both floors makes The Dolphin one of the few coffee-shops in town prepared for the laptop-equipped visitor.
The bar offers a good selection of high-class weed and hash. House specialty Dolphin X is well worth a try, and space cakes and muffins are fresh and tastefully baked. Water bongs and vaporizers can be rented. License does not allow alcoholic beverages to be sold.
