I have always liked cafe De Duivel. Unfortunately one night a friend and I were in De Duivel and did things like: getting way too drunk, falling off the barstools, and coming back after closing time to kiss the bartender… Due to these events we had to make the painful decision that we weren’t allowed to go back here for at least a couple of months. Luckily months have passed and we feel it’s safe for us to go back again. Just so you know: nowadays we are much more well behaved.
Cafe de Duivel is unique because of the music, a different DJ every night of the week, and an open-minded atmosphere. All different kinds of people meet up here mainly because they all like hip-hop music. I like to come here to hear great music and dance to songs that I haven’t heard in years. Also there are always interesting things and people to see. And usually having one or two drinks results in having lots of drinks and staying till closing time.
Cafe De Duivel has existed for more than ten years now and is a real hip-hop bar. It has been closed down a couple of times and a while ago the mayor of Amsterdam threatened to permanently close the bar due to a shooting incident. This led to hundreds of people demonstrating cause they wanted their favorite hip-hop bar to stay. I’m very happy that they did and it’s a good thing it worked!
