Anyone from Amsterdam who likes arcade games should be familiar with TonTon Club already (check out the article). It’s one of my favourite spots to hang out at and have a good time, especially in the summer when you can sit out on the big terrace in the Westerpark. So when I heard that the owner was opening up a new concept, I couldn’t wait to go. The new spot only has one game, air hockey — which coincidentally is my favourite.
The place is really spacious with high ceilings, lots of tables, a cool and colourful interior, and an old-school hip hop playlist to top it all off. And then there’s the main attraction – a game room with 16 different kinds of air hockey tables. Curved edges, multiplayer, different kinds of pucks – they seem to have it all. The concept is pretty simple: stand in line at the bar for your drinks and tokens (€1 each or 6 for €5), and make your way over to the game room to kick some butt. It can get hectic on the weekends, but even if all the tables are taken, the wait usually isn’t that long. The drinks menu is quite extensive with lots of cocktails to choose from (around €10 each) and they also serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in case you work up an appetite.
All in all Puck has everything you need for a fun night out with friends!
