Café Nol

By day and from the outside, Café Nol looks just like another brown café in the Jordaan – a neighbourhood with many bars and cafes to choose from. But as the sun drops, Nol comes to life in all its neon-lit glory. Indoors its mirrored walls, chandeliers, and swathes of red carpet and curtains attracts a mixed crowd of older patrons who grew up in the neighbourhood, and youngsters, all sharing a passion for the sing-a-long Amsterdam folk songs that echo out onto the street.
