Café Chris opened its doors in 1624 as a beer house, and as such is the oldest café in the Jordaan.

Locals pop in for a game of billiards. The story goes that builders working on the nearby Westertoren came to collect their pay in the café. Unique to the interior: lack of space meant the toilet cistern was placed outside of the toilet area.
