This lively "Capital of the Netherlands" is one of the world's best hangouts, which lures partygoers and general non-conformists. Tree-lined canals, parks scattered about and bicycle fleets all contribute to the wandering mood of this city. You can submerge yourself in art, history, 17th and 18th century architecture, a fresh mug of beer, a "cigarette" you rolled yourself or better yet: the fine dining and a museum's worth of rock memorabilia at the Hard Rock Cafe Amsterdam. Located near Leidseplein along Max Euweplein, the restaurant is split into three levels to offer you the best gaze upon our waterways, offering a welcoming atmosphere for visitors and locals alike. Live music courtesy of the Paradiso is sure to get those wooden dancing shoes tapping, so hoof it on down to the Hard Rock Cafe Amsterdam for such a great time, you'll be surprised it's legal.
