Update: Cafe Amsterdam has closed down. We wish the Linda and the team all the best for the future.
With a maximum capacity of 60 people, the three-room Cafe Bar Amsterdam is an intimate affair.
Found 2 blocks from Plaza 25 de Mayo, the cozy bar is a popular hangout for both locals and travelers. Decked out in wooden furnishings, the bar has a relaxed, friendly feel. It’s the perfect place to bring a book or laptop during the day, and to enjoy a fernet with friends in the evening.
Amsterdam show a range of local and international movies at 6pm daily. One of the regular screenings is the gritty documentary on life in the Potosi mines: The Devil’s Miner. The entrance fee goes to the Kusi Wasi boys shelter.
On Mondays, practice your Spanish with Boli Gringo, a night of language exchange games played by tourists and locals alike.
Tuesdays in Amsterdam is Cacho night, where you get a chance to take part in a traditional Bolivian dice game.
Every Friday evening, Cafe Amsterdam hosts live music performances from musicians such as local guitarist Gonzalo del Carpio. Amsterdam also regularly hold events on the weekends.
