CAFE VERTIGO

Inside, on the ground floor of the Film Museum, is the Cafe Vertigo. After working hours, around six to seven in the evening, the place is mobbed - Inside the Vertigo Café no matter what day it is. Ordering a drink takes a bit of perseverance as everyone crushes up against the counter waving guilders at the hassled bartender. After a while you learn that standing there waiting your turn is useless and you either join the fray or slink out with your thirsty tail between your leg. If the weather allows, you can take your drink outside and sit at a table underneath a giant Chestnut tree that Outside the Vertigo Café serves as a canopy. There you can observe small groups of young men and women on roller blades stumble over themselves as they try to hold simultaneous conversations on their cell phones. Even so, it's a wonderful place to sit and watch the sun set over the Vondelpark lake with a foaming glass of Grolsch as company.
