Cafe P96 - is a very typical Amsterdam bar/cafe. Founded in 1975 by Alice de Waad with her husband and formally known as Cafe "Princess", bar had a few transformations during its' era and in 1980 when de Waad family extended the bar bourder to the neighbore building finally got renamed to Cafe P96.
Nowadays Café P96 welcomes everybody from student to businessmen, from old Amsterdamers who frequented “Princess”, to tourists visiting the city just for a few days. Everybody would find themselves relaxed and welcome. This is what makes Café P96 so special. The owners Alice de Waad and daughter Edmee, still work behind the counter. The bar is very popular for hosting parties. Generally because of the size, which caters for a hundred people easily. That's one hundred without huge queues at the bar, plus no extra fees are required to book the venue. But you have to take into consideration that P96 would not host a private party. They love their regular customers and want to be open for them all the time.
Café P96 is one of the few places in Amsterdam that is open until 3-4 am in the morning. That is another reason for it to be so popular. It becomes a meet-up point for many employees from neighbor bars and restaurants, where they can sit down, stretch their legs after a long working day and relax enjoying a glass of beer or wine with their friends before heading back home for a well-deserved rest.
