Poolhole: An Amsterdam pool hall (and more)

Hidden away, tucked into an alley off of the busy shopping street Kalverstraat is Poolhole, a pool hall in Amsterdam. It's exactly what you would expect for a pool hall. Pool tables (regular and large), darts and specials on pitchers of beer. Plus we saw stacks of board games on a few tables as well. As for playing pool, you can either rent the tables by the hour (which can get expensive after more than 1 hour if there are only 2 of you) or there are two tables that are coin operated so you pay per game.


  • Central location
  • Friendly staff
  • Reasonably priced pitchers of beer
  • Long hours of operation
  • Quirky fun decor


  • Pool area is also a smoking area
  • More than an hour of play gets too pricey
