Located just 10mins from central station, this quaint cafe with its cannabis friendly attitude, picturesque waterfront view and history as a centre for cultural and social development, is the true personification of the spirit of Amsterdam.

A vape and dab station will be present, as well as DJs playing music, all to create the atmosphere required to chill out and enjoy the day.

Reverie and Louden
Reverie was raised by a single mother in Northeast Los Angeles, Highland Park. Her household was full of dysfunction & she ran away for the first time in the 3rd grade. Her poetry was always her safe haven. She frequented the school counselor, detention & was suspended often. Despite her behavioral issues, she maintained good grades & even had her poetry & art published. In the 7th grade, Reverie discovered “underground hip hop” & her poems transitioned into raps.
In high school, Reverie obsessed over graffiti, which lead to her first arrest & fights, which eventually got her expelled from school. She began kicking it with a gang & heavily abusing drugs to mask her depression. Louden, her brother & now producer, was selling crack to feed his heroine addiction, got stabbed & shortly after was sentenced to 1 year in a juvenile detention center.
In hopes of a second chance at life, Louden & the family moved to Washington, where they began to record music. In 2009, they released Reverie’s first mixtape ever, ‘Castle In The Air,’ & within 24 hours, it got 3K+ plays. It was then that they realized their music could become something much bigger.
9 years & 10 chronicled projects later, Reverie regularly tours all over Europe & USA & has dedicated fans around the globe. She & Louden still record music together regularly & have cultivated an organic, cult-like following, which they call ‘Satori Mob,’ which is also the name of Reverie’s urban wear clothing brand. Hip hop saved their lives
