These 41 Amsterdam coffeeshops are threatened with closure

We've obtained a list of all the 41 Amsterdam coffeeshops that are either already closed, or will have to close thanks to new Dutch laws.

Coffeeshop 1e Hulp
Amsterdam's Coffeeshop 1e Hulp (which is not in danger of closure, thankfully).

This story has been developing for a while now and has already resulting in the closure of multiple coffeeshops in Amsterdam already, due to a new Dutch law requiring coffeeshops to be separated at least 250 meters (0.15 miles) from secondary and vocational schools.

The amount of coffeeshops in The Netherlands has been decreasing for a while.
Coffeeshop totals are decreasing in the rest of The Netherlands as well

This used to be 350 meters walking distance and would have resulted in the closure of 164 coffeeshops, but it has luckily been reduced to 250 meters.

The ruling is made possible thanks to a trade-off between the mayor of Amsterdam and the Department of Justice Minister Opstelten. Instead of having to enforce the so-called “weedpass”, Amsterdam has to reduce the amount of coffeeshops in the city.

Coffeeshops that did not have to close yet, did have to change their opening times in weekdays from 7 PM to 1 AM.

In the weekends, they can retain their usual opening times.

The full alphabetical list of coffeeshops threatened with closure by this policy embedded below.

Note: Coffeeshops with their name in bold have already closed, based on this Dutch article from Amsterdam news website AT5.
