At walking distance from the Central Station (heading west or in other words to the right when exiting the station) there is cafe Thijssen at Brouwersgracht (Brewers Canal) 107.
A nice place to get a drink and hang out with friends until late in the night.
Also the location is at walking distance of many other bars and pubs. Situated in the Jordaan it’s a nice bar to start your tour through the city nightlife. For instance followed by cafe de Prins, cafe Nol and De Blaffende Vis (The Barking Fish).
