2 years after closing, Tenderloin beer bar Amsterdam Cafe to return

Popular beer bar Amsterdam Cafe could reopen in the Tenderloin within the next month—right across the street from its former location at 937 Geary St., which shuttered in early 2016 due to a sizable rent hike. 

In a message to patrons and supporters last week, bar manager Melissa Angel said the bar has received its license, and “the long wait for our reopening is almost at an end!”

"We will hopefully be opening up very soon," Angel wrote.

The former site of Amsterdam Cafe has been vacant since the bar shuttered in 2016

Amsterdam's new location will be right across from its old one, at 930 Geary St., the former site of neighborhood favorite Hoang Dat Coffee. 

According to SF Planning documents, the bar aims to be open every day between 11:00 a.m. and midnight. 

As for its former location at 937 Geary, an application for a proposed five-story tourist hotel on the site was withdrawn in September 2017, and no new plans have been proposed as of yet.
