Project Description

The Cannabis Cafe first opened its doors for business in June, 1997. It operated for almost a year as The Cannabis Cafe before it was sold and renamed: The New Amsterdam Cafe.

The New Amsterdam Cafe still exists today at the same location at 307 West Hastings Street. A number of the unique design details I originally established remain, such as the exposed brick feature wall, the crown molding, the stained glass transom, and the iron grate.
