Amsterdam is one of my favourite destinations for a city break. I have been lucky enough to visit a few times and try lots of the great bars that this wonderful city has to offer. These are just 5 of my favourite bars in Amsterdam.
Bars in Amsterdam
Tales & Spirits
1012 TE Amsterdam
If you like fancy cocktails with really imaginative names then Tales & Spirits is the bar for you. It has an extensive cocktail menu so there is plenty to choose from and it was hard to decide as they all sounded amazing. We sat at the bar as all of the tables were being used. It had a good atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful.
1012 VN Amsterdam
This modern bar is located on the 6th floor of the W Amsterdam hotel. Its outside terrace is a great place to enjoy a drink and take in the views over Amsterdam city. A drink with a view is a must when travelling to a new city and the W Lounge won’t disappoint.
G&T Bar at Foodhallen
1053 AT Amsterdam
If gin and tonic is your tipple of choice then you must visit the G&T bar inside Foodhallen. This bar serves up a huge variety of gins with the recommended mixers and garnishes. They taste as good as they look. Foodhallen is a busy food lovers paradise. It is an indoor foodmarket, great for an evening of food, drink and live DJ’s at the weekend.
The Hoxton Hotel
1016 BJ Amsterdam
I have stayed at The Hoxton Hotel for my last two trips to Amsterdam (click here to read my review). It is a great hotel in a central location. The hotel lobby is home to a modern bar with lots of comfy sofas, very friendly staff and great cocktails. The bar is great to relax after a days sightseeing or the perfect place to start a night out.
On a Need to Know Basis…
This is the first speak easy style bar in Amsterdam. It is hidden behind a secret door and the address is only given out when you call the reservation number to reserve a table. I love a secret bar (as my husband is always telling me) and we had a great time enjoying cocktails in Door 74. The décor is stylish and there is a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
These are just 5 of the many great bars in Amsterdam. Its a fantastic city with so many places to eat, drink and explore. If you are planning a trip to Amsterdam add these bars to your to do list and be sure to check them out. You may also be interested in some of my other posts –
