Now he tells us about the 11 best cocktail bars in Amsterdam! Tales & Spirits Tales & Spirits is the highest ranked Dutch bar in the prestigious World’s 50 best bars-list, crafting unique cocktails by top-notch bartenders in a warm setting. The cocktail bar and restaurant is beautifully decorated and feels like home, located in a historic building that dates from 1550. Lijnbaansteeg 5 Pulitzer’s Bar The recently refurbished and re-launched Pulitzer Hotel combines its history in a classic hotel bar with the best cocktails. Warm, welcoming, luxurious, amazing drinks and service. The birthplace of ‘bar legend’ Andrew Nicholls’ Pineapple Old Fashioned. Keizersgracht 234 Porem Porem is a brand new speakeasy-style bar in the Chinese area of Amsterdam. Porem is a mix of old school Amsterdam café hospitality and a high-end cocktail bar. Friendly and experienced bartenders craft the best and creative cocktails for you. Don’t forget to order some of the exquisite Asian bar food from restaurant Geisha. Geldersekade 17/19 Door 74 Door 74 is Amsterdam’s iconic speakeasy (=hidden) cocktail bar. A dark, stylish, and intimate bar offering prohibition-style cocktails with rare spirits. Made by some of the best bartenders around. Call for the address at +31634045122. Mystique Find Mystique’s cocktail bar in the venue’s cellar. You can’t miss the long back bar full of shiny bottles, a giant block of ice and skilled bartenders.  This bar recently transformed into a tropical tiki bar pop up named Mystiki, and rumour has it they might be serving tiki drinks year round. Utrechtsestraat 30a Vesper Bar Vesper is a modern classic in the Amsterdam bar scene. It’s a small bar in The Jordaan area, cosy, relaxed and stylish with awesome drinks. Vesper Bar emphasises their ‘leap of faith’; go off menu and trust the bartender to make something special and catered to your thirst. Vinkenstraat 57 HPS – Hiding in Plain Sight HPS is a charming little bar serving high end cocktails in a décor that feels like last century, in a good way. They serve classics with a twist, the stronger type of cocktails. A hipster bar for sure,  the crowd is 95% expat. Great drinks are often accompanied by live jazz-music. Rapenburg 18 Calle Ocho The most fun bar in this list offers a total night out – from dinner till four in the morning. Great drinks in this Miami-themed bar, accompanied by home made, fresh, authentic Latin American street food. They serve the best frozen-margarita in town, as well as killer ceviche. Albert Cuijpstraat 226 1 The Tailor The Tailor Bar is the brand new cocktail bar of the recently reopened Kranapolsky hotel. The bar serves great cocktails developed by famous lady bartender Tess Posthumus, served by a well skilled bar team in a luxurious hotel bar-like environment. Dam 9 Feijoa  A bartender’s bar: a favourable hangout for bartenders. Why? Because of the relaxed vibe, great cocktails and friendly staff.  Located in the touristic heart of the city, so beware of bachelor party’s in the weekend. Vijzelstraat 39 The Duchess Twinkling restaurant and award winning cocktail bar at the W offers a dazzling selection of classic-style cocktails, punches and absinth fountains in a fairytale like ambiance. It’s a shame The Duchess predominantly focuses on being a restaurant, with such a stunning bar operated by very good bartenders. Spuistraat 172 Thirsty yet? I sure am!
