Pressroom / Pressroom is a INK hotel in Amsterdam’s vibrant heart. It functions as the living room of our hotel guests and the place where locals gather to meet. It still has the energetic vibe of the actual pressroom from the old days and they have great cocktails! Go there and try them!

Vesperbar / Boutique Bar Vesper is located in the middle of the Jordaan area in Amsterdam, between the trendy Haarlemmerdijk shopping district and the Brouwersgracht. Vesper has a large variety of great wines, beers and an extensive cocktail list. Due to the intimate character of the bar, Vesper is a great location for small get-togethers, cocktail parties or just a nice drink after work.

Café Panache / Right off the beaten track, Panache is located on the less familiar part of the Ten Kate market, in Amsterdam West. Panache is created by good friends who joined forces to convert an old market storage into a vibrant bar & restaurant. The meaning of the word “panache” is a flamboyant, original, confident but little reckless way of doing things. And that’s exactly what this eclectic café is all about. The main restaurant features a large bar with a specialty of cocktails by the pitcher.

Gin & Tonic Bar at the Foodhallen / Wine and gin&tonic bar in one. They have all kind of gin tonics and they are delicious. This bar is located in a classy indoor food market called the foodhallen. So nice to zip from your gin tonic and look around. I love this place because of the diversity of people and all the little food bars. When you love food and alcohol and beautiful people and buildings you really should go here.


Zappaz / Zappaz is your destination for cocktails, food, art & music where exceptional cocktails and champagnes are ready to be served.

Mossel & Gin / If you fancy seafood and G&Ts, Mossel & Gin is the place you are looking for. In the amazing and green Westerpark you find an extremely laid back and wonderful terrace where the very friendly staff serves the best mussels, lobsters, shrimp meatballs, crab tartar, oysters and steamed mackerel. The idea is to eat your meal with one or two G&Ts. At night they build a charming fire outside where you can romantically have drinks under the big trees with the sound of streaming water from the river behind you.

Ma’dam / Madam is the panoraMa bar and restaurant perched atop the A’DAM Toren. During the day, this swanky setting is part of the LOOKOUT experience – but, as soon as the sun goes down, the music goes up and it is transformed into Amsterdam’s highest skybar. At Madam, guests are able to savour stellar cocktails, fine brews – and, of course, a stunning view of Amsterdam from the 20th floor. Madam is the only bar in town where it’s OK to stare endlessly out the window.

?   ?  Overhoeksplein 3

Tales & Spirits / Tales & Spirits is a home away from home. A multi-level building featuring a cocktail bar with restaurant serving exquisite drinks, amazing food, and bar bites in contemporary, unique, and vintage glassware.
