Stumbled across this place by accident as it was close to our hotel. Never tried jenever before and the staff took their time to talk us through all of the different types before we tasted them. There is is beer on tap but I would...More

Came across this fine place more or less by accident. But out of nowhere we came across this curious and relaxed place in the middle of the Amsterdam hubbub. A test room for different Jenevers and other liqueurs, in a 1618-property, A place to sit...More

Very disturbing. Came for a visit, ordered a drink and began to visit with others, was almost immediately met with unwelcoming comments from proprietors I will not be ordering anther drink. I recommend you go to Cafe Karperschoek, much nicer operators.

Went here on a recommendation and was so glad we did! The bar is really cosy and very dutch inside, the landlady recommended some Jenever based on what we liked - and was spot on! Definitely worth a visit.

I was with a bunch of colleagues and we came cross this place. The Atmosphere was fantastic and the landlady was very charming and extremely knowledgeable of her products. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that wants a quiet yet astounding drink.

This 17th Century building (actually the cellar is apparently 14th century) houses a truly unique bar. Specialising in Jenever (sort of Dutch gin) and home distilled liqueurs, it's steeped in history as well as spirits! It also offers excellent beers. Most of the window glass...More

The Dutch don't have gin, they have ginevre and this bar specialises in it. It is a lovely old bar with lots of history and atmosphere and they make some of the ginevres in the basement. The lady behind the bar was very friendly and...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
