Brilliant find, near our apartment so used it as a meet up point. The staff were amazing, especially Myrthe who couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating.

Definitely one of my favourite bars in Amsterdam! I used to work in the area for a long time and it's a shame I wasn't aware of this bar before now! I can definitely see myself coming back here on a regular basis :)

As a Gin Tonic lover I've ordered my drink here for the first time and they certainly did not dissapoint me. The Gin Tonics of Cafe Pollux are not famous yet in Amsterdam but should be! Really love the vibe of this cafe.

This pub has a great atmosphere and is perfect for couples/friends! We visited Amsterdam on a stag and as the hotel was next to this bar we frequented it regularly and enjoyed many beers here.
