Every time we get to Amsterdam we go here and they have never disappointed us with the quality and service! We showed it to several friends and travellers and they loved it aswell. Very, very good spot for a drink.

So on the plus side, the cocktails that we drank were very nice, the cocktails that were seeping into the denim on my lap, not so much. It all started quite well. We ladies were allowed in by the waiter whose stiff, clumsy attempts at...More

When we were last in Amsterdam we stayed on the same street as Bar Oldenhof but for some reason didn't make it in until our last night in town. We're really glad we did. Great ambiance and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Stop in for a drink!

We showed up and rang the bell. They were very polite but basically told us they were full and suggested trying again in an hour. So we had a whiskey at another bar nearby and came back. They were happy to see us when we...More

Walking past this rather decent place you wouldn’t notice what it hides behind its black curtains. We rang the doorbell and were welcomed by a very nice and mysterious servant who told us to come in. We absolutely had no idea what would await us:...More

You wouldn't notice it walking past, it plays on the exclusive/'members club' vibe - you need to know where it is and ring a doorbell to be let in. Once inside the interior is beautiful and cosy, feels like sitting in an old hunting lodge....More

Had a few drinks, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. You won't be short on what to choose to drink.

On the outside you can hardly see it is a bar, but that is part of the concept. You have to wait to get in and that can take a while because there is limited seating. But it is worth the wait. Once u get...More

After spending several years rolling my eyes around the hipster 'havens' of Shoreditch I was looking forward to moving to Amsterdam and getting far away from the calling cards of the 'trendy bar'. The first thing you need to know about Bar Oldenhof is that...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
