We had an amazing Stay on Sunday-Evening in the Whiskycafe. The Range is amazing, the Prices are very fair and the Staff very friendly. BUT: No Credit Cards accepted - this should be changed immediately. I give 5 stars anyway because the Bartender was very...More

This is a small bar in terms of physical foot print but with well over 2000 different whiskies it’s a very impressive place. The barman was very nice and helpful and recommended a taster menu to us. We could hear him talking to others recommending...More

This is an unassuming little place , dark wood interior, simple stools and tables, nothing fancy, but houses the most extensive collection of whiskey in the region. The bottles are lined up all over the walls and even the ceiling. Single malt paradise! They give...More

They have Green Bushmills! And about a thousand other selections. This cave of a cafe/bar has a great atmosphere and knowledgeable bartenders. The place was packed at 1 am, but people were friendly and polite, even in the crowded space. It is located a mere...More

If you like a whiskey there's plenty to choose from. Small place but really welcoming. Bit pricey I suppose but the welcome you get makes it worth while. Mind the stairs though!!! Very steep so don't over indulge on the whiskey before realising the toilets...More

Superb choice of whiskies for whisky nerds like me - had a 1982 St Magdalene 30 year old (pictures, superb), a 1984 Caol Ila 30 year old, a '77 Glenburgie and a Glenesk amongst others. They do half measures (2cl) which helps one taste as...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
