It’s small, with mighty cocktails! Even with only a handful of people, the atmosphere is great. Snug and sophisticated; it’s a little diamond in the rough. Also, the cocktails are glorious. After a local bartender recommended this place 3 years ago, I’ve returned several times.

Really dedicated staff, proud staff, adventurous staff all united in providing a tongue tastic experience of cocktails. Local suppliers ( random guy delivers honey from his bee balcony a few blocks away), environmentally aware and sociable. Well done, this was a pure customer experience

When something advertises itself a a James Bond themed bar you expect some decoration to support this but alas this was not the case this evening. Very small bar on a corner in a residential area, there was very little inside the bar to suggest...More

Amazing bar. Very James Bond themed. If you’re lucky you’ll get Koen to create his masterpiece for you. Cocktails are comparable to touristy places in price but a thousand times more delicious.

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
