This was our FAVORITE bar in all of Amsterdam! The decor is really eclectic and the bartender, Henny, is the kindest man I've met! Be sure to ask Henny about the history of the bar!

My girlfriend happened upon this small bar by chance. We only got drinks which were good. But the best part was the awesome atmosphere. Jazz playing on a record player. Old, dusty looking decor. Great place to chill and grab a drink. Definitely not a...More

Wandering around Amsterdam 3 years ago I wondered into this tiny bar that's been in business since 1798. It's my automatic stop whenever I'm in town. The atmosphere is great, decor matches the age. In its 6th Generation of family owners you are treated very...More

Just exceptional...full of old world character...a real step back in time. The bar owner is a lovely man who will pour great beer and play old jazz vinyls on the record player. Could easily stay all day...a must visit for visitors wanting to immerse themselves...More

You can not pass by Amsterdam without having a drink in this amazing little bar ! One of the oldest (and probably smallest) bar of Amsterdam (open in 1798), we appreciated it's unique atmosphere and decoration, it's jazz music in background and it's very friendly...More

Great - though smallest - place in Amsterdam old town. Amazing atmosphere, soft jazz and uncomparable gins served by a friendly and knowledgeable elderly bar tender. Fantastic way to top the evening.

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
