Where to drink in Amsterdam




The Tara

Originally an old English pub but now revamped into an international bar and restaurant.

Café De Pels

Cool little artsy bar tucked away in 9 Straatjes.

Café Belgique

More than 50 types of Belgian beer crammed into one tiny little pub.

Ultimate Pub Crawl

Want just more than a glass of beer? Party all night with this pub crawl!

Café De Pijp

This trendy cafe is a restaurant in the day and a bar at night.

Brouwerij Troost

This former monastery brews all its beers on site!

De Gollem

This is an old school Dutch bar with many delicious beers on tap.


Generator didn’t just open a hostel, they also opened one of the coolest bars/clubs in town, in the basement of the former Amsterdam University.

Nescio Café and Auditorium Bar 

This is another fun one by our friends at Generator. The old university’s auditorium has been transformed into a bar. It’s like going back to school, but way more fun!
