Lovely old bar (arguably the oldest in the city) with a friendly and quieter vibe than many other local bars. The landlord is chatty and eager to tell the story of the monkeys! A good place for beer and for tasting Jenever 'gin'.

We stayed at the NH Barbizon Palace hotel and were pleased to find Int Aepjen literally right around the corner from the hotel.

One of the oldest bars in amsterdam! I declared this place "my bar" during my stay here. I came here every night and had drinks and chilled with binky the cat and hans the bartender is really great! Such an exellent place with a sultry atmosphere. I highly recommend visiting this place. You won't be disappointed!

Dating back to 1560, when sailors apparently used to trade monkeys for more beer, this pub is unique. Stunning interior, a few stuffed monkeys, a story about the Hartlepool monkey hanging incident. Good beer. A one off. Must be seen.

There was always a Grimbergen beer on tap, but from early spring it has disappeared, pity. Try Steenbrugge if you want to feel a real Belgian flavor in a real brown Amsterdam cafe. It's the best pub in the world - I'm sure about it.
