Great beer and good atmosphere

This is one of those bars where you never want to leave. You could stay there all weekend and still not drink every beer available. The Gollem Precious IPA is a cracking beer along with the cheese plate which for 8.5 euro was easily enough for two people. Or if not sure try the flight for 10... read more

You could probably spend most of your stay in Amsterdam at this place. They have an excellent selection of beers from around the world, and the barman was enthusiastic and knowledgable enough to recommend beers for those less enthusiastic beer drinkers. They have a simple food menu, which suits the feel of the place. Very nice place.

Great selection of beers. The barman was very helpful- picking me something based on my vague request for "something dark"!. Be patient it is a very small bar and can get busy but is well worth a visit.

Great selection of beers. Try a lambiek. Staff know their stuff, and you can be sure of friendly advice if you want to drink outside the mainstream. A flight of beer is possible

My favorite bar in Amsterdam. Cozy, traditional and with a fantastic selection of (belgian) beers. Sit at the bar, strike up a conversation and discover some amazing new beers in the process.

Went for some pre-dinner drinks as Dr is a beer aficionado. Not disappointed! Amazing selection, great recommendations from the barman, and Mrs found a cherry beer she liked. Very, very highly recommended. The cheeseboard was also good, but this place is not intended as a dinner destination, so don't expect a full meal! An absolute must for beer lovers.

Loved the food. There was a cat in the restaurant and she sat on my girlfriends lap. It was next to Vondel park which made it very easy to get to.

Take a crowbar to wedge yourself in here (it's teeny and very popular) and grab a seat when you can and bed in for the evening. A truly fantastic selection of low countries' beers. If you need some bolstering against all those imperial pilsners they do a great cheeseboard. Remember to say hi to the cat if it deigns to... More

A very interesting beer bar, serving seemingly hundreds of beers. Lots of interesting nick nacks and nice tables in a duplex style. Nice to spend an hour or so in (If you like beer). Also worth going to tackle the steps down to the Loo after you have had a few!!

This little pub was a great find. We visited late on a Friday night and it seemed to be full of locals and the resident cat. We managed to get a seat up on the mezzanine area overlooking the bar and enjoyed trying some local beers recommended by the friendly and helpful barman. Apparently they also do amazing cheese boards... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
