I was fortunate enough to find this little bar in the city. It has an excellent selection of various Dutch hand-crafted beer. Probably one of the best in the city. Very friendly staff. A must stop.

The ground floor is rather small and crowded but that's where the beer is. There's more room downstairs but you need to go upstairs to order. Selection is very good. You won't be disappointed.

Favourite place in Amsterdam. Amazing beer choice which constantly changes. Fantastic staff who are keen to recommend beers you might like (give tasters etc), even when it's busy. Even if you can't get a table it's fun to sit at the bar and soak in...More

Wonderful place to meet nice people and drink great unusual beer. This got rave reviews under restaurant category, which is quite misleading, as there only cheese plates available. BUT beer, room, people , and bartenders were great! Go for the beer and the vibe.

It's a normal looking bar with a great beer selection. We sat down by the canal, which was very nice. It's located in a great scenic neighborhood. The prices are good for a bar with a good selection.

Always worth a visit to the Arendsnest when in Amsterdam to try out a wide choice of Dutch beers. Be prepared to have to wait to get served.

Very good choice of draught beer and close to Jordaan which is the prettiest part of Amsterdam. If you can sit outside then even better.

As long as you like beer, cheese and meat. OK, and genever. If none of those float your boat, best look elsewhere. Great service, a really nice place to chill for two or three hours over some carefully selected brews and a cheese plate. Never...More

We had an hour or so to kill before dinner and came across this pub. It serves 40 dutch beers on tap and many more in the bottle. Initially, the sheer choice can be off putting but the helpfulness of the staff in recommending what...More

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
