Excellent beer selection, but staff seems rather disinterested/slow at times — makes it kind of hard to order anything.

Walked in and didn't quite know what to have from the huge selection! Told the bar staff what we liked and they came up with some great suggestions which were reasonably priced and very tasty. Great humour, fast service and attentive staff make it a lovely little place to stop for a few. Would recommend.

Super nice bar tenders. Excellent at helping select the perfect beverage. The bar has a great vibe, historic with just the right noise level. Cozy and warm spot worth checking out!

I have seen nicer and friendlier beer bars in Amsterdam. The guy at the bar could not recommend any beers. Next to that we got in contact with some tourist and were asked by the personal to keep it more quite, appetently the other 3 persons in the bar could not handle the fact we had fun. So overall I...

Great atmosphere here - conversation friendly and a fun place to finish off an evening in Amsterdam. The staff were very helpful - suggesting beers and even letting us taste a sample before we made our decision.

This is a perfect bar to visit with a group of friends who are all interested in trying good beers. As everyone previously stated, the selection is out of the world. The waitress did a wonderful job explaining the beers also. I would like to add that the cheese bowl with mustard was lush! Would definitely return and recommend you... More

I truly enjoyed visiting this place - a number of times. There is a great selection of beer, and the staff were very helpful with info and tasters. I was also able to order a plate of bar snacks, which consisted of cheese, pickled onions and fennel crackers, which was a great accompaniment to the drink.

If you enjoy a good specialty beer (like me) then “In de Wildeman” in Kolksteeg situated in a former Amsterdam distillery is your place. “In de Wildeman” is a beer tasting bar with 18 beers on draft and a selection of more than 250 different types of beers on bottle. With it’s very authentic atmosphere and unique character, I would... 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.
