Lovely bar hidden away in the Jordaan area. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive. Each cocktail is themed on a Bond girl and tasted amazing. Perfect spot for cocktails.

Small bar in the Jordaan area but is a very classy and interesting bar. Staff were great and the decor was amazing - loved the theme! My tip would be to go for the leap of faith - where they make a cocktail for you. Loved it!

Found the recommandation on the web and thought: why not? It is a small local and quite crowded. But once you're seated the staff is very friendy and thanks to their great cocktail chart you'll easily find what you want. Prices are ok for what you get

This is tucked away in the Jordaan area, a little secret with the nicest cocktails you will ever have. You have to try the green smoke :) You won't regret it

Do you like sky bars where editors ignore you and people are dressed to the teeth? Good for you but then don't go to Vesper. This is an intimate James Bond inspired bar where you are likely to meet new people, discover fantastic flavours and new favourite cocktails. The bartender is very professional and friendly and I can recommend asking... More

Don't be fooled by the plain exterior, this is a classy bar. With simple, but cool, decor inside this is an excellent place to drink and chat. The hosts are attentive, make you feel welcome and most importantly - they do their job well. The cocktails are excellent, as is the service and if you are serious about getting a... More

Large cocktail menu. Very popular place but very small and hot. We could only stay for one. We both had a wonderful Vesper... shaken not stirred. The other cocktails looked lovely with some bar snacks. I'd definitely go back but earlier than 12am next time to enjoy it a little more.

Neighborhood Profile
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.
