Came here after dinner for a drink with 2 friends. It was one of the hotter summer day so we started with a glass of bubble and then a bottle of a dry french rose. The wait staff was fantastic. The vibe was chilled with great music. We got one of the table by the window that was opened with... More

Fabulous decor, friendly staff and great selection of drinks! We had lunches & dinners in the bar/ restaurant and it managed to impress every time! Not only that the food was great! But our party of several people also included one Vegan, one Vegetarian and one gluten intolerant person. Needles to say that the chefs and staff did their best... More

Been here for a GT. The bartenders did a great job with the Monkey 47. Great and cozy bar. Entrance is quiet hard to find, and I found by and accident. Experience.

Lovely bar with great service. My wife and I had a drink before dinner, while we waited for our kids to get ready. The bartenders were very knowledgeable, drinks were wonderful. Snacks were also provided. Loved it.

We stayed in the hotel and had drinks twice in the bar. The hotel has gone through extensive renovation and the bar and surrounding areas are very well done. The staff is young and attentive. You can sit at the bar or in several areas around the bar with comfortable seating areas, some with canal views.

Came here as part of our staff at the Hotel Pulitzer. The bar has just been refurbished and its stunning. The atmosphere is really relaxed and the drinks we had were very nice. Compared with many bars, I felt the selection wasn't huge however.

We didn't eat here, just went in for drinks. But it was great spot. The bar is full of eclectic furniture and it's located next to a canal (of course!) so it was a nice view out the windows. The staff were also friendly.

In the past we loved the Pulitzer restaurant and would dine there even if we weren't staying in the hotel. As the hotel is undergoing renovation the Pulitzer has been re-imagined as Janzs. The wonderful mural has been removed and the decor modernized not necessarily to its advantage. It is now quite trendy attracting a younger, livelier clientele which increases... More

The glamour of long lost times enters the modern day at the Pulitzer's Bar. This timeless hotel bar tells a contemporary tale of cocktail history through a classic menu and an effortlessly elegant atmosphere. Thanks to its makeover in 2016, the interior captures the accessible elegance of old school hotel bars in a monumental Amsterdam building with its own entrance at the Keizersgracht. One could easily flee the bustle of the city, yet overlook its signature canals, in one of the comfortable armchairs around the fireplace or talk the night away at the impressive Art Deco style bar.
