Our favorite bars in Amsterdam
Beer specialist De Biertuin (“the beergarden”) opened up a new, central location near Leidseplein. It’s a larger, sexier version of the Eastside original, with a big range of beers. There are 21 brews on tap, including Punk IPA, Brooklyn Lager, Murphy’s Irish Red, and various seasonal drafts. Porem is a brand-new speakeasy-style bar in the Chinese area. Porem is mix of Amsterdam café-hospitality and a high-end cocktail bar. Experienced bartenders craft the best and most creative cocktails for you. When you are looking for a club to take it up a notch, we recommend the Jimmy Woo. A nightclub with its own Wikipedia site, the first in Amsterdam with a “Door Bitc”h and famous visitors like Mick Jagger, soccer players, soap stars and the Ocean’s Eleven crew. Jimmy Woo has been an ‘it’ club for years and after a careful restyling remains one of Amsterdam’s most distinctive nightclub
Tipping culture at Bars in Amsterdam
For many tourists, the tipping culture in The Netherlands is quite the mystery. Unlike other countries we do not have specific tipping habits. All service personnel in the Netherlands earn a minimum wage. Therefore, tipping is not required, but it is appreciated. In general, the Dutch don’t tip for one drink or when they buy something to-go. However, if you’ve been in a bar all night it is very much appreciated if you leave the bartender a little tip.
Whatever bar you choose, we hope you enjoy our selection of the best bars in Amsterdam
