If you are a true rum fan- give this place a miss. They serve bicardi, Havana and zacapa- beyond that....nothing. Funny how you go to a gin bar or a whiskey bar and you will find one rum on offer, but come to this place...More

We have been driving across Europe sampling many, many variations on the G&T. The most unique so far (and our favorite) is the Monkey 47 with Fever Tree at this establishment. It comes garnished with lemon grass (to complement the gin) and a few red...More

I think this is a fair bar in the Red Light District, It isn't fancy, sometimes over crowded, somewhat slower service than I usually like. It is a great spot to drink a pint and watch the people go by!

Ordered a coffee but when it arrived it was cold. Send it back and the next one wasn't much warmer. Wouldn't recommend as there will be far better places to have a beer or a coffee.

It's called Cafe Cuba but they don't play Cuban music, it's all R&B. Inside it's rustic, dirty and needs a proper clean. Cocktails are all ice and very little alcohol or mixer. Ordered a Lychee Love cocktail (see pic) that turned out to be all...More

Love to sit on their terrace on a nice summer day with a scroppino or a beer and some nachos and just watch people pass by. In the evening I find it gets too crowded.

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
