The Best Hotel Bars in Amsterdam

| January 09, 2018

From award-winning cocktail bars and speakeasy-style hideaways to super-deluxe design-led dens, hipster-proof watering holes and intimate bars with cutting-edge cocktails, Amsterdam’s hotel bar game is strong.


The Hoxton Amsterdam

Why it made the list

A popular watering hole with creative locals and guests, this award-winning hotel bar offers cocktails and more in a stylishly laid-back environment with a living-room feel. So, settle into one of the Mad Men-era armchairs and nip on your Negroni in style.

Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht

Why it made the list

Adjacent to the open Marcel Wanders-designed lobby, decorated in Delft blue, with navigation motifs, sexy chandeliers and large windows overlooking scenic “Princes Canal”, you’ll find Bluespoon Bar, which offers classic 20th-century cocktails inspired by the periods before, during and after the Prohibition. Tip: Order the “El Greengo”, a margarita with avocado, tequila and pineapple, which works oh-so-wonderfully.

Hotel TwentySeven

Why it made the list

Stop by Bar TwentySeven for highly personal attention and probiotic cocktails that are said to "balance out the stomach" and possibly help prevent hangovers (yes, really!). And don’t forget to admire those Dam views and the backlit bar made from 250 million-year-old onyx.

NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky

Why it made the list

Stylish The Tailor (winner of the “Red & Grey Best Hotel Bar Award Amsterdam 2017”) is the home base of “Best Female Bartender Worldwide 2015” Tess Posthumus, whose “bespoke cocktails” include the well-constructed “Cuban Mist” with rum, apricot liqueur, tobacco bitters and Serrano ham served in a smoke-filled glass cloche.

Pulitzer Amsterdam

Why it made the list

For well-crafted cocktails with canal views, intimate fireplace nooks and an Art Deco-style bar, Pulitzer’s Bar is one of the best in the city. In fact, we think it’s a must-visit. Tip: try the “Dashing Daisy”, made with marigold-infused gin, a mandarin-calamanzi shrub, orgeat and Peychaud’s bitters.
