Essentials in Amsterdam

With good weather you can stand outside, enjoy your drink and meet other people. The crew is always very friendly and will explain you all you need to know. Please note the're open from 2pm to 9pm.”

“Insider tip Very traditional bar and liquor store which date s back around 150 years. In this place you will not hear music, just people talking. A good variety of draught beers is of course available as well as a good variety of Jenevers (the Dutch gin or wodka). ”

Tapas Restaurant

“The absolute place for Jamon Iberico lovers. Possibly the widest selection of Jamon Iberico, from several region in Spain. They either serve it on the table, with a glass of wine and Manchego or you can take it with you. Personally, there is no way that I will pass by the neighbourhood and not pay a visit to grab my dose of Iberico.”
