Great little pub with a real Amsterdam feeling. Skilled and friendly bar staff. Fantastic old day decor, please ask a local or bar tender to translate some of the riddles on the beams!! Can highly recommend the Jonge Jenever with a couple of beers. We kept on coming back for more! PROOST!

Come to amsterdam 4 to 5 times a year and love this place. Always feel welcome by staff and locals. The only regret is its not in my home town.

My husband and I stopped off here on our way back to the hotel. Had a nightcap of old gin. Last time were here I had a young gin. Even though it's small it never seems too loud or intimidating. Very cosy and friendly. The barman, a mature gentleman, is easy to talk to and happy to advise you on... More

One of the smallest bars right in the center of Amsterdam. If you're not much of a beer drinker, try Genever (traditional Dutch gin).

This great little Jenever tasting bar is a little piece of heaven in what is sometimes an overwheming city. If you appreciate good gin, you will appreciate the wonders of this little bar, the owner Rene is only too pleased to tell you about the various flavours on offer.

de Ooievaar ("The Stork") is one of the most traditional and oldest still operating proeflokaals (tasting houses) in Amsterdam. Opened by the Van Wees distillery back in 1782, this establishment to this day brings you world class jenevers and liqueurs, and they now even brew their own bier. Located at the Northern end of Zeedijk (Sea Dike) Straat, up by... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
