Not your average sort of cocktails, we had never heard of any of them. The waiter was fantastic and asked us what sort of spirits we liked and pointed out some of the best cocktails. Not the cheapest at about 14€-18€ a drink. The barman then started making sample cocktails for us to drink, based on what we told him we liked. He was very knowledgeable about the city and recommended places to eat. Great up market little bar within a hotel. Worth a visit, if you want something more than the usual pubs and bars in the areas.

Decided to go to an upmarket bar for cocktails and splash out on over priced drinks. Was enjoying my €17 cocktail very much, until a mouse ran by and had to leave as I am terrified of them. Waiter told me 'Mice are more scared of us than we are of them', which didnt help matters as we quickly paid our bill. Definitely will not be back during our visit here in Amsterdam, 'dive' bars are cleaner.

James provided a superb and friendly service and his knowledge and skills in making cocktails was excellent. His “Auld Alliance”with Talisker is a winner. A lovely evening sitting at the bar.

I gave a perfect review for the bar at Park hyatt Bangkok but after going to this, this wins hands down.

Location: perfectly situated at dam square, where there's no smell of weed in the bar.

Drinks : boy, their bespoke cocktails are the best, to the extent of being magical, especially the ones curated by the female bartender, the strong ones. Like perfumed drinks? It caters to all your senses, sight smell, taste and all.

Nutcracker was perfect with a refreshing touch of kraken rum, frangelico, pineapple juice.

Changing outfit : robust and finally I know what is jenever.

Travelling rose: gosh! Perfumed rum?

Unfortunately their website was not updated (for 2 years!) but the bartender was nice enough to make the Warsaw mule for me. I am a sucker for mules, but could have stuck to Moscow mule, cos this Warsaw mule killed it, I couldn't go on for the next cocktail.

Oh, and the nuts!! Perfect with dried fruits.

The 3 bartenders behind the counter were perfect as well, no snooty attitude and engaging too without infringing on your privacy.

Prices could be a little steep as compared to other alcohol joints in Amsterdam but what you get is quality bespoke cocktails and atmosphere. Note the crowd seems to come in quite late here.
