House Bar Amsterdam


House Bar Amsterdam: for the best cocktails in the city centre

16 May 2017

House Bar Amsterdam is a new cocktail spot in town to go

House Bar Amsterdam is the place in the city center where you can go for cocktails on the weekend (and actually every day of the week!). They open their doors on the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal and will be a nice addition to the current restaurants and cafes there.. At House Bar Amsterdam it’s all about “joie de vivre” and great cocktails made with the best ingredients. Think of classic cocktails with a modern twist and when you’re craving a good glass of wine or a cold beer you can choose from a wide selection. Beside drinks you can order bar snacks to complete your night.

House Bar Amsterdam stands for classic with a modern touch

The interior got, just like the cocktails, a modern touch. The original building dates from the Renaissance, and it will become a room where modern influences mingle with Victorian features. Elegant, but comfortable chairs and a modern bar where even shows can be given. Nice!

House Bar Amsterdam is one of thé three new spots that are opening the doors next to the Kimpton De Witt hotel at Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal this Spring. The new spots are: House Bar, Miss Louisa Coffee & Beignets, Wyers Bar & Restaurant. Miss Louisa Coffee & Beignets will be the new bakery in the city centre, at Wyers Bar & Restaurant you can get quality American comfort food with a Dutch twist and House bar is a cocktail bar with a creative touch. All in the city centre of Amsterdam!
