Proeflokaal Arendsnest, Amsterdam

Proeflokaal Arendsnest, Amsterdam

In one of the most striking sections of Amsterdam's city center, this bar offers waiters who know their wares, great Dutch beers, and suitable snacks to take the edge off the alcohol. The beers are largely Belgian-style, so Belgian beer fans won't be disappointed, but there is also a fair number of interesting local craft beers that don't fit into any traditional style. And if you're into gin, they've got Dutch gins as well – just ask the friendly staff to recommend one that pairs perfectly with your beer.

If you want to sit outside, keep in mind that the outdoor seating area is rather small – probably 8 tables at most – but it is right by the canal (one of the prettiest in Amsterdam) and cozy. No warm blankets or heat lamps, though, so dress accordingly if you want to chill out there. Oh, and whatever you do, don't spend too long looking at the printed bottle list and the huge blackboard with the draught beers, or your head might start spinning!

Tip:
If you're up for a beer tasting, they set you up in a special room here, and you can book it for any day except Fridays and Saturdays, when it gets a bit busy.
