Door 74, Amsterdam

June 15, 2015

For a while Amsterdam didn’t really ‘do’ cocktail bars, though thankfully this has definitely changed over the past few years.  But Door 74 was Amsterdam’s first speakeasy-style cocktail bar, one of the true originals which still manages to keep a fairly low profile.  Maybe it’s because the Dutch don’t like to spend money (it’s not the place to come to for a cheap beer).

Deliberately hard to find, with an elusive feel and a dark Prohibition era style interior, this place is worth waiting in line for.  They used to have a reservation only (on the day) policy, but they seem to have relaxed this.  Still, it’s worth calling/texting them (again, only on the day itself) and trying to book a table in advance.  The cocktails are expensive for Amsterdam (EUR 12 – 15) but they’re innovative and delicious.
