    Encyclopaedic menu, affordable pricing and a cosy, unpretentious vibe. There's only ever one guy behind the bar so service can be slow. Plus the place gets packed. But it's a winner for a wee dram.

    Design and ambiance. Generally it's pretty hard to find the Japanese whiskey in a bar but you can find all types of Japanese whiskies in this bar.

    Large range of whiskys to choose from, something for everyone and beers for the rest. Can get quite packed, so be patient for a seat or just stand.

    Pretty incredible whiskey bar. Amazing amount of bottles but really cramped and hard to get proper service. If u try to get something rare it may take awhile or never

    A true gem in Amsterdam. This family-run whiskey café has hundreds upon hundreds of whiskies; you'd be hard pressed to find a Scotch they don't have. Lovely setting and friendly staff.

    They open at 7pm and are usually crowded by 7.30. Still, an excellent place to either get a quick drink (or two), or try out this nice bottle you've been eyeing for a while now.
