    'There's no seating inside, on a busy night, partons inevitably find themselves staning in the street. But Wynand Fockink has a way of tumbling into your life like a character from a Roald Dahl book.' Read more

    this server in the picture is very inpolite and unfriendly, a shame for a place such as wynand focking. beware of her, and the rest will be fine.

    If you're a regular, you can give a name to your off-the-menu blend or combo. Point in case: order a Claus

    Do you want to try Genever (traditional Dutch liquer)? Come to this 400 years old bar. There's no seating inside and the place is small, but the whole experience is unique. Staff is very friendly.

    If you want to check out an old school genever bar, this is a must see. There are certain rules involved in how you take your first sip, but just copy what the person in front of you is doing...
