Things to do in Amsterdam, North Holland Province: The Best Nightlife

May 22, 2022 Myesha Cogley

This city, full of colorful homes, canals and bridges, is one of Europe's most picturesque capitals. Must-sees on any visitor's itinerary include the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and the world's only floating flower market. Rent a bike and join thousands of locals navigating Amsterdam's labyrinthine streets, or just take in the sights on foot. For an unusual and memorable alternative to hotels, consider staying in a houseboat.

Love this place- we come here so often now. The cocktails are divine, exactly how cocktails should be made. Definitely high quality. They narrowed down the menu which is good as there was so much to choose from, but there is still plenty of choice! I love the Circle of Life and the Bohemian Rhapsody, and another favourite is the Fermented Daiquiri. I can recommend for a nice Amsterdam experience, with a view of the Dam, a nice atmosphere and fantastic cocktails.

Wynand Fockink

In around 1679, Wynand Fockink opened his spirits and liqueur distillery on the Pijlsteeg in the bustling city center of Amsterdam. In those days distilleries usually included a tasting house and a shop; Wynand Fockink's was no exception. Today, three centuries later, the Pijlsteeg distillery contains an extraordinary collection of antique bottles in premises still furnished in the style of the seventeenth century. Wynand Fockink has continued, throughout the years, to specialize in liqueurs and jenevers which you can still see being made in the distillery. Join one of our guided tours, learn all about how our products are made and choose your favorite from our superb range of Dutch distilled products.

My husband and I spent a few days in Amsterdam, and included a walking tour of the Red Light District in our itinerary. Our guide, Stan, asked if we'd like to stop for a drink somewhere, and we soon found ourselves here at Wynand Fockink. What a great place! It's tiny and cramped and noisy and busy, but that just adds to the ambience. The jenever liquors are phenomenal; I tried 6-8 different ones and really enjoyed every single one of them. The bartenders were fun and friendly and more than happy to guide us as we explored the MANY flavors available. We had so much fun here, that we made a special second trip back the following day for another drink at the bar, as well as the purchase of several bottles from the shop next door.
