  • A proper beer and whiskey bar, where the staff even know about their products. And that's unusual in Amsterdam... They didn't have my flavour on draft, but the bartender offered me something interesting instead. Not exactly my taste, but close enough. All in all, a good place to come back to
  • Excellent whiskey selection, knowledgeable and friendly bartenders.The best part was the chamber music played by a live rotating ensemble. Yep, chamber music. French horn, flute, chello, full-on chamber music. Perfecto!
  • A chord quintet by the window invited us to come inside. The evening was a blast! Amazing environment and bright music. Nice and wonderful surprise! Thank you once more for the great music. Keep going with the classic eve! It is remarkable and different.
  • Really nice whisky and beer bar. Has a great interior and nice atmosphere. Huge choice of whisky and a selection of brewed beers/ales. Staff on the bar very welcoming and helpful. Probably my favourite bar of the weekend.
  • We had a great and awesome whiskey tasting here! Michael was super knowledgeable and very nice! Five stars for sure and would recommend everyone to go here!
