3 Great Cocktail Bars in Amsterdam

I have recently visited Amsterdam for a couple of days. I went with one of my best friends and we managed to fit so much in 2 days. If you are interested to see everywhere we went and everything we did, please visit my Instagram stories.

What I wanted to share with you, is 3 cocktail bars you should visit because it’s probably not something you add to your Amsterdam itinerary (but you should!). Especially if you are a cocktail lover like me.

1. Flying Dutchmen Cocktails

A proper cocktail bar where you can expect to find well made classic cocktails, an experienced team, a warm welcome, and great service. The vibe is of a cocktail lounge, very dark and candlelit cozy surroundings. Perfect to start your night out.

Address: Singel 460, 1017 AW Amsterdam, Netherlands

2. Bar Feijoa

A second spot is not far away. It is quite livelier, you can expect a fun atmosphere and great drinks, the team who’s good mood will infect you and the crowd where you can make new friends.

Address: Vijzelstraat 39, 1017 HE Amsterdam, Netherlands

3. Door 74

This one is for speakeasy lovers, a place which is hard to find and once you are inside you are transported to a Prohibition era. I have 2 tips for you. First, make sure to make a reservation because you might not get in otherwise! And the second one, the entrance is in no way marked and you can only recognize it by ordinary-looking, double-sided, white-frosted glass doors, knock on them…

Let me know if you have visited any of them or maybe you are planning to?

Travel Bucket List

Happy Travel Tuesdays!

I could go on and on about how much I love to travel and even it is not so often I get to do it at the moment as my work keeps me in London (which I do love!) for most of the year and the rare occasion to travel is usually spent on trips to see family in Lithuania and Slovakia. I do not complain, oh no! However, one day I dream (and keep working on getting it) of having a digital nomad lifestyle.

There are so many places I would like to visit, and here are but a few of them:

  1.  Santorini, Greece

  3. British Columbia, Canada

  5. Chile

I could put many more places on this list but these are my top obsessions at the moment.

Where would you like to travel to?

Thanks for reading and I’ll see you back soon!
