Reguliersdwarsstraat 74, Amsterdam, Netherlands
AH, AMSTERDAM. So much to see, so much to do. Perhaps the best attraction, though, is this bar - and we mean that in all sincerity. Because, away from the high times and window shopping, this is an establishment that is world renowned.
Door 74 is a speakeasy style in concept, its pressed tin ceiling being a first for the Amsterdam drinking faithful.
Then there’s the leather, dark woods, smart lighting and covert entry requirements.
These features might not move the well-travelled bar aficionado, but in the face of other, more rowdy, drinking establishments in the city, this approach presents a welcome change of pace and a genuine point of difference and originality.
Indeed this was a pioneering venue when it launched and, thanks to a considered and expert approach to mixed drinks, a comprehensive menu that regularly changes and all the bartending expertise you’ll find in cities more populated with cocktail options, it remains a flag-bearer for mixed drinks in the Netherlands.
The country has an extraordinary drinking history, not least with its genever, so it is a pilgrimage for anyone with an interest in imbibing.
