If you’re looking for a great place to have a cocktail in Amsterdam, try the 2018 #31st best ranked bar in the world, Tales and Spirits.
If you love classic tales, have a taste for creative concoctions and a fun imagination, this speak-easy styled bar is perfect for you. They also serve dinner and tasty treats to pair with your drinks. I would highly consider this a must place to visit when in Amsterdam.
Tales and Spirits also has a pretty awesome set of house rules. Simple and straight to the point. Short reading, don’t be a douche bag and respect others.
They even featured an awesome Star Wars themed menu. One drink dedicated to each of the three original films, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of The Jedi. I didn’t personally have any of these drinks but I’m sure they’re fantastic (like everything else Tales and Spirits make).
The menu features quite a few different cocktails including their house specials, themed cocktails and even a great selection of Tales and Spirits Favorites. I had the ‘Show Me Your Ink’ cocktail — it was so good, I had to order another. The drink featured a few different types of rum, lemon juice, Memphis BBQ Bitters (say what?!) and pirate sherbert. Tell me that doesn’t sound like an incredibly fun and tasty beverage.
Whether you’re looking for a quick place to grab a cocktail or some place fun to have dinner, Tales and Spirits is definitely worth your consideration. The customer service was fantastic and the atmosphere was surely one of a kind. If you’re looking for something to do before hand, I recommend having breakfast at the Upstairs Pancake House and checking out the Heineken Experience!
