The owners of Smokin Barrels just keep doing it right. I don’t know exactly what they do or how they do it but every spot they open turns out to be a success. They have opened many spots, most of them in the eastern part of Amsterdam (like for instance Bar Bukowski), but recently also in the western part of the city (tropical Waterkant). The newest hot spot is Smokin Barrels, situated on the recently renewed Beukenplein in the heart of Amsterdam East. The restaurant takes up almost half of the square with a terrace that is much bigger than the restaurant itself. The heaters do their job as the terrace is always full, no matter how cold it gets.
But then, the most important thing: The Food. Burgers, lobster, cote de boeuf, beer, cocktails, surf ‘n turf… Need I say more? If you have any space left you should try the dessert with all different kinds of chocolate mixed together and served in a jar.
Good to know: In the weekend Smokin Barrels is also open for brunch. It is not possible to make a reservation.
