Bar Babar is a wine bar that has existed since the end of 2023 on the bright Utrechstsestraat in Amsterdam, serving natural wines and carefully selected bites (the bread they have is yummyyyy).
For me, Bar Babar is a true hidden gem. I’m so glad the founders Django Reinhart and Ruben Charbon brought a little bit of France into town. From the moment I stepped in, I was mesmerized by its candlelit vibe and romantic atmosphere (if you’ve read my other articles, you know by now that I love such spots!).
The Utrechtsestraat (street) in Amsterdam is lined with a variety of shops, restaurants and cafes and leads to the famous Rembrandtplein (Rembrandt Square), so if it’s your first visit to Amsterdam and you’re exploring the area, then Bar Babar is the perfect spot to grab a glass (or more) of wine away from the touristy area.
The staff is very friendly and ready to help you pick the wine that fits your taste buds. Another big plus is that it’s walk in only.
When I relocated to Amsterdam, I regularly went to the tapas restaurant across the street called Pata Negra. Don’t miss checking it out as well and reading Kara’s article here.
