Vesper Amsterdam – Corner cocktail bar

Bars

"Vesper" is a tiny, cozy cocktail bar in Amsterdam. The dim lighting and few tables make for an intimate and very welcome setting!

Hidden on the corner of a little street in the Jordaan is Vesper, a tiny, cozy cocktail bar. Besides the impressive bar, it only has a few tables, which paired with the dim lighting make for an intimate and very welcoming setting. Sit by the window and watch the world go by, or sit at the bar and watch the bartenders shake up their crazy concoctions.

The menu has some quite unusual and unique combinations, as well as twists on some well-known classics. This is the place for you if you like to be adventurous with your drink choices.

The friendly host is happy to explain the menu in detail and give you recommendations. Or, if you're feeling brave, ask them to surprise you and see what you get! All of the cocktails are a great blend of flavours and also very strong. It's the perfect place to start or end the evening!
