You can find a full overview of all 50+ participating bars in Amsterdam. We have selected the bars based on criteria such as hospitality, quality of mixed drinks, atmosphere and general awesomeness. We have divided them in four categories. Firstly, we have the dedicated Cocktailbars, where shaking and stirring drinks is the main thing. Then we have Hotelbars. The cocktail also takes the centre stage here but hotelbars are different from other cocktailbars, so we gave them a section of their own. And to show how the cocktail has expanded, we have also a large number of restaurants where mixed drinks are an important part of their concept. Some restaurants serve full blown cocktails, and we have created the category “Cocktails & Food” for them. But cocktails aren’t limited to shaking and stirring: also properly crafted longdrinks are considered cocktails. For restaurants serving this kind of drink we have created the “Longdrinks & Food” section. You can see how amazingly creative we are!
Each participating bar has created two signature cocktails, that represent their specific style. The first cocktail is based on a spirit while the second cocktail is based on a non-alcoholic brand. But both will be equally delicious! The style of the location will determine the cocktail you can order for the special price. It can be a shaken drink in a martini-coupe, a stirred cocktail in a shortdrink, or a refreshing longdrink and everything in between. We welcome you to visit as many bars as you can fit in one night, but we strongly advise you to alter between drinks with and without alcohol and to drink enough water during the evening. This way you can enjoy our Amsterdam Cocktail Week responsibly and get the most out of this first edition!
