Tunes Bar information
Lonely Planet review
Craving a tangerine-tinged gin and tonic with a side of shrimp bitterballen (small, round croquettes)? Or a glass of sparkling wine and plate of oysters? Then pull up a chair at the see-through bar at uber-mod Tunes, located in the posh Conservatorium Hotel.
