A Bar

Cocktail Bar in Southern Canal Ring

The InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam is an impressive 19th-century building right on the riverside, and its A Bar opens on to a huge sofa-lined terrace. Inky-blue walls are a stylish backdrop for cocktails such as an Albert Cuyp Markt with stroopwafel-infused vodka. It also serves bar snacks. There are regular chilled DJ sessions and live music.
