Cocktail Bar in Nieuwmarkt, Plantage & the Eastern Islands

With art-deco lights and waistcoated mixologists-as-alchemists behind the bar, cool speakeasy-style HPS (short for Hiding in Plain Sight) is tiny so it's worth booking ahead on weekends. Maestro mixers produce concoctions like La Vie en Rose (tequila, lemon and rose petals) and Beetlejuice (tequila, jalapeno-infused Cointreau, fresh beetroot juice and balsamic vinegar). There's European folk dancing with a live band every third Thursday.
