Bar in Nieuwmarkt, Plantage & the Eastern Islands

Set in a historic 1917 brick building with stunning tilework and painted a retro colour scheme of pale green and pink, KHL's bar opens to a vine-shaded terrace that makes a superb spot for a glass of wine sourced from small vineyards. Regular live music ranges from Portuguese fado to pop and klezmer (traditional Jewish music).

KHL stands for Koninklijke Hollandsche Lloyd shipping company, and this was formerly the canteen for captains and maritime staff.
