If you’re all clubbed out or you’re tired of tried and true brown bars and coffeeshops strewn throughout the city, then it may be time to look into the vast array of wine bars in Amsterdam instead.
Wine bars are great for any number of reasons. They make for perfect date spots as they can be really romantic and intimate. There is usually good food to nibble on that pairs well with the wine. And wine bars are typically laid-back affairs, perfect for conversation with friends.
One of the best Amsterdam wine bars is Wijnbar Boelen & Boelen. Claiming to be the first wine bar in the city, Boelen & Boelen is an intimate haunt with exquisite French cuisine and large wraparound windows facing the street. Equally good is Vyne, a Jordaan wine bar for true vino enthusiasts looking for those rare cabernets and Malbecs. Vyne is great for both daters with one-on-one seating, but also for meeting someone new with a long communal table down the middle.
There are many more wine bars in Amsterdam to choose from, but no matter which ones you decide to try, you’ll always leave with a nice buzz, a full belly, and a longing for more.
