Party Earth Gespot Review

The Scene

Gespot (Spotted) may be popular for its posh atmosphere, but it owes its real fame to the extraordinary and unconventional cocktails served at the downstairs bar.

Gespot (Spotted) may be popular for its posh atmosphere, but it owes its real fame to the extraordinary and unconventional cocktails served at the downstairs bar.

Inventive offerings such as the Asian Mary with wasabi and soy sauce and the Thai Basil Sin with basil and apple juice are created nightly by some of Amsterdam’s finest bartenders, many of whom belong to an elite crew of drink pros called The Fabulous Shaker Boys.

The wraparound banquettes in the simple and sleek bar area help create a stylish lounge vibe, but since the space is small, the young professional crowd often tumbles out to the canal-side terrace.

Just as impressive as the cocktail menu is the upstairs restaurant, an elegant and upscale beauty featuring chocolate leather banquettes and white-tablecloth service, as well as an eclectic menu, impressive coffee drinks, and top-shelf liquors in a romantic candlelit environment.

Easygoing and with an affluent yet sociable clientele, Gespot is a chic neighborhood hangout for true cocktail lovers.

Tip from Adriana:

Anyone looking for a dessert cocktail must absolutely try the Sgroppino, an Italian dream that’s a mix of vodka and lemon ice cream. It’s usually served as a small aperitif, but on warm evenings, it’s popular enough to be served by the carafe.

  • Crowd

    Young professionals and Jordaan residents, friendly and casual, 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Mostly R&B hits, with a few soul and funk tracks.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Excellent bar snacks include dim sum, oysters, and sashimi, while the restaurant menu features marinated veal, soft-shell crab, and sushi of the day.

  • Prices

    Bar snacks €6–€8, appetizers €8, entrées €15–€20. Beer €2.50, wine €3.70, cocktails €8.50, mixed drinks €7.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual to smart casual.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Friday nights after 11pm are best for catching a lively bar crowd.

A part of my things no one will ever read this review and end up at GeSpot on purpose, but another part of me thinks it deserves its place in a night-out guide for Amsterdam. If you hit it at the right time it's a lot of fun, bit of a clueless Dammer crowd, but fun and flirty nonetheless. I'd even say come here and splurge on their upstairs dining; they try hard to keep their menu appealing and special, plus the look of the place is comfortable yet modern and stunning. Honestly what sold me were those sgroppino cocktails downstairs, it's worth it just for that Italian creamy slurp of heaven.
A random pick but nice choice and location
