Behind a suspicious looking door down a dark street in Amsterdam lies one of Amsterdam’s best secrets… a swanky cocktail bar, which is purposely hard to find and only accepts reservations.
Only same day reservations are accepted and this can only be done via telephone. Between 9am and 8pm, call +31 (0)63 404 51 22 and leave a voice message with your name, the number of people in your party and the time you’d like to arrive. You will then receive a call or text back afterwards.
The lovely host welcomed us through a black curtain, took our coats and hung them up for us. The host then guided us to a booth, with a menu showing which amazing cocktails were available on the wall.
I had the drink called Portrait Of A Girl In A Glass (see photo below) which tasted so good. Literally, this was the nicest cocktail I’ve had in a long time (and I’ve had a lot of cocktails!).
Creating a memorable experience, the staff are so passionate about what they do and the drinks should be enjoyed slowly as it has a really relaxed vibe. Although we did also have some shots!
Each guest gets such a special treatment, which makes you want to return. We were made to feel very welcome and I’d love to return to Door 74 if I go back to Amsterdam again. It’s such a unique experience.
