Thoroughly enjoyed all of our cocktails here. Although they are quirky you can tell a lot of thought, effort and expertise has gone in to creating the recipes and the whole experience. Staff were super chatty and helpful recommending other clubs for us to try....More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

We had a lovely dinner before we went for cocktails so I do not know what the food tasted like but it looked great.

You will need to contact Tales and Spirits direct. Though I think outside they may be able to, ad in the right weather it is a great atmosphere street side, on a primarily walk through alley

We love food, every second, every minute and every hour we think about food. Eating shouldn't be done only three times a day. We like to eat all day long. That is why our kitchen is open till late in the evening. In our kitchen we don't differentiate between starters and main courses. Just order what you like and if you want to eat more, you order another dish. Our kitchen combines the best of different international cuisines, using classic and avant-garde culinary techniques. Did we mention we love food? Hmmmm.... However we might love our drinks even more! The variety in drinks is so big, that nobody should stick to one drink in their life. At T&S we offer you a wide variety of spirits which all have their own story. We like to introduce you to new flavor combinations in our drinks and tell you the tale of the spirits which come together in your glass.
