If you haven’t noticed the G&T craze hitting the city you must be living under a rock. Get yourself out to one of our favorite spots for a gin and tonic in Amsterdam asap!
BEST GIN & TONICS IN AMSTERDAM
Mossel & Gin
This Westerpark hotspot has a big terrace that is the perfect place to relax with a cold drink on a sunny day. But when it’s blustery out, indoors is cozy too. With 13 different Gin & Tonic combos on the menu, you can sit and sip all day long. We love that the drinks come in “half” and “whole” sizes so we don’t feel as greedy ordering five “half” drinks… Mossel en Gin is definitely one of our favorite places for a summertime gin and tonic in Amsterdam.

Next time you visit De Foodhallen, skip the wine and beer and head to the G&T bar. We were drawn there originally because the wait for a beverage was not as long, but then we kept going back for more! And more… Also be sure to check out the cocktail bar upstairs that is open during the weekends.

This summer make your way to the waterside terrace at Nevel for G&Ts with a view! The location on the IJ is the perfect spot to sip a cocktail while watching the sky turn pink as the sun goes down. When the weather isn’t so nice, cuddle up inside next to the big windows and watch ships pass on the water.
But you won’t have to survive on only gin. Nevel serves a hearty Sunday roast, brunch and dinner by famous chef Ricardo van Ede.
