Sneak away to Tales & Spirits to sip classy cocktails and tell scandalous stories.
TALES & SPIRITS ••• TASTY COCKTAILS & DELICIOUS BITES
Hidden away on a quiet walking street, T & S tempts the cocktail lover to stop and stay awhile in their elegant bar.
The interior features dark wood and glass chandeliers, and is the perfect setting to relax with an expertly crafted cocktail in hand and swap stories with your companions.
Ordering off the menu is a challenge as the descriptions all sound delicious. On our first visit to T&S we settled on a deliciously dark forest berry concoction called Fallen Lady, the fruity pink Ouwe Hoeren, and a passionfruit-topped drink served in a big mason mug. That was just the first round, after that it was hard to stop. On our second visit we sampled the chocolate raspberry version of the Fallen Lady, so delicious you might drink them until you fall off your bar stool.
Unlike many of the other fancy cocktail bars in Amsterdam, Tales & Spirits also serves dinner in addition to bar bites. The menu looks amazing and changes seasonally. Right now you can have oysters, truffle risotto, and momofuku pork buns along with your drinks. Yum! If you are in the mood for something basic but decadent, try the fried crunchy chicken. All of our friends rave about it but they gobbled it up so fast we didn’t get to taste it.
Next time you’re in the mood for a classy cocktail and a bite to eat while in the center of Amsterdam, drop in to Tales & Spirits.
