Bar Louis epitomises my take on that infamous Dutch word, gezellig. Often described as a neighbourhood living room, this hotspot is actually one of my favourites for date night. The raw, industrial vibe of the hanging lamps and exposed brick wall is simply stunning. Plus, it’s central location near one of Amsterdam’s ‘red-light’ areas makes it perfect for prostitute…ahem, people…watching.
Take in the cosy atmosphere as you sip on a locally brewed craft beer and help yourself to one of the board games piled up in the corner. Feeling peckish? Don’t be shy to try out their delightful food menu either, you’re certainly in for a treat.
