Barco, which means boat in Spanish, is an apt name as this popular bar is essentially a converted ship. It’s a lovely space, cosy on a cold night, but somewhere which is bound to come into its own when you fancy an alfresco afternoon tipple in the summer months. The cocktail list feature around a dozen classic drinks, including an espresso martini and a whisky sour; all their juices are freshly squeezed and their house special, the Dry Barco, is a potent and highly drinkable mix of citrus and rum. They do a good range of wines, both by the glass and bottle, and prices are reasonable. The food menu features a range of tapas style dishes, including plates of octopus and manchego alongside more traditional Dutch bar snacks. The ship-board setting makes this an atmospheric place for a drink or two of an evening, the water running by, and there’s an agreeable and very, very Amsterdam vibe to the venue as a whole.
