Rightly regarded as one of the better cocktail bars in Amsterdam, the stylish NJOY is a gleaming, urban space. These guys really know their drinks. The cocktail list is impressive on a number of levels. Divided into themed sections with names like ‘Alchemist’ and ‘Trendsetter’, the drinks are inventive and tasty in equal measure. The Polar Berry mixed fresh blackberries and raspberries with dark vanilla rum, mint and honey; the GiGi, a mix of white chocolate, grappa, cinnamon and orange is deceptively soothing while the Blazing Mule is a kiss-ass mix of fresh ginger and chilli vodka. They also know a thing or two about classic cocktails. Its popularity is such that it can get rammed on the weekend, so get there early if you want to be sure of a table.
