Bar Mokum

Named after the Yiddish moniker for Amsterdam, this cocktail bar dedicated to Dutch culture serves twists on classics with local slang as names (to maintain a modicum of politeness, we aren’t gonna translate them). The steep staircase where you enter from the street gets backed up with out-of-towners looking for a vibe, so make sure to reserve a seat in advance. We like the vermillion Red Light District section towards the back, but you can also try your luck at the far end of the bar. You’ll only get some olives and nuts, so either come here before a quieter dinner further in De Pijp, or afterward for a digestif.
