The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Wonderful Speakeasy
Nov 2021 • Couples
Absolutely wonderful little speakeasy kind of place. They take no reservations and it's first come, first serve. The place is a bit small but, very nicely appointed. Staff abd drinks are fantastic. A little hard to find. We walked right by it the first time. There is just a small sign that says "bar" over the door. The door is locked and a heavy curtain pulled over the door. You have to ring a doorbell a wait a few minutes for them to let you in, if there is a seat. Highly recommended.

Very arrogant staff
Feb 2020 • Couples
We went there with a good mood wanting to continue our valentines celebration evening. We had a good experience once that why we like to come back. We rang on the bell, at the same time a big group of people went out from the place. A (asian) staff asked us “table for two”? I answered that we like just a cocktail as we were stil full from our long courses of dinner. The girl certainly answered that she have to check because there was not enough place and they wore booked by people...! She close door and left us waiting outside in the cold. It felt like she try to read us as if we only come for one cocktail then we wore not welcome. If the place was fully booked she would have said at the beginning! There are many good cocktails bar in Amsterdam with the most friendly services! I don’t need to be treated like that. Will never come back!

Great cocktails and amazing staff
Aug 2019
I decided to visit this bar after leaving the top 50 (in the world) rated Tales & Spirits. i can honestly say, this bar was on par, with the care taken, the quality of spirits used and the service provided. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, the banter was great and the cocktails were delicious.

I will definitely return.

You just lost a regular customer
Aug 2019 • Friends
I live locally in Herengracht and happy to take visitors to Oldenhof and sample the fun ‘speakeasy’ concept, I’m all in for that. But come on guys you just left us standing in the pouring rain tonight whilst you ‘find room’ - never again - you just lost a regular customer, future service and our word of mouth reputation. We walked on 5 minutes to a friendly face in a welcoming bar to write the review. Ultimately your loss not mine, have a think about that one.

Dear Neighbour, We are so sorry to hear about your negative experience. As an intimately sized, seating-only bar, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate new guests until we have a seat ready and available for them. When you indicated that you would be willing to wait until that time, we did not anticipate that the weather was about to turn or we certainly would have acted accordingly. We would never want anyone to get caught in sudden Dutch downpour, especially not our guests, and as such we always have umbrellas in the back at the ready to keep those waiting dry. We sincerely regret that we were unable to provide you with one in a timely enough fashion and do hope that the bar you found yourselves in that evening was to your liking. We understand your disappointment and do hope that in the future we might have the opportunity to welcome you back again. If we do get this chance, we suggest to give us a call 15 minutes prior to your intended arrival so we can ensure we have availability and make the necessary arrangements to welcome you upon arrival. Sincerely, the Bar Oldenhof Team.

I was here last night (7th August) and the staff (bald man, blonde woman) were both SO lovely and attentive - thank you to them! I got the Oh Mai cocktail and it was delicious.

Fantastic G&T Cocktails
Jun 2019 • Solo
I had wonderful G&T cocktails here in June 2019. I chose the 'Gin Mare', and then (on another day) the Hendricks, and both were excellent (also very large). The prices are high, but the place is lovely, the staff nice, and the drinks sublime.
