We had a pre-dinner drink here during our recent trip to Amsterdam. It was a busy Saturday evening but we were able to find a table with a nice view off the canal. We particularly liked the ambience. We had wine but they had a good really cocktail list. The snacks they serve with the drinks are a nice touch.... More

We found ourselves loving this bar because it has the Best Bar Tenders and they make the Best drinks after a long day of walking!

Yesterday I visited the bar with our youngest daughter. She was treated like a queen. Two perfectly made non-alcohol cocktails for her and for me a Negroni style but softer, more tender. We enjoyed our little visit very much. The bar is dark, with secret corners, couches and books. Nice.

This time in the evening for drinks. The waiters and cocktailshakers are good. They even make cocktails which are not on the menu. I like that service!

Stunning looking bar, very soave and sophisticated (as was the hotel, will stay here the next time!)! The bartenders were friendly and made great drinks (on the pricier side). Wonderful place to have drinks after a day of shopping, sightseeing or I would guess for the locals to hang out with friends.

Timeless, dark wood bar with bar seating and lounge chairs and cocktail tables. Wonderful wine selection and hand crafted cocktails. The bar snacks were a tasty surprise.

Loved the Pulitzer Bar. We were staying at the hotel and made it our nightly ritual but many people came in from the cold for a spell. The wait staff was super friendly and vibe was easy going and comfortable. Highly recommend.

Description
The glamour of long lost times enters the modern day at the Pulitzer's Bar. This timeless hotel bar tells a contemporary tale of cocktail history through a classic menu and an effortlessly elegant atmosphere. Thanks to its makeover in 2016, the interior captures the accessible elegance of old school hotel bars in a monumental Amsterdam building with its own entrance at the Keizersgracht. One could easily flee the bustle of the city, yet overlook its signature canals, in one of the comfortable armchairs around the fireplace or talk the night away at the impressive Art Deco style bar.
