I've been twice to Waterkant and both have been brilliant. At night the music is great, the bar isn't too packed and if it's not too cold it's lovely to sit right by the water. The second time I went was about an hour before...More

This place is great, Waterkant sits right along the canal and offers good food, a great beer selection, and sights of the canal. Super impressed that the menu also details what is vegetarian, lactose free, and gluten free.

Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
