We found ourselves walking by and in need of a rest. This really cute bar fit the bill. A unique drink list and inviting bartenders make it worth a stop. I would not make it a destination, but if convenient, it's worth a try.

Incredible cocktails and excellent service in a very swank but cozy hotel bar. Each bartender tailored our drinks to our particular tastes and let us try different options. A great experience all around. Pricey drinks but well-worth it for a special memorable night out!

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.
