In addition to the special signature cocktails you can get at Juniper & Kin, it also features its own unique appetisers. Namely, one floor up, the bar has its very own greenhouse. In that greenhouse, ingredients are grown that are then used in the dishes you can order alongside the cocktails.

Bar Oldenhof is also easy to reach, being a 15-minute walk from Dam Square and a 10-minute streetcar ride away. However, it is always difficult to get into Bar Oldenhof, since the bar does not take reservations and it is always busy. You just have to get lucky to get in. Bar Oldenhof is not a swanky cocktail bar like other bars in Amsterdam. It is a very cozy bar with a wide range of whiskeys and dutch beer. But the signature cocktails are also worth trying.
