Bar Americain

There’s no hotel bar in Amsterdam that has welcomed so many international stars as Bar Americain. The illustrious wall of fame displays the many celebrities that have visited the bar through out the years. The wall pays tribute to those frequent visitors that have passed away like Herman Brood, Amy Winehouse, Joe Cocker and Percy Sledge.

Bar Americain is famous for the superb cocktails; no wonder that the bar is known to be a hotspot for cocktail loving Amsterdam. Both the location as the nightclub atmosphere are reason for many to revisit again and again. In the basement you can find a professional music studio where you can demonstrate your musical talents.

Bar Americain is located in the heart of Amsterdam, so finding a parking space on Leidsekade, or along the canal, can be quite difficult. Therefore, we recommend parking in the Byzantium parking garage. It is located approximately 200 meters from the hotel. The parking rates at this garage is €2 per 20 minutes up to a max. of €68 per day.
