Café Oporto captures the true essence of this city with its charming character. This 'brown bar' has the typical dark woody interiors and brown walls giving it a cozy feel. It serves traditional strong Dutch gin known as Jenever, draft beer in the traditional Dutch pint, a variety of wines and for the uninitiated, there's always English tea with cookies. The cafe is a favorite with locals and tourists alike, throughout the year. It has special celebrations on the Queen's birthday, New Year's Eve and whenever the Dutch football team game is on.
Diep is sandwiched between two equally trendy hangouts, Seymourlikely and Bep. These places have a very pre-club feel to them. The Diep crowd is slightly older, not geriatric by any means, just slightly more mature than in some of the other bars in the center of Amsterdam. The cafe itself has a very "now," camp feel to it. Lots of interesting touches with special mention for the ticker-tape sign above the bar, which gives information about the music that will be played and the image projector that's used to spice up the walls. There is a DJ to liven the place up, and the atmosphere is pretty relaxed with people standing outside and interacting with the clientele from Seymourlikely and Bep. This little "strip" is a hangout for the hip and trendy and if you consider yourself one of that select group you should definitely pay a visit.

Billing itself as Dam Square's only Irish bar, there is in fact very little Irish about Yip Fellows. It is instead a rather cozy little bar, halfway between a traditional brown café, as these low-key establishments are called by the Dutch, and the more sports focused grand cafés found throughout Amsterdam. What the bar does have is a great location, right beside the NH Krasnapolsky on Dam Square, meaning that a spot on the tiny terrace or at one of the tables beside the windows is perfect for people watching on Amsterdam's busiest square. Pub snacks such as the ubiquitous toasty can be ordered here too, and for prices that are quite reasonable considering the bar's location.
A corner café and bar where Dam Square meets the busy and bustling Damstraat, Café Zwart is a lively and welcoming venue for locals, ex-pats and tourists alike. The bar's terrace stretches around the corner, so it's sure to have some sun at almost any time of day. When the sun goes down, the party atmosphere inside keeps guests warm. The extremely friendly and fun bar staff are happy to chat, crack jokes and keep the vibe going as they pour everything from wine and spirits to strong Belgian beers. A pool table in back is perfect for those looking to test their skills, while the space in front of the bar often turns itself into an impromptu dance floor.
Tales and Spirits serves cocktails which are crafted to perfection by their generous and talented bartenders. The interior of the bar is brightly lit with the glow emitting from gorgeous chandeliers. Wooden furnishings give the place a vintage look and modest tables and chairs make comfortable seating spaces. What if...?, All things nice, Little Miss Trouble, Stings like a bee, and Zombie are some of their concoctions that taste as fun as they sound. Duck liver brioche burgers, Brandt and Levie sausage, and crunchy chicken complement the drinks very well. They also have a separate dinner menu and dining room for those who'd prefer a more substantial meal.
