What a quirky place although its not very big but a lovely atmosphere. They have an amazing collection of 2000+ different Whiskies. We visited a couple of times and had a member of different staff each night and both equally friendly and knowledgeable. We had...More

If you like whisky, go there. I wish I could give 4,5* Good bartenders. We will come back more often.

If you like a whiskey there's plenty to choose from. Small place but really welcoming. Bit pricey I suppose but the welcome you get makes it worth while. Mind the stairs though!!! Very steep so don't over indulge on the whiskey before realising the toilets...More

Superb choice of whiskies for whisky nerds like me - had a 1982 St Magdalene 30 year old (pictures, superb), a 1984 Caol Ila 30 year old, a '77 Glenburgie and a Glenesk amongst others. They do half measures (2cl) which helps one taste as...More

I believe this is the only decent whiskey bar in Amsterdam, the relaxed atmosphere and the range of whiskeys offered is ample. You will find common and very rare whiskeys in this place. This is definitely where you want to end your night.

Stopped at the Whiskycafe just to check it out, was surprised to discover a very extensive Scotch collection. Tried a few flights, all good, especially the Knockando 18yr! Gave me a few ideas for my own mancave decor!

We stayed for one night in the Hotel Americain. Had nice dinner there and a few stops in the lovely Leidscheplein area. In the smallest hours of the night we decided to have a last stop at L&B's. Which was a good choice. Equally minded...More

Holly crap this place is amazing. They have it all and more! Whiskey fan wet dream, must partake and talk about it.

Massive selection of whisky at just about all price levels (only lacking the absurdly expensive). Walked in not long after opening, so only one person at the bar, but enjoying my whisky in peace with only some very nice music (vinyl!) playing was pretty perfect....More
