Anyone heading to the Rembrandt House will probably pass this improbably slanty shanty – Amsterdam’s answer to Pisa’s tower. Once the home of the lock keeper, hence the name, it’s been carefully restored to look like it’s been in business for centuries, which isn’t actually the case. In any event, it’s a classic Dutch bar with great character and a good selection of local and Belgian beers like Hertog Jan and la Chouffe. Views of the canal are also quite stunning, but the place is often smoky which can be a bit of a turn off. Still, it’s old clay tile flooring and wooden benches are charming to say the least.
