This popular watering hole that has been serving Amsterdammers for over a century is not a standard brown bar. For starters, it isn’t very brown. In fact, it sports a colourful old world tile floor and its walls are covered in elaborate Dutch tile tableaux of old breweries, Amsterdam scenes and alcohol ads. In addition to the tasty beers written on the blackboard, the menu lists a whole two cocktails so you can have a mojito or a caipirinha, but you should probably whisper your order to the staff so the rest of the patrons don’t stare. Modern music is not uncommon and the snack menu includes dim-sum and ‘Indonesian balls’, which we didn’t have the courage to order. ‘t Loosje also has an impressive terrace in the summer.
