1. Delirium Café Amsterdam Piet Heinkade 4-6-8, Amsterdam, 1019

This bar launched with 500 beers (for real) -- with 20 of them on tap at any given time. And, if their big brother bar in Brussels is any indication, that list is only going to grow.

2. Waterkant Marnixstraat 246, Amsterdam, 1016 (The Jordaan)

Located in the Jordaan, this is one of Amsterdam’s best and friendliest central waterside attractions, from the people behind De Biertuin, Bukowski, etc. Waterkant (“waterside”) is named after the most lively area of Paramaribo, and the festive atmosphere continues in the colorful interior and on the Surinamese-led menu -- think pumpkin rotis, Jamaican jerk ribs, and watermelon G&Ts.

3. Café de Ceuvel Korte Papaverweg 4, Amsterdam, 1032 KB (North)

Perched waterside, Cafe de Ceuvel sports an industrial outdoor terrace full of recycled materials only, including funky mismatched tables and chairs, and a giant arbor that creates a snug indoor space. The decor might tip you off that this place is super sustainable and meat-free, and you'd be right. The menu here features dishes like seaweed burgers, lentil pâté, and pizza baked in an outside oven. The leafy interior makes for a cozy spot on cool, wet days, too.

8. W36 36H warmoesstraat, Amsterdam, 1012JE (Red Light District)

This former Red Light District coffee shop was transformed into a dramatic, glass-walled, leather-lined den of meat and drink. They take their steaks super seriously here, but you should show up for the terrific 'tails put together by a highly touted London mixologist.
