This cozy bars has more than 100 beers on tap from local Dutch breweries, as well as a small, but decent selection of wines.


Sat on a canal in the center of the Dutch capital, this bar has a lot going for it. There is ample seating inside among the wood-paneled walls, but it’s outside it really comes to life. Pull up a chair right on the canal and admire the boats going past as you sample the extensive menu, and you won’t want to go anywhere else.


Staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating, with perfect English spoken. They are happy to advise as to which beer to order from the befuddling array on offer, and the wines on offer are also delicious.


You can order bar snacks, too, but sausage and crisps is about the extent of it. That said, you should be eating elsewhere and coming here to try some of the Netherlands finest bars rather than filling up on chips.


It’s easy to spend a lazy afternoon here exploring the menu, and the place is popular at night without getting too rowdy. If you are looking for a nice, quiet spot away from the crowds and the red light district, this place is a great choice.


A bottle of wine is $28; beers cost around $4.

The Future of Space Tourism

Space tourism grew out of fantasies and unfilled promises that seemed out of reach until nearly two decades ago. In 2001, American businessman Dennis Tito spent $20 million for almost eight days with the Russian spacecraft that orbited Earth 128 times. Other million-dollar space rides followed with wealthy space tourists over the years. But will space tourism ever become more accessible, or will it always remain a bucket list adventure for the elite?

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
