The glamour of long lost times enters the modern day at the Pulitzer’s Bar. This timeless hotel bar tells a contemporary tale of cocktail history through a classic menu and an effortlessly elegant atmosphere. Thanks to its makeover in 2016, the interior captures the accessible elegance of old school hotel bars in a monumental Amsterdam building with its own entrance at the Keizersgracht. One could easily flee the bustle of the city, yet overlook its signature canals, in one of the comfortable armchairs around the fireplace or talk the night away at the impressive Art Deco style bar.
High school graduate Ernest Hemingway, furthered his education through traveling the world. For a real taste of local life, he said, “Don’t bother with churches, govenment buildings or city squares, if you want to know about a culture, spend a night in its bars”.
For our 4th menu, we took inspiration from the legendary life of Ernest Hemingway. From his time spent in Italy during World War l to the late glamorous nights in Paris in the 1920s, and later from his stop in Cuba and perhaps his most famous book “The Old Man and the Sea”.

Refreshing, Aromatic, Sweet, Sour
Drinks that stood the test of time, all time favorites and undoubtedly the most popular off-menu drinks we served at Pulitzer’s Bar in the past years. We took the liberty to play around with some of these classics and gave them a house twist.
Sometimes you just need a little retreat from the busy world outside. Tuck yourself away in our secluded and sumptuous bar while you soak up some Amsterdam sophistication. Our exclusive range of wines, single malt scotches and brandies are the perfect accessory while your thoughts disappear into the canal view. And if you fancy trying something new try a Jenever, a Dutch version of Gin.
From bar takeovers to menu launches and local events; there is always something going on at Pulitzer’s Bar.
A perfect drink should be enhanced by a perfect paring of delectable bites. Luckily Pulitzer’s Bar has put together a small selection of snacks that will perk you up at the end of a busy day or prepare you for a much longer evening to come.
A bar where time stands still (even if it’s just for a minute) is as good as a holiday.
Every inch a gentleman – an outstanding drink and comfortable chair can make his day.
Pulitzer’s Bar is not available for private events. Pulitzer Amsterdam does offer other suitable venues in the hotel.
