Amsterdam, Netherlands

W Lounge

This elevated bar offers unbeatable panoramas of the city with the stunning Royal Palace demanding your attention. Occupying the 6th floor of the stylish W hotel, this swanky setting comes with a stunning rooftop pool, which is a suntrap on Amsterdam’s warmest days.

But when the weather isn’t on your side, the indoor bar is just as impressive with floor-to-ceiling windows guaranteeing unobstructed views. It may not be the highest venue in the city, but it’s certainly one of the chicest. Drinkers can choose from an extensive cocktail menu as they listen to the sound of chilled DJ sets.
