A visit to The House of Bols, The Cocktail & Genever Experience on Museum Square in Amsterdam, is a unique adventure and an unforgettable interactive experience of the glamorous world of cocktails, liqueurs, bartending and the Dutch spirit Genever. At the House of Bols you will find out everything about Lucas Bols – the world’s oldest distilled spirit brand, which has been making liqueurs in Amsterdam since 1575! You will also discover Bols Genever – Holland’s rediscovered cocktail spirit.

House of Bols takes you on a spectacular journey through flavours, aromas, images, sound and film. The tour incorporates the Hall of Taste, where you will discover all 38 Bols liqueurs and how they are made, the Delfts blue room, the World of Cocktails ‘club’ and the mysterious Bols Genever Room.

The tour ends at the revolutionary Mirror Bar, where bartenders mix your preferred Bols Genever and craft a beautiful cocktail before your very eyes. Or maybe test your mixology skills by preparing your own drink! Those who wish to learn the art of flair bartending (think Tom Cruise in ‘Cocktail’) can do so in the magical Flair Booth with the specially designed Bols flair bottles. Cocktail enthusiasts can also shop till they drop in the Bols Shop or enjoy a second Bols cocktail for just € 6,50.

As winner of the Dutch Design Award for Best Exhibition and Experience, House of Bols is proving that heritage and history mix perfectly with innovation and contemporary design.

House of Bols is located in the famous Museum Quarter of Amsterdam, right across from the Van Gogh Museum and next to the Rijksmuseum.

A very enjoyable experience. Getting in was simple: our digital tickets were scanned at the reception, a member of staff gave us an introduction (and our audio guides), and off we went. The tour itself is not too short, not too long - by its end we were ready to try some cocktails. These were prepared very professionally and were all very tasty. Some of the attractions (like the flair booth) weren't available due to technical issues, but the staff were very straightforward about it. If you're out with friends, this is a fun way to spend a couple of hours.
