Perfect for escaping the Dutch weather.
With terraces open now, we’re all raring to get out there and spend some time in the sun. However, we all know that in Amsterdam the sun often comes with a downpour of rain, or a gale of wind, which threatens to ruin your lovely brunch on the terrace. However, there are plenty of places in Amsterdam to enjoy your beer in peace, with heaters to keep you toasty and either parasols or covered areas to stop you from getting wet. Here are our absolute favourite places to stay dry and warm on the terraces of Amsterdam. [Featured photos:@louielouie.nl/@morganandmees]
1. Bar Botanique
📍Eerste van Swindenstraat 581, 1093 LCM
This gorgeous, green oasis of tropical colours is the perfect place to drink a cold beer and pretend you’re somewhere warm. Not only do they have a lovely, heated terrace, but their food is also delicious. We recommend trying the tasty pizzas with one of their amazing cocktails, or perhaps something alcohol-free like the lemon and lavender soda. You can book a table on the website.
2. Meneer Nieges
📍Westerdoksdijk 40H, 1013 AE
Meneer Nieges serves good, hearty food on their lovely, heated terrace. Really, what more could you want? Plus, they have a fantastic selection of wine to pair that tasty food with. You can book a table on the website.
3. Morgan & Mees

4. De Biertuin (Amsterdam East location)
📍Linnaeusstraat 29, 1093 EE
De Biertuin has 3 different locations around Amsterdam, and they’re all worth visiting, but the only one with a terrace is their Amsterdam East location.
