In Amsterdam, any 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 heated terraces in Amsterdam to enjoy your beer in peace, with covered areas to stop you from getting wet. Here are our absolute favourite places to stay dry and warm on the terraces of Amsterdam.
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 lemon and lavender soda. You can book a table on the website.
2. Morgan & Mees
📍Tweede Hugo de Grootstraat 2-6, 1052 LC
This comfy hotel just outside of Jordaan has a lovely bar, with plenty of tasty food to munch on and delicious drinks to sip. It also has a heated terrace, so that you can stay out longer and enjoy the lovely (unpredictable) Amsterdam weather. You can book a table on the website.
📍Marnixstraat 246, 1016 TL
Waterkant has such a brilliant vibe, inspired by De Waterkant in Suriname, South America, which means that their kitchens are full of the most delicious ingredients, perfect for eating on a beautiful day overlooking the water. You can book a table on the website.
📍Westerdoksplein 10, 1013AZ
This fabulous, eco-friendly eatery is perfect for soaking in some vitamin D on a rainy day. They serve street food from around the world and there’s a large, heated terrace outside for those chillier days in Amsterdam (most days). You can book a table on their website.
5. Bar Mash
This little gem is located in De Pijp, and they serve really tasty Thai food. There’s a heated terrace but they’re not taking reservations, so you’ll just have to turn up and cross your fingers that you get a seat, here. Check out the website to read the menu.
6. Cafe Bloemers
📍Hemonystraat 70, 1074 BT
Cafe Bloemers has been feeding the people of Amsterdam for a long time now and their lovely heated terrace is perfect for spring. Check out their Facebook page for more details – it’s a great place to enjoy yourself and stay warm at the same time.
