Patjepeeërs and uitvreters*! Geinponems and geitenbreiers! Yoghurtdrinkers and maleiers! Welcome to Bar Mokum! Mokum, derived from Yiddish and meaning ‘safe haven,’ is slang for Amsterdam. Hence, Bar Mokum serenades the city, its citizenry, and visitors from afar, its rebellious yet inclusive nature. Come and enjoy classy cocktails, but without the pompousness. As much as possible, we use Dutch spirits & liquors and try to benefit from local products and produce. And we’ll accompany it all with some old school hip-hop, funk, soul, jazz, and the occasional typical Dutch ballad. But keep it cool, or else you can take a hike. 

We are proud to serve you cocktails, mocktails and other refreshing and invigorating drinks, categorized according to the city’s motto: heroic, compassionate, determined.
Come and enjoy classy cocktails, but without being snobby about it. Our products are mainly Dutch distilled, local just from around the corner, the city or somewhere from the polder.

At Bar Mokum, we offer a wide selection of delicious bar snacks that perfectly complement your drinks. From the popular bitterballen to a tasty cheese platter and a refreshing shrimp cocktail, we have something for everyone. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy!
