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 treat guests to old school hospitality and table service for cocktails and small food platters. Reservations can be made up to 90 days in advance. If a date is fully booked, you may like to try your luck at the door for a walk-in table. Please note, our bar has an over 18 policy.
Opening hours:

Sunday till Thursday: 18:00 – 01:00

Friday and Saturday: 18:00 – 02:00

Friday, Saturday: 18:00 – 02:00
