Hiding in Plain Sight
Rapenburg 18, Centrum
If you looked up "hipster" in the dictionary, it's likely there'd be a picture of Hiding in Plain Sight (or HPS, as locals call it)—and the clientele here would be the first to acknowledge it. Before you roll your eyes at the waiters in vests with waxed moustaches, take a sip of your cocktail; it's likely one of—if not the—best in the city. HPS is also a hangout for local musicians, so check the calendar in advance to find out if anyone's playing while you're in town.
J.D. William’s Whisky Bar
Prinsenstraat 5, Jordaan
The couple behind this Jordaan bar (it's a family affair—the initials "J" and "D" stand for their sons, and William for one of their fathers) is obsessive about whisky, and it shows. Behind the bar, open shelves drilled into an exposed brick wall belie rows and rows of backlit whisky bottles, so the selection is endless. The decor is a mix, with warm brown leather in the bar area and white walls, pine floors, and teal booths in the back, where you can order fresh, Asian-inflected food.
JuiceBrothers
Raamsteeg 2, Centrum
JuiceBrothers was founded by four friends, who decided in the summer of 2013, while on a canal boat, that Amsterdam needed a really good pressed juice place. Two years later, the first JuiceBrothers shop opened in De Pijp, followed by a second location in Amsterdam-West, and another in Centrum. (There's also a JuiceBrothers in the suburbs outside of Amsterdam, in the Amstelveen mall.) JuiceBrothers' main thing is still cold-pressed juice, using as many organic ingredients as possible. But they also make smoothies and serve a limited amount of breakfast (acai bowls, chia pudding, coconut yogurt) and lunch (a couple salads and a coconut wrap), along with some snacks and sweets (kale chips, oat bars, chocolate truffles).
The Cold Pressed Juicery
Willemsparkweg 8, Oud West
The Cold Pressed Juicery has two locations in Amsterdam: One in De 9 Straatges and one on Willemsparkweg near Vondlepark—both well situated for grabbing a juice/smoothie in the morning before touring around the city. The juices are cold-pressed and organic, and largely made from locally grown produce. This is also a good option for a quick lunch (salads, wraps, soups)—instead of throwing out juice pulp, they use it to make nut milks and other snacks.

The Cold Pressed Juicery
Herengracht 245, De 9 Straatjes
The Cold Pressed Juicery has two locations in Amsterdam: One in De 9 Straatges and one on Willemsparkweg near Vondlepark—both smartly situated for grabbing a juice/smoothie in the morning before touring around the city, or during a mid-afternoon pit stop. The juices are cold pressed and organic and largely made from locally grown produce. This is also a good option for a quick lunch (salads, wraps, soups). Another cool thing about The Cold Pressed Juicery is that instead of throwing out juice pulp, they use it to make nut milks and other snacks.
