What to expect

Your skip-the-line entrance ticket for House of Bols gives you access to the world's largest cocktail experience. Located in the heart of Amsterdam's Museum district, House of Bols is a unique adventure and unforgettable interactive experience focusing on the glamorous world of cocktails, liqueurs, bartending and the Dutch spirit Genever. At the House of Bols, you will learn all about Lucas Bols – the world’s oldest distilled spirit brand, which has been making liqueurs in Amsterdam since 1575.

You will also discover Genever – Holland’s local drink and rediscovered cocktail spirit. As winner of the Dutch Design Award for Best Exhibition and Experience, House of Bols is proving that heritage and history mix perfectly with innovation and contemporary design.

Your self-guided tour includes a visit to the Hall of Taste, which houses all 42 Bols liqueurs, Delft Blue Room, World of Cocktails Club, Bols Genever Room and the Mirror Bar, where bartenders will mix a Bols Genever and liqueur cocktail of your choice right in front of you. If you’d like to try your own hand at bartending you can do so in the Flair Booth containing Bols flair bottles.

Following your tour choose to upgrade your experience to enjoy a lovely 3-course dinner accompanied by a delicious Bols cocktail at restaurant Solo, located in walking distance of the House of Bols.

Or choose to attend a half-hour cocktail workshop at 2.00pm, 4.00pm or 6.30pm. During this workshop you will learn how to make the most delicious cocktails and create 2 different cocktails yourself. Decide whether you want to do the House of Bols audio-tour before or after the workshop. Make sure to arrive an hour before the workshop, or have an hour after the workshop to do the tour. Do you want to do the workshop at 6.30pm? Then you can only do the tour beforehand and you need to be at House of Bols one hour ahead of time.
