Red & Grey Best Hotel Bar Awards Amsterdam 2017

The Red & Grey Best Hotel Bar Awards consists of 4 awards. An independent jury selected 3 hotel bars in the following categories: Best Classic Hotel Bar, Best New Hotel Bar and Best Hotel Bar. The public got a chance to cast their vote for the Public’s Favorite Hotel Bar.

Best Hotel Bar
The Tailor in NH Collection Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky was selected as the Best Hotel Bar in Amsterdam for 2017. The jury states that ‘the cocktails and service are of tremendous quality and despite being hidden behind the lobby, even locals know where to find the bar and appreciate their spectacular cocktails.’

Best New en Classic Hotel Bar
Pulitzer Bar received the award for Best New Hotel Bar. The jury report states that this bar stands out with a ‘classy and unique interior, excellent cocktails and delightful service.’ Freddy’s Bar at Hotel de L’Europe became Best Classic Hotel Bar for the second time. ‘What really distinguishes this bar is its very own identity and a mixed crowd of locals and hotel guests.’

Public’s Favorite
SkyLounge in the DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Central Station can call themselves Public’s Favorite for the second time. With over 2.600 votes this rooftopbar can call their campaign for votes quite successful. It comes as no surprise that they received so many votes.
