Events Calendar for Discerning Drinkers

January events image 1

January events

January is for some a time for reflection. For others it highlights the start of Dry January, in which they abstain from all alcohol. This should in no way stop one from visiting their local watering hole!

Instead, many bars refocus on their non-alcoholic offering, as well as giving more low-alcohol options. For most bars this month is a tough one, so make sure to support your local bar, with a Shirley temple or visiting their events!

Additionally, the industry looks towards the future, with Horecava aiming to inspire. And the Hotel bars are getting ready for HotelNacht, with many fun events throughout Amsterdam that night. Listed are all events as they are known to us for the discerning drinker.

In case we missed any events you deem necessary to include, please make sure to tell us: timojanse@me.com.
