Café De Dokter was first opened on 2nd September 1798 by a surgeon at the nearby Binnengasthuis hospital and understandably was patronised by doctors and medical students, hence 'The Doctor' name. This this traditional old Dutch pub (Bruine café) has changed little since. Even the dust appears original. De Dokter remains in the surgeon's family and Jannie and Jan Beems have run De Dokter for the last 40years.
De Dokter is the smallest pub in Amsterdam, measuring just 18 square meters and retains its original bar and appearance and with mellow background jazz always has a friendly relaxed atmosphere.
The drink of choice here is Brand beer from the Limburg Brewery accompanied by a glass of genever or one of the wide range of whiskies stocked. (Look out for the 'whisky of the month' at €4.50. With your drink order a plate of cheese or a tasty smoked beef sausage served with Amsterdam pickles.
The spiral staircase in the back right corner leads up to the toilet. Take the wrong door and you're find yourself in the owners apartment.
