Vesper touts itself as a 'Bond-themed cocktail bar', but don’t let that put you off; there’s nothing dated about this small, convivial bar on the corner of Vinkenstraat and Binnen Oranjestraat. The mixology is seriously considered and playfully accomplished; the friendly, approachable bartenders know that they are the experts so you don’t have to be. Well-crafted menus change monthly. Past innovations have included edible garnish pairings, rum-inspired spicy winter warmers and a sustainable living collaborative project with some of the most popular bartenders across Amsterdam. Menus are rooted in seasons and the whole operation is described as 'consciously sustainable', which might sound like something Gwyneth would say, but don’t panic. This is the language of the self-aware hipster. The good kind. This, my friend, is Vesperian.
