Bubbles & Wines
Tucked away near the muddle of the tourist mania around Dam Square, on the narrow and winding Nes is a well-kept secret that most of the city’s visitors miss. The tightly-spaced, dark, slickly designed Bubbles & Wines is a grand spot to begin a night slowly, with a first glass of excellent wine and a little snack. It is, as the name suggests, all about the grape here, with the ‘by the glass’ selection almost as impressive as what can be ordered by the bottle. Those in search of a tasty fizz could do worse than an Australian Rose Brut (available by the bottle, glass or in a flight accompanied by two other sparkling whites) or the dessert-dry Ultra Brut Champagnes (available by the bottle only). The accompanying snacks are well chosen and of good quality, from Spanish Pata Negra ham to the best Dutch cheeses.
