Mercer's first hotspot blog post is about a bar located in Amsterdam on the Singel 460. Apt is a bar that feels, and looks like a living room. The New York styled bar opened their doors in October 2015. It's located in the historic Odeon building. Enjoy a good whiskey, a unique and perfectly balanced cocktail, art and jazz. The homely bar, on the Singel 460 in Amsterdam, is open 7 days a week from 18h00 till late.
Apt, derived from the English apartment, feels just like home. The bar is divided in two areas, each with it's own character. The first space, 'The Copper Bar', is an ode to the craft, copper Elyx distilled Vodka. Here you can also see how they prepare your cocktail under the operation lamp. The second place, 'The Living Room', has it's little-too-comfortable sofas, wooden floors and large works of art, elements and details that are characteristic of a New York home.
The cocktail menu is a mix of well known oldies, often with a little twist, and some surprising new cocktails.
Not the walls, but the ceiling is covered in the living room with art. Unique works of young contemporary Dutch artists are exhibited here.
