Let's shake things up: 10x Cocktail bars
People in Eindhoven sure do love a drink, especially beers but we're not averse to a cocktail either. From margaritas to mojitos and everything in between, the following cocktail bars have it all. Cheers!
You may have heard of Kola. Jesse described him in his local guide as one of the best cocktail shakers in Eindhoven. That deserves a permanent spot, and it's called The Revellers located at Stratumseind. Here, you entertain yourself as a real reveller would: lively and with lots of noise. Enjoy!
Another great place at Strijp-S is De Huiskamer. Officially not a cocktail bar, but they're great at shaking things up. Attention to the interior is in order here: a mishmash of vintage pieces without being reminiscent of your grandmother's decoration. Just cozy vibes. We can't give away anything about the cocktails on the menu, so find out for yourself!
The Cocktail Bar @Het Oliehuisje
On the always bustling Ketelhuisplein, you will find Het Oliehuisje. Here you could (for example, when it was too busy at neighbor 't Ketelhuis) order a drink to enjoy on the terrace. Exclusively with good weather. Now they have converted this cozy place into The Cocktail Bar, perhaps the town's smallest (!) bar. For cocktails, fun, and the occasional special tasting evening, Strijp-S is the place to be.
We start with the place for cocktails in the city center: VANE. Shaken or stirred, whichever way you drink your cocktail, the bartenders here know how to mix. Previously, this was the home of the best female bartender in the world: Tess Posthumus. Her signature cocktails ‘Postduif’ and ‘Windhaan’ now have a special place on the menu next to the other unique and surprising cocktails. Combine your drink with bites and enjoy them both inside and outside on the terrace for a view of Eindhoven.
The Little One Bar
Not surprisingly, this bar is quite small. How small? Well, with 25 to 30 persons, you’re done. The Little One is not only popular because of its special interior or because it is one of the oldest buildings in the city, but also because a good time is guaranteed. They love to prepare one of the many tasty cocktails on the menu for you. A must-visit if you ask us.
You will find Bobby's Bar, formerly known as Berlin, on the Kleine Berg. At Bobby's Bar, you are at the right place if you love Gin & Tonic. With the very extensive offer on the menu, it becomes almost impossible to choose! Bobby's Bar also provides tastings, workshops, and special Gin & Tonic experiences. And a bonus! They now have two locations in Eindhoven.
Thomas is known as that tropical hotspot with pink accents. Besides enjoying the interior, you can a taste of some of the best cocktails here. ‘Cocktail boss' Sten gives classic drinks a tropical Thomas twist. No clue what to go for? Then opt for the High Cocktail (inspired by the popular high teas)! This way you'll get three different dishes including a cheeseboard.
Het Kleine Café
When you think of a brown café, you immediately think of the inseparable dark and smoky atmosphere that goes with it. That's a little different at het Kleine Café on the Wilhelminaplein. That’s why they label themselves as the modern version of it. They propagate this with three pages of cocktails including Gin & Tonics and a selection of Eindhoven Specials. Also for non-alcoholic enjoyment, they have plenty of choices!
A new concept from the owners of The Roast Club: Bar Republic on the Kleine Berg. And this 'bar without borders' is very promising. Go all out with their classic cocktails, or try something new; they've made you a selections of their favorites.
Fifth NRE is home to five different concepts, but The Bar is the place to go for cocktails. This place at the back of the building is specially designed to enjoy some drinks. An iconic spot for cocktails (they have a standard menu and signatures of the bartenders), high balls, and gin & tonic. Cheers!
