The Amsterdam Bar

831 Exposition Ave.
Dallas, TX 75226-1743
Best Of


  • Daily 2:30pm-2am
  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining
The Amsterdam Bar is by far one of the coolest bars in town. It's set up like a European-style bar, with a heavy German and Belgian beer menu. There is vintage fat-tire bicycle that hangs above the entrance. The huge backyard is perfect to sit out and catch the occasional band on warm summer nights.
