Cafe ZILT is a small and intimate bar on the Zeedijk, in the heart of Amsterdam. ZILT likes fine flavors and likes them in abundance. They try to express this in a large range of choice, but also in quality and personal service.

ZILT is a whisky cafe: they have a growing selection of single malt whisky, whiskey and bourbon. Last count added up to 106 brands! Café ZILT also organizes nosing and tasting sessions on a regular basis. During these special events, an assortment of whiskies is served accompanied by cheese, bread, dates, salmon, cured meat and chocolate.Michael whisky They are eager to share their love, knowledge and enthusiasm for these wonderful products.

ZILT is also a beer cafe: Of the (approximately) 50 beers they stock they always have twelve on draught. This cafe does not play by any set of rules. Blond, dark, sweet, bitter, local, European, American; anything goes.

The music we play matches our assortment of drinks: the best music in town. No disco, bubblegum, R&B and greasy kids stuff . We like to think of ourselves as an ‘orphanage of hits’. We organize quizzes, theme nights and host beer and whisky nosing and tastings on appointment. ZILT has a free WiFi connection. Ask for the code at the bar. Come one, come all. Taste and enjoy.
