Descent the stairs from Hotel New York

Best Bartender of the Netherlands

Daryl Lieuw-On work at NY Basement. He is the best bartender in the Netherlands. Daryl impressed the jury with his signature cocktail. A drink with rum, Angostura bitter, lime juice and grapefruit juice.


Elegant and adventurous. The mysterious colours of our cocktails conceal surprising flavours. Build, stir, shake or blend – the art of the perfect cocktail depends on very specific methods. Depending on the drinks and other ingredients used, a cocktail is gently poured or stirred, or firmly shaken or blended. Our bartenders have mastered all techniques.
