Holland – Dr. Rotterdam
Took the Euro-tunnel for a short break to Holland over Christmas. Arrived in Rotterdam mid afternoon. Stefan had organised a surprise for us so we had to be there for 7pm. When the time arrived he arranged a taxi to take us to the doctor. Located in an atmospheric townhouse, a one-time home to prostitutes and sailors and other ne’er do wells, and set in Rotterdam’s formerly notorious Scheepwartkwartier district, The Doctor is something of a cocktail specialist – one with an exquisite bedside manner. Knock on the door and ask for a patient number. Inside you’ll find a dimly lit doctor’s office, where the very best medication is available to those in need of healing: the drinks are beautifully executed, complex and layered creations. The atmosphere is relaxed and the bartenders are very well experienced. The cocktails are exemplary and the Doctor is itinerant so be sure to make an appointment.
