It’s cold, it’s raining, and the sun goes down at four in the afternoon. How do Amsterdammers manage to survive the winter? Sure, they’ve got ice-skating and pea soup, but really, we think their secret lies in the city’s ultra-cozy bars..

Here, we’ve picked our six favourite spots to cuddle up and share a drink with friends during those long winter nights. These bars have elevated gezelligheid – the Dutch national philosophy of coziness and comfort – to an art form.

For intrepid travelers, sightseeing doesn’t stop at sundown. Oftentimes, however, even the best guidebooks fall flat when it comes to bars, clubs and general nighttime adventuring. Especially in ever-changing cities like Amsterdam, Berlin and London, hotspots come and go, while the truly epic parties are usually one-off events. To top that off, solo travelers often wind up heading back to the hotel earlier than they’d hoped. A new app, Party with a Local, aims to solve the perennial problem of the party-starved traveler by hooking up visitors with likeminded locals. Rather than frantically searching event listings – or just giving up entirely – Party with a Local makes it easy to meet new friends and experience parts of a city you’d never see on your own.
