Making a cocktail is about finding the right balance, just like life itself

Dear guests,

From 15 March till 28 April all drink and eat establishments in the Netherlands are closed to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus. We understand and respect this decision, although this situation has big implications for us and our staff. If you like to support us to sustain Labyrinth, we have gift vouchers available , these can be used when Labyrinth is open again. We are immensly grateful for any contribution. And know as well that we organise online #openmicmondays. See our agenda and facebook event page.

Bar Labyrinth is a home to the art of mixology — you’ll find it in the African-Caribbean soul food, the music, the cultivation of spoken word and poetry and most certainly in the cocktails. 

Labyrinth is initiated and hosted by Sam Kingue Ebelle. Born in Cameroon, having worked in some of the best bars worldwide, Sam is one of Amsterdam’s most gifted mixologists. This poet-turned-alchemist is responsible for cocktails that elevate the senses as well as the spirit. Inspired by the warmth of Mother Africa and the vibrancy of Afropolis, Bar Labyrinth prides itself to be based in the green heart of Amsterdam very close to the Vondelpark.

Is Labyrinth the place you would like to work? We are always interesed in staff. Get in touch with us if you have bar experience and want to explore the road to mixology or love to cook afro-caribbean soul food, or offer your friendly hospitality services to our guests.

We look forward welcoming you.
