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

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.

From 4 april till 12 april Labyrinth has been taken over by guest bartender Karim Bouchta from Method-F. He made a special cocktail menu for this week, but the gin & tonics remain the same. Sam Kingue Ebelle is on a well deserved holiday.

We look forward to welcoming you.
