This is the story of Mr. Smith, and how he came to open a speakeasy in Maastricht. Born on a farm in Shropshire, he spent his youth immersed in tales of great travelers from the likes of Robert Louise Stevenson and Jonathan Swift. A chance encounter with an eccentric tea importer led to the first of many great adventures. By the age of 25, Mr. Smith had visited four continents, encountering people from all walks of life. He possessed that rare ability to blend in with any crowd, yet stick out as a man of distinction and grace. A mere inquisitive look could be enough to draw the deepest secrets from recent acquaintances, yet his non-judgmental manner always inspired the utmost confidence in his discretion.

From sipping single malt with

shepherds on Shetland,

to introducing the Mojito

to Maharajas, Mr. Smith felt

comfortable in any company.

Mr. Smith could earnestly claim to have seen it all. But he knew that further adventures await, and so he came to Maastricht. Now it’s your turn to share your stories with Mr. Smith, in the crossroads of Europe, a place continuously inhabited since the Roman Empire. The speakeasy, located in a cozy cellar in Wijk, is at once exclusive and inviting. It embodies the qualities he values most highly: intrigue, discretion, and above all, a good story over a strong drink. The bartenders strive to convey this story for each guest through finely and thoughtfully crafted cocktails. Each drink evokes an episode of Mr. Smith’s enchanted and globetrotting life. These creations aim to tantalize and surprise your senses, fostering a spirit of comfort and ease for your party.
