My name is Jackson Dubois.

Hi. My name is Jackson. Jackson Dubois. Winemaker, cosmopolitan and world traveller. Nice to meet you! This is my restaurant and bar. The place where I serve traditional dishes and latest food trends from all around the globe. From a great New York burger to a vegan Buddha Bowl. I’ve travelled the world, you know. Seen and tasted a lot. And I felt like sharing my most delicious stories with others. Here. In the heart of Amsterdam.

During the day this place is called Cafe Esprit. But from 6:00 pm, I’ll be serving all kinds of dishes accompanied by craft beers and wines. Yeah, you can take the man out of the winery, but you can’t take the winery out of the man. I’m such a fanatic, my bartenders even turned my favorite beers and wines into beertails and – still excited! – grapetails.

Although it’s my bar – it’s even named after me – I won’t be there every week. If you want to meet me, book a ticket to Russia, drive to my winery in Reims or visit me in Munich in October. I will be somewhere in a diferent time zone. In a search for new flavors to bring to Amsterdam.

My story


Eat. Meet. Drink.

My love for beer and champagne is huge. As son of a winegrower in Reims, I developed a great interest in anything related to the sparkling wine at young age. During my trip around the world I met my second love: beer. I have tasted hundreds of brewages, perhaps even thousands, varying from the concoctions of local witch doctors to some of the most famous local beverages. In my bar you can enjoy a wide selection of craft beers and champagnes, both by the glass and bottle. From known wineries from my homeland to beers from foreign soil.

You can also have a snack or dinner in my bar; on the menu you’ll find my favourite dishes from all over the world. Delicious as a snack at the bar, or for an extensive dinner. Next to some traditional dishes such as the Big Boy’s Burger and an Indonesian Rice Table, a have a special section with Raw & Vegan dishes on the menu. To boost your energy levels, to reset your mind, to stimulate your wanderlust.
