To dinner in Groningen

Going shopping in town and afterwards, out to dinner in Groningen? The city of the Martini tower, Groningen, has everything to offer, one can expect from a provincial capital. At walking distance of the restaurant there are several options for a successful day or night out in Groningen.

You can think of the Groninger Museum, the cartoon museum, the cinema or the theatre. For a panoramic view of the city, climbing the well-known Martini tower is a must. End the day with a dinner at Humphrey’s located on one of the best known squares of this city.

Groningen has lively cultural life. Besides the known establishments, such as the ‘Stadsschouwburg’ on the Turfsingel, cultural centre ‘De Oosterpoort’ on the Trompsingel (home basis of the ‘Noord Nederlands’ Orchestra), Vera on the Oosterstraat, Grand Theatre on the Grote Markt and Simplon on the Boterdiep, there is a lively pub circuit where at least once a week live music is performed. Groningen is one of the few large cities that has a true underground scene. The ‘Noord Nederlands Toneel Theatre’ has ‘De Machinefabriek’ on the Bloemstraat as its home base. The ‘VRIJDAG’ theatre is a very important amateur podium on the Noorderbuitensingel. For large productions the ‘Martiniplaza’ opened a new hall a few years ago.

The nightlife has many pubs, especially around the Grote Markt, Vismarkt, the Poelestraat, Peperstraat and the Kromme Elleboog.
