well it's a small place but don't worry you can find nice places to go out. news cafe is an elegant place to sit and drink your beer. three sisters is biggest place, but generally age average is a bit lower than expected. "place" is the only place you have to pay for enterance but it's free at every thursdays, student night. monday is sally obreins' day, you can find all exhanges upstairs. but after couple of weeks you may get bored as its cheap beer sucks. tuesday is the rest day, however, if you want to go out you can listen live regi music while drinking your beer. on wednesday, Pand48 is the place for international students. During happy hour, beer is 1Eu. Pand48 is a small but such a nice place to spend your wed. night. Shadrak is an another place you can visit on wed. Latin is dominating sound. on thursday, like saturday, city center is full of dutchs. Exchanges prefer MollyMalones due to cheap drinks but enzo is the best place to go. Friday is also a resting day, but if you fell like going out city is crowded enough. Saturday is main dutch day. Everywhere is dutch, try to interact with them. On sonday, city is dead.

There are plenty of nice cafes and pubs in Groningen! Sally O'Briens is a place to go for the exchange students on Mondays. Don't forget to check out De Spiegel and the little Irish Pub opposite the Casino is also definately worth a visit! Many pubs serve really nice (and cheap!) food, check out especially De Kleine Kasteleine and De Pakhuis. Lunch at the Newscafe is a must and don't forget the delicious cakes at Roroo's (both in the new buildings next to the Grotemarkt)... Newscafe also has the best hot chocolade of the town! Check out also the little cafe next to the Martini Church! In the summertime the terraces around Grotemarkt and Poolestraat are the places to go day and night, and don't forget to check out the lake near-by, where you can for example rent a rowing boat or try out sailing.

Night spots: "Molly Malone's", "The Palace" etc. Don't miss the open air market taking place at the Martini square. Do visit the many interesting museums of this small town, and of course climb to the top of the dominating Martini tower in the centre of the town, which was destroyed during the 2nd World war and totally rebuilt afterwards. The panoramic city view will reward you indeed! Give yourself a bike ride to the splendid countryside lying outside Groningen and discover the great landscape. Do visit the Royal Botanical Garden, just a few km outside the town. And if all this sounds too quiet or boring, trust me, the town's nightlife, sport activities and overall entertainment options will convince you it is not so.

Monday night 11-12pm: Happy Hour in Sally's o' brians Wednesday night (don't remember the time): The Storm (pretty wierd place but happy hour!) Apart than those places, Molly Mallone's (don't do anything illegal in the there, otherwise you won't be allowed to enter there anymore for the rest of the year, believe me! De Stadlander is good to start the even, as De Cafe Spieghel does. Drie Gezusters is not to be missed. events: well, don't miss Queen's day... and if you like live music, try to get organized to go to Pinkpop in the south of Holland (end may - beginning june)... It's perfect!

The nightlife in Groningen is really great. There's always a bar or club open until at least 6am every night of the week, even if they are a bit manky. The main places us international students tended to go included Sally's, Speigal, Rumba, Three Sisters, Palace and Negende Cirkle. Molly Mallones was also popular for a while, but watch out for the gorilla-like bouncers, they're twats. Generally, there's plenty of choice for all tastes. If you're still here in May, don't miss the Pink Pop festival in the south of the country, well worth it!

Groningen night is amazing, there is plenty to do and places to go at night. You can stay until 6 in the morning in Shadrack or in the Car. There are Jazz concerts in the Spieghel, in the Sol in Cantine.... Happy hour on Monday in Sally's, on Wednesday in the Storm and every night in the Blaw Angel. The Soldier to have a beer; Enzo to dance; gay pubs with house music; Molly Malone's on Thursday (happy hour), the Three sisters in Grote Mark (Dutch people; Samba....Lots of pubs...
