your new rooftop bar
The Happy View

Right in the heart of the city center in Groningen you will find the most beautiful, unique and cozy rooftop terrace of the world, at least according to us. Whenever the sun is out, we’ll be opened for anyone who is looking to bask in those rays of sunshine, and for those that want a lovely drink to accompany that sunshine.

Our rooftop is also an atmospheric location that gives you the opportunity to organize events, get-togethers or receptions. You’ll make the request, and we take care of the rest. As easy as it gets, right? Yeah that’s right, you’ll be overlooking the beautiful towers, and rooftops in the city center while basking in the last sunrays of the evening. What is not to love about that?
