Sportsbar de groote griet

"Groote Griet ben ik gehieten,
Om wijd en weer kon ik wel schieten,
Ik kreeg een kogel in mijn mond,
Ik schoot hem door de Haarder toren,
En toen nog zeven voet in de grond."

This poem is written by the people of Groningen in 1672 after the victory over Bommen Berend, the Bishop of Munster. The Groote Griet opened its doors in 1976 and has been a fixture on the Grote Markt ever since. The property has known a myriad of faces but has always exuded the traditional pub vibe. The interior has not changed much over the years, and the many bar signs and advertising displays attest to this history. Basically, the pub could be compared to a woman covered in tattoos!

Do you want to have drinks in Groningen's most welcoming stadium? The passion for sports is totally apparent as you walk across the Grote Markt toward the yellow awning. A friendly chat at the bar and always the chance to watch your favourite sports on the large tv screens. The history of the cannon after which De Groote Griet gets its name lives on in the walls of this atmospheric sports bar.

Looking for great food on a small budget? At Sportsbar de Groote Griet and Café Hoppe you've come to the right place! Seven days a week you can join us for the Stadshap, the menu can be found here.
