“The other best bar in Groningen for drinks is surely De Pintelier, which was not only voted best bar of the city but also the second best bar of the Netherlands. It features a wide selection of Belgian beers (I grudgingly admit their superiority) and is absolutely wonderful for atmosphere. Of course, being that famous, it’s often incredibly crowded. If you should go here and it’s full, you’ll be happy to know that the other bars close by are good as well.”

“Feel Good is een van de leukste healthy hotspots van Groningen. Het personeel is erg lief, en het eten is geweldig! De ingrediënten zijn super vers en er worden alleen maar pure producten gebruikt. Er staan sapjes, salades en broodjes op de kaart. Je kan er ontbijten en lunchen. Open van 10-19h.”
