Welcome to


DOT is a multifunctional, creative (meeting) place in Groningen, located in the pleasant Ebbingekwartier.
DOT is open 7 days a week.


Our spacious gastrobar is a wonderful place suitable for coffee, tea, lunch, a drink or dinner. See how our chef prepares the dishes in the charcoal-fired Josper grill and listen to background music from our DJs or live musicians.

On the first floor, the foyer (with its own bar) is ideal for private events, lectures, meetings and other types of meetings, varying from 10 to 250 people.

On the second floor is the beautiful Dome, a breathtaking film and theater hall, decorated with 234 luxurious chairs. Weekly films and planetarium performances are programmed, both in 2D and 3D. The Dome also offers space for speakers, symposiums, theater performances and bands. The room is equipped with a high tech 3D digital sound system (60 speakers and 4 subwoofers) and has a RGB programmable lighting system.

Depending on the setup, the maximum capacity of DOT is 650 persons. The attractive outdoor terrace offers another 200 additional guests. In the summer months, adjacent to DOT, the attractive city beach of Groningen, named by Lonely Planet, rises.
