About us

A safe space & community for followers of Drag!

Dorothy's is a warm and casual bar located in the centre of Groningen with a drag legacy. Previously The House of Scandal, the bar has been a central part of the gay community in Groningen for many years. Since handing over the reins from Mama Scandal, our goal has been to continue to deliver a relaxed and fun atmosphere,


 All our drinks are created using only the finest ingredients for the best flavour. We also pride ourselves on checking the pulse of our clientele, to ensure we recognise local customer desires.

All the best bars combine delicious drinks and a welcoming fun atmosphere, and we at Dorothys' take this very seriously. So, pop by, relax and enjoy a little slice of dragtastic joy under the rainbow.
