Essen's city centre has been boasting an outstanding attraction since 1996: The GOP Varieté-Theater Essen opened its doors in a historic cinema and is still a crowd-pleaser in the region today. Breathtaking acrobatic shows, jugglers, magicians and artists provide for excitement and an unforgettable evening. Enjoy a delicious dinner and cool drinks right at the table in the typical ambience of a variety show and be impressed by internationally renowned artists and talented newcomers. Every two months the programme changes and offers you new spectacular shows and changing themes. Sometimes the focus is on humour and comedy, sometimes everything revolves around electronic music, French charm, rapid moves or the world of beauty.
Enjoyment and entertainment in a unique atmosphere
An unforgettable evening depends not least on the atmosphere. With its dark woods, warm colours and surprising details, the former cinema hall is perfect for a stylish evening full of surprises. And before the show, go to the restaurant at the GOP Varieté-Theater for a delicious dinner or to the bar for a cool drink. The restaurant Leander invites you to culinary delights made with passion: Carefully arranged menus with sophisticated combinations, exclusive cocktails or a glass of sparkling wine will prepare you for an enjoyable evening before the show starts. The GOP Varieté-Theater Essen is also an excellent site for company parties, Christmas parties and special occasions.
