Leidseplein, Amsterdam –
A successful alternative to the other clubs in Amsterdam, Sugar Factory is a unique venue that hosts a diverse and sometimes unusual roster of live musicians and performers that’s unlikely to be found anywhere else.
Though the club’s sparse décor consists primarily of bare black walls, long mirrors, and white-tiled floors, the warm neon lighting and action on the stage provide enough color and style to illuminate and energize the eclectic and well-dressed crowd on the dance floor.
A lounge to the side features retro rainbow-colored sofas surrounded by tall plants and candlelight that provide a quieter spot to take a breather and relax, though the lively, dance-happy patrons aren’t likely to leave the floor anytime soon.
With its packed performance schedule and easygoing atmosphere – even on techno nights – Sugar Factory is definitely a standout in the Leidseplein club scene.
A young and lighthearted tribe of city dwellers, students, and music lovers, 20s to 30s.
A mix of progressive sounds, dubstep, heavy bass, and Wicked Jazz. The resident sounds are a fusion of live vocals, jazz musicians, and an old-school hip-hop DJ. Check the website for a schedule of shows.
Cover charge averages €10. Beer €2.50, wine €3.30, mixed drinks €6.80.
Sundays are popular with locals, when local jazz and hip-hop musicians blend together for the Wicked Jazz Sounds club night. The evening grows in strength from 11pm right through to 5am.
