Sugarfactory in Amsterdam is a dynamic, open-minded and creative place where club, live music and theatre meet. The club regularly hosts local and international DJ heroes such as Andre Crom, Frankie Knuckles, Lunice and Black Coffee. Sugarfactory is also an upcoming stage for live music, offering the perfect venue for both small and intimate and larger-scaled gigs. The main venue - with its large stage and red velvet curtains - doubles as a great theatre location, boasting performances from The End Girls and comedian Greg Shapiro.Since the renewed small hall was opened in 2012 - a characteristic and intimate area alongside the main hall - Sugarfactory has been open 7 days a week, starting from early evening and stretching into the night. Inclusion of the extra stage, Sugarfactory serves as a popular springboard for upcoming talent, such as live bands, singer/songwriters and young organizations with remarkable initiatives.

The place very-very tiny and very expensive. The staff are extremely cheeky and aggressive. I am soooooo dissapointed!

Upon leaving the club circa 12am a bouncer with a beard grabbed a female by THE THROAT and threw her out of the club. He also ASSAULTED two other WOMEN. DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE TREATED LIKE A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN....More

Really tiny club with awful techno music with absolutely no lyrics. Hardly any room to move not because it was full but because the club was the size of a bathroom ! Not worth the money to get inside

No, most of the music is hip hop, funk, techno. Sometimes they have special event. Check the website from "wealllove", you can find where this kind of music will be played. Next Saturday will be at the Panama

We stayed in one of the many hotels in the city and found the trams the best way to get there and then used a taxi for around 25 euros
