Visited to attend 2 gigs. The set up was excellent. Great accoustics and lighting. Quite small giving a personal feel to a gig. It's up there with other great venues such as Ifor Bach in Cardiff.

Cosy and still quite big. Good logistics. Sound is also ok. Beer selection is missing local beers. Easy to reach

We went here a month ago to Cam in the Sugar Factory. The Sugar Factory is part of the Melkweg. Cam's show was in the small room downstairs, it was perfect, she gave a good show, sound and light were fantastic.

Lively spacious club, where you can get your vibe on as the music is pumping, good atmosphere, people just enjoying the hip hop and other music flavours. Saturday I’d hip hop night. Lots of dus on rotation. Good age spread here......

Went to see Fokofpolisiekar in August and Melkweg delivered in heaps on a first time visit.

Went to watch Fokofpolisiekar on Friday 24/8. Online booking of tickets was a breeze, although the one month membership is a weird charge. Close enough to public transport ant lots of hotels and hostels. Getting in the door, coat storage and bar was very efficient....More
