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.

Lining up to get into this club was an experience I have never had before. When we arrived at the front of the line, the four security staff interrogated every person one-by-one. This of course is not usual for clubs but this group of security guards were particularly rude. The over-muscly bodyguards whose imperious attitude was mean and domineering, pat... More

If you happen to be in Amsterdam on a Sunday and love jazz you must come here. I can't speak for the other nights but the Sunday night we spent here exceeded any expectations. Came with friends and danced for the entire time. The jazz band were amazing, great beats and great atmosphere. Take coins, you will be charged for... More

This place came recommended to us from some locals, so we figured it would be a gem. Not so much. We visited a lot of bars and clubs during our stay in the city and quite frankly I was annoyed that we wasted our time on finding this place, waiting in a ridiculous line-up, paid a cover charge, only to...

This is a nightclub which varies from time to time, as each time, I have visited the venue, I had a totally different experience. Apart from Tuesday nights, when it is free entry, the prices at the door are relatively expensive. The staff are always friendly. The prices at the bar are quite steep, but you get a strong measure... More

My friend and I visited on a Saturday night and, after paying €13 to get in, we were shocked to learn we would have to pay a further €0.50 every time we wanted to use the bathroom. The music was typical electro/techno/house music, not our taste and very repetitive. The drinks were cheaper than in the bars we had visited... More

This is the first club we visited in amsterdam. As we stepped into the dance floor we were satisfied. The DJ mixed a well done electronic / progressive set of music, that keeps us moving. But it's more a underground club and not that fancy thing, that some others expect.

The crowd here is relatively young and immature, the music is pure techno Eurotrash - I've been in loads of terrible clubs but this ranks amongst the worst. Buying drinks will leave a dent in your pocket, and the toilets are amongst the most cramped I've experienced in a club. When collecting my coat at the end of the night,... More

Overpriced, small, bad music and rude staff. Have never been treated as badly anywhere in the Netherlands or Europe. Surrounded by way better places.

The music was s-hit (just commercial music that you can listen in every place), the taste of the beer was horrible (probably they serve it with low pressure and mixed with water or something). prices were too high (2,90 for a small glass of beer and 7,90 for a glass of vodka and coke). at least the wardrobe was for...
