'A cutting edge muli-disciplinary nigh theatre'...whatever that is?
Amsterdam's Nachttheatre Sugar Factory is a night hot spot that is attracting a lot of attention and is a place where performance meets clubbing. No two nights at the club are the same and every night brings some type of show, be it a photo extravanganza, dancers, MCs, DJ's or actors mixing with the crowds. Whatever the show, whatever the night, you're guaranteed a wild time that can only be expected in the Netherland capital!
Located near Leidse plein, the heart and soul of Amsterdam's night life, Sugar Factory was founded by two well-known characters from the Dutch clubbing scene and is a local secret that attracts lovers of art, music, dancing and just a bloody good time. The program is constantly changing as the owners are always thinking up new ways to inspire and excite partygoers, but here's just a taster of what you can expect from just some of the nights.
Monthly DJ DiscoCult Evening
Hosted every second Friday of the month, this dance night is organised by four famous peronalities - two DJ's, a VJ/photographer/artist and a host. The night doesn't kick off till 11pm and offers a chance to experience disco meets cult, through its rebellious tracks and avantguard music style. Intrigued? Get there!
Wicked Jazz Sounds Club Night
Each Sunday, Sugar Factory hosts Wicked Jazz Sounds, which is an Amsterdam based platform for music where jazz meets dance. This party group comes in the form of a live band that perform at clubs and festivals, producing their own songs and also remixing some well-known classic. Their set at Sugar Factory is definitely worth a listen and dance to, though, this night has been running for five years and is usually sold out so you'll need to get in quick!
A new addition to the program, The Womb is a night that offers an intimate deep and soulful party with the finest selection of Boogie,House & Disco music. This night is brought to you by Amsterdam's own Kid Sublime and Wouda (Dopeness Galore) so you'll get a real taste for the Dutch nightlife and music scene.
Monthly Vreemed ('weird') Nights
Each month the club hosts a crazy, almost secret night where you must expect the unexpected! The full details are never given away but in the past it has included DJ's stepping beyond the usual gender boundaries and a wildly interactive, audio-visual exerience designed to entice all senses.
The Sugar Factory is a place where music is more then just music and is a night spot for expression, experimentation and utter randomness. It offers a chance to see acts across a range of different mediums as well as the opportunity to see some seriously cool people from Amsterdam's clubbing and music scene. Don't just take our word for it, get yourself over there!
Drinks are very reasonably priced at the club and the entrance fees usually range from €5 in the week to €15 on weekends. Most nights usually include an ealy show of theathre, live music, cabaret and poetry, as well as a late show with DJ's, dancing and sheer madness. Check out; sugarfactory.nl for more info. Most of the website is in Dutch but you'll get the jist of what to expect.
