clientele

very good looking and completely mashed because, well, this is amsterdam.

interior

the main attraction is definitely the performer, not thephysical space. however, all the basics are more than adequately coveredwith a long, well-staffed bar, large projection screens and a knockingsound system. owing to the building's theatrical heritage

in the interest of full disclosure, i will begin this review with a caveat: i have only been to the sugar factory once in my life and it just so happened on this very same night the infallible richard dorfmeister was spinning; frankly, i would most likely give your grandmother's basement rave reviews if dr. richard were on the decks strictly off of principle. with that said, sugar factory is indeed a worthy establishment in its own right. initially a theater, the space waseventually revamped and turned into club amuse, which recently gave way to the sugar factory - a multi-purpose venue apparently spawned out of an admiration for the surrealist manifesto and devoted to all things performance in the form of art, music and theater.
