Volks Tip: Wicked Jazz Sounds


We ask our Volk to share their favourite Amsterdam spot. From brown bars to pumping parties, who knows what our eclectic mix of characters will recommend… This week: Our talented Barista Léon Weeda shares his favourite spot for dancing the night away: Wicked Jazz Sounds in Sugar Factory, Central Amsterdam. “A place where you can really dance.”


With a mix of DJ’s and live musicians playing Soul, Funk, Disco, Hip Hop and Jazz, Wicked Jazz Sounds is not like your usual Electro/Techno parties. This place makes you really want to move your feet. “I’m not really into Techno, for me, I just love to groove.”

Wicked Jazz Sounds is an Amsterdam based platform for music, bringing together Jazz and contemporary dance and creating a community of diverse people. Playing all over The Netherlands and at regular club nights, but best known for it’s Sunday night at Sugar Factory (where it is usually sold out).


Their mission is to bring together warm, nice and happy people and make them ‘dance with a smile’ to music that everyone is in love with. The combination of talent and ambition of this bunch of funky people promises good sounds. So go there and ‘dance with a smile’, who cares if it’s Sunday night.

Who’s Léon?
Léon is our talented Barista working in Werkplaats, known as ‘The CEO of Coffee’. His barista skills are impeccable, making patterns you couldn’t even draw and coffee you’re addicted to. You can find him with his timer adjusting the coffee machine. His humour and latte art skills brighten up your worst days – one day his bunny with sunglasses will be famous worldwide.

In between traveling, Léon started working in bars where he picked up the passion for making good coffee. He heard about Volkshotel and came to join the team: “It fits me well the open-minded, socialness and the room for individuality”. His gentle and humble persona makes you want to hug him, he is the brother/boyfriend you wished you had.

He will also be displaying his art in Werkplaats in July along with other creative colleagues. Come and check it out.
