Famous Essex nightclub Sugar Hut has relaunched after being bought by the team behind Studio 338 in south east London.
The venue boasts a number of new exterior and interior features. The central cobbled courtyard has been given a new floor and the indoor space has been fitted with new lighting, screens, infrastructure and sound systems from Void.
Sugar Hut’s fresh interiors “combine heritage luxe with playful eccentric English glamour” to fit with the aesthetic of the historic listed building.
Key features include a new bar decorated with silver leaf-covered wheat and flowers with ice-blue back lighting, gold velvet banquette seating and a ceiling in the main bar and dance floor that is adorned with red roses.
The bathrooms have also been given a “Instagrammable makeover” with gold swan taps and basins topped with resin covered swirls of gold, pink and purple in hand-painted designs.
A dedicated gender-neutral powder room and dressing area complete with vanity areas, full-length mirrors and lounge seating gives party goers the chance to mingle while they touch up hair or makeup.
Events director Dan Perrin plans to “bring the best of Ibiza to Essex” with parties coming up from the likes of Red Bull, Sankeys, Zoo Project, Café Mambo and Hot Bed.
The sold-out opening party at the end of 2019 showcased an international line-up of world-class DJs, including Sunship and Groove Chronicles, female Dutch DJ Chelina Manuhutu and former Ibiza star Brandon Block.
