Since opening in Oct 2014, Soi 11's Sugar Club has been a solid fixture on the Bangkok hip-hop scene, nurturing the genre long before the arrival of Blaq Lyte.

They are now expanding with a second branch on Phuket's Bangla Road, just minutes' walk from Patong Beach.

In advance of their grand opening, they're already booking big names with American hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd announced for Jan 22, 2019.

The new club is set across three floors equipped with a massive LED screen for a Las Vegas-style experience.

Sticking to their signature style, the Phuket branch will focus purely on hip-hop, with promises of plenty of international artists lined up for the coming year.

Early bird tickets for the grand opening are B600 at Ticketmelon.
