Big fraud – I was embarrased when I arrived at Sugar. I planned a bachlorette party for a very chic crowd of girls. I don't live in the city so I had to use the wedsite as a reference big mistake. The site makes the lounge look glamorous but in the words of the bride to be "this place looks like a old man's basement". I payed a $250.00 drink fee for a reserved table and they stuck us in this little booth in the corner. The scene was so weak. Looked like a bunch of underaged,poorly dressed college kids standing around not knowing what to do. The music was lame. Come on its 2007 how about some cool acid jazz who wants to hear Like a Virgin again. Plus its totally in no mans land. I had a girl come from the upper westside and she felt like she was going to New Jersey. I give one good review on the mini hamburgers. Otherwize this place is a dump. No vibe no class no go!
Great Atmosphere – Celebrated my 30th birthday at Sugar this past weekend with about 20 friends - Everyone got in without any problems and no cover charge. We were able to get a table without a bottle requirement and those who wanted to dance really enjoyed the mix of music. It was a little bit bar, a little bit lounge, and a little bit dance club - perfect for my group. I really recommend this place if you are looking for a fun and easy place to plan a party
Fabulous Service! – I went out with some friends on Saturday night looking for a fun scene and definitely found it at Sugar. We had a great time and even though it was busy, the waitstaff was fast and friendly. The drinks were reasonably priced (anywhere from $6-10) and the musice was a great mix! I really enjoyed myself and hope to head back again soon for those White Cosmopolitans!
Leaves a bad taste in your mouth... – I planned a birthday party with a friend here for Saturday, December 9th, and spoke to the event planner, Kristen. We told her that we were expecting around 40 people, and she said there would be no problem for our guests to get in, they simply have to mention either of our names at the door. On the night of the event, I got there with my friend, and when we gave both of our names, they said neither of our names were on the list. I told them I spoke to Kristen and confirmed our plans with her. They told me she wasn't there, and that they had to go with what was on their list. They told us that our friends would have no trouble getting in until they reached their capacity, then our friends would have to wait. I told them I was expecting 40 people and that it was horrible management on their part to leave us hanging like that. The bouncer was really nice and assured me that my guests would be able to get in, but I was still upset and felt cheated. The website says that they make legendary birthday parties, and they obviously don't live up to their name. The music was good, but it was really crowded, and I don't understand why they would book a party for 40 people (and other parties on the same night), knowing how crowded it gets. The downstairs bartender was extremely rude, and when I questioned her about a drink, she responded by telling me, "Look, I'm not the one who's been drinking all night." I was lucky to have all my friends and because of them I had a good time, but Sugar definitely didn't give me a legendary birthday. If anything, I will always remember how horrible it was. So many nice places to have your birthday party or any other event in the city, no need to waste your time here.
Great hangout spot – They have games! Great music, great drinks - it's just a cool place to hangout. Me and my crew went and had a great time - just go and check it out and understand it's all about fun.
An amazing night! – I had my birthday party at Sugar last weekend after a couple of my friends recommended it to me. It really was a great time - very chill early in the evening and then started picking up right when we were ready to dance. I loved not having to worry about people getting in or paying a cover charge - Everything went so smoothly!
Great drinks and cool space – I had never heard of sugar til a friend of mine suggested we go. It was a great bar. Fantastic drink menu and great atmosphere to match. Hot employees and a really neat room downstairs to have private parties. I will definitely be back
Celebrating.. – Came here on a girl's night out to celebrate my friend's bday and was really pleased with this place. Soothing environment, good drinks and happy hour. A bit of a secluded place which made it even better since it wasn't uncomfortably packed. Had really tasty french martinis and as well as their desserts. Sat towards the back, staff really friendly and accomodating. The heat was really high but besides that we had a fun time there.
Very Accommodating, great customer service... would go back – We had a 30th B'day here on a Saturday night, and got great service before and during the party. This place is not pretentious, there is no waiting in lines, no cover and your not required to do bottle service. Everyone was let in without a problem. If you want to reserve a table you can simpley run a tab instead of the bottle service, and others can pay cash for there drinks through the bar or the wonderful waitress. Everything was made very easy. and the music was great. We went to the downstairs area for late night dancing!
Fun Party Place! – This place is really fun. The bartenders are fast and friendly as is the rest of the staff. The atmosphere is beautiful and the food/drinks are delicious. My friends and I have taken to visiting Sugar often on the weekends - we really feel comfortable and welcome there! It's nice to have a spot that you know will always be a good time.
