Celebrities were spotted in the opening of the new and trendy restaurant called Sugar Factory according to a Dallas Observer article from November 10 which says,
“Sugar Factory opened in Uptown this past Friday with a kaleidoscope of theatrics in a made-for-Instagram space serving over-the-top food and drinks.
The Sugar Factory American Brasserie is a candy store, bar and restaurant with a DJ stage in the middle. There are more than a dozen locations around the world including Atlanta, Paris, New York, Las Vegas, Miami, Chicago and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.”
Aside from its grand name and theatrics, the design of the restaurant is also kept with a luxurious touch for the guests to feel the luxury candy vibe according to a CultureMap Dallas article from November 5 where they say,
“The Dallas location features a main dining area with 200 seats, plus colored flower walls perfect for posing, and an elaborate 3D floral ceiling.
A private dining room is available for parties of up to 66 people. The bar has 20 seats and 40 high-top tables, with full menu service available. An indoor-outdoor lounge has fire pits and retractable storefront windows.
The retail store is off the dining room, reachable through a display of candy hearts, which contains more than 50 types of sweets on a floor-to-ceiling candy wall.”
While the Sugar Factory offers burgers, pizzas and what nots, it lives up to its name as it also includes food for those who have a sweet tooth according to a Dallas Morning News article from November 9 which reports,
“The menu starts small, with traditional milkshakes, $12 to $14, in flavors like vanilla, strawberry and Butterfinger. Then there are the “insane milkshakes,” a calorie bomb of ice creams, whipped creams, sprinkles, cheesecake, candy and more.
The Princess Make-a-Wish shake, $21, is a birthday girl’s dream, with vanilla ice cream, marshmallows, a white-chocolate Kit Kat, a pink cupcake and a birthday candle.
The restaurant sells one boozy milkshake, for $33. The Campfire Spiked S’mores Milkshake is jazzed up with toasted marshmallow whiskey, espresso, two flavors of ice cream and a seven layer s’mores cookie. Better get a photo of that one.
But you came all the way here, and calories don’t count when there’s fire and booze, which is why I expect the $99 King Kong Sundae to get ordered more than it probably should. This is a bowl — no, more like a basin — with 12 to 24 scoops of ice cream and nearly every sweet thing imaginable on top. Among the candy necklaces, crushed Oreos, sprinkles and waffle cones are several sparklers, lit and carried through the dining room as if the customer were ordering bottle service.
The Sugar Factory is located at 1900 Cedar Springs Road and they are ready to welcome you with a blast of theatrics and sweets that will make your experience go over the top.
