For all those who have visited Las Vegas, you will no doubt agree with what I am about to say. Las Vegas is incredible!! For those who have yet to visit this Iconic city, let me enlighten you on a few restaurants that I have visited there. In particular, the Sugar Factory”. Yes the name invokes thoughts of mountains of sweet confection, but the delightful surprise is that this establishment triples as an extraordinary European style brassiere, imaginary sweet shop, and hip, trendy nightclub with a sinful chocolate lounge.
This was truly a fascinating experience for me and thanks to the special tour provided by general manager Mark Steele, I have now become an avid fan of the Sugar Factory.
I was in the mood for a light lunch and after hours of walking the strip, desperately needing to rest my weary bones; I ducked into an inviting bright and refreshing restaurant. The color scheme was crisp black and white dripping with crystal chandeliers that lent to the sense that you were dining a in an authentic corner bistro on the broad streets of the champ de ellsye in the heart of “Gay Parree”
Located next to the Paris hotel and casino complete with a huge working Eiffel tower and directly across the street from the famed Bellagio water fountain spectacle, this restaurant was ideal for meals and people watching. I started my lunch with a …..
One thing I noticed about the Sugar Factory is it’s extensive menu.
Breakfasts include an array of choices, such as omelets, frittatas, eggs benedict, Belgian waffles, French toasts, and Red Velvet Pancakes. Yummmm
Lunch & dinner ranges from savory and sweet crepes, soups & fresh salads, customized pizzas, burgers, pastas and grilled foods.
Desert is a kaleidoscope of tarts, sweet pizzas, European style pastries, fondues, and old-fashioned sundaes and shakes.
My tour started with the restaurant and moved into the sweet shop. There you will find celebrity couture lollipops, signature flavored lollipops with gem-encrusted sticks that can be swapped out when the candy is gone. Top celebrities the likes of Britney Spears & Kim Kardashian endorse each confection. The store is fanciful and fantastical, much like a visit down the rabbit hole of Alice in wonderland. The shelves are lined with mounds of gourmet cupcakes, sugary delights, sour puckers, and sweet éclairs.
Then just off the Sweet shop through velvety heavy drapes was the sultry, Chocolate Lounge. A room where you can sit and engaged in the most decadent of repasts, deep dark, chocolate overload. Amber muted lights give way to intimate seating lounges. Where you can dine on the elixir of the gods in the form of every type of chocolate morsel you can think of. Discreet bartenders are ready to serve, satiny drinks, brandy and Sherries. A perfect introduction to what the night may hold for you at The Chateau located upstairs on the roof of the restaurant.
This rooftop club, a hip and trendy hot spot in Las Vegas has incredible views of the nightlife of Vegas. As you retreat further into the club, you can gaze upon the throngs of people dancing to the pulsing beats of elite DJs perched atop of a massive marble fireplace.
With all the restaurants, bistros and cafes available in Las Vegas, it is hard to choose which one you should visit. I can certainly suggest to you that The Sugar Factory should be first on your list. Then go back again in the evening to work off the calories you put on earlier in the day.
