Sugar Factory

Sugar Factory is, in fact, a “family-friendly” spot. It’s a healthy mix of over-the-top bubbling boozy drinks with colossal burgers and ginormous milkshakes. There are kids dancing in front of the DJ stage alongside groups of adults enjoying a night out, some dressed to the nines, some more casually. There are 49 cocktails on the drink menu, many served in goblets with several straws ($39). For example, the Classic Watermelon Pina Colada is made with SelvaRey white rum, coconut rum, fresh pineapple, coconut and watermelon topped with a mountain of tropical gummy flamingos and flip flops, and according to the menu “Designed and tasted by Bruno Mars!” There are other drinks by PitBull, Dwayne The Rock” Johnson and Kendall Jenner. The World Famous King Kong Sundae is $99 and serves 12 people. It has 24 scoops of ice cream, chocolate, caramel, bananas, marshmallows, chocolate chip cookies, a doughnut, red velvet cupcake and about seven other things. There are burgers, sandwiches and pastas on the menu too. The Flaming-Hot Cheeto-crusted Monterrey Jack cheese is great.
This is a two-handed milkshake.
