Sugar Factory American Brasserie with its candy shop, restaurant, and goblet bar makes the move to Harmon Corner, opening today in the former Twin Peaks spot. The new location features three floors of indoor and patio seating along with a rock climbing wall made with candy dot holds. Customers can access a walk-up goblet bar from the pedestrian bridge on Las Vegas Boulevard and Harmon Avenue for drinks on the go.

This place is massive, spread over 14,000 square feet with 230 seats. At the entrance, the restaurant offers a bar with 36 seats, another 30-seat bar outfitted with a carousel on the mezzanine level, and a patio with 30 seats and fire pits that looks out on the Las Vegas Strip. Customers can head up to the third floor for the restaurant’s dining room filled with red velvet booths and chairs, that rock climbing wall, and the candy store with its 500 types of candy. Sugar Factory stays true to its name with two glass cases filled with homemade ice cream and gelato, milkshakes, pastries, and coffees.

Over the years, Sugar Factory teamed up with a roster of celebrities, and this location is no different. Hip hop artist 50 Cent launches a candy shop goblet on Friday, September 3, while reality television personality Scott Disick from Keeping Up with the Kardashians makes an appearance on September 18, followed by a night with Jersey Shore’s DJ Pauly D on September 19. Customers can feel like a celebrity in front of the restaurant’s life-sized flower wall with neon artwork along the gold staircase or a 25-foot 3D candy heart wall with sayings such as “Viva Las Vegas,” “Vegas Baby,” and “soulmate” on the exterior of the first floor.

While sugary treats are the calling cards of Sugar Factory, the location also offers a menu of steak frites, pan-roasted salmon, chicken and waffles, and sandwiches and burgers such as a sourdough lobster club and a California veggie burger. Pastas span shrimp Alfredo with penne and spaghetti marinara to a roasted lobster mac and cheese for two for $150.

But obviously desserts take center stage. Towering insane milkshakes in seven flavors offer Nutella banana, Cookie Monster, spiked S’mores, and more. Sundaes built for two offer renditions in strawberry cheesecake, chocolate blackout, and a banana split. That King Kong sundae for $99 features 24 scoops of ice cream covered in chocolate, caramel, and strawberry, and then smothered in even more sugar — chocolate chip cookies, a cupcake, gummy bears, candy necklaces, and more.

Each of the oversized smoking candy goblets seem to have a celebrity attached to it. The watermelon mojito uses Pitbull’s Voli 305 vodka. Bruno Mars approved the watermelon piña colada, while the Nick Jonas and John Varvatos-approved strawberry Cadillac reposado margarita comes with Villa One Tequila. Many of the goblets even come in non-alcoholic versions.

Sugar Factory says its the goblet bar and candy shop at its Fashion Show location will stay open for another month.
