When Absinthe was packed on Saturday night, we decided to cross the street and have a cocktail at Sugar Lounge.
Here's the deal - the cocktails weren't fantastic ot even really very good. Unbalanced, expensive and the bartender had just a hint of attitude that a new space like this just can't afford to have.
The free appetizers (a crudite plate, tostito chips, salsa, chopped pepper jack and canadian bacon) were not only uninspired, but presented without any serving utensils.
The space was nice and lounge-y, though two others in my party noted it smelled a little like cleaning fluid.
I won't return here when Sauce and Absinthe are cheaper, more friendly and build a better cocktail.
