Sugar – Hayes Valley
I don’t know what to think of Sugar. The size and layout give the impression of a dive bar, but the shiny new decor and crowd tell a different story; I’m just not sure what that story is. The atmosphere was kind of like a fancy waiting room of some sort, which I guess Sugar can be at times with crowded Absinthe right across the street.
The lighting is nice and rosy, perfect for a pre-dinner date drink if you’re already in the neighborhood. And if your date prefers froo froo drinks, you’ll be set as Sugar’s cocktail list certainly lives up to its name. The bar gets fairly loud and full most nights, so don’t expect to enjoy the comfy lounge seating unless you go at off hours.
