A word from Sugar Bar
We are talking sweet music, soul-stirring riffs, runs and melodies in a cozy environment, with delectable cuisine you can find only at Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar. Presenting a fresh alternative to the mundane, the Sugar Bar, is an intimate full service restaurant, showcasing local and international talent, from R&B/Soul, Jazz, and Caribbean to traditional African rhythms. Intimately immersed in big flavors, live performances, and our signature Sugartinis, an evening here might begin at the watering well where specialty cocktails and a selection of cultural appetizers set the mood and wet the appetite.

Diner Reviews
  • "Love this place and Wed's Open Mic Night is incredible!! So much talent in one room. The food is always fresh and yummy. This is Valerie Simpson's, of Ashford & Simpson fame, place and she's often in the house when we're there which is an honor. Looking forward to the show there on May 9th with the incomparable KATHY SLEDGE of SISTER SLEDGE fame."

  • "I live in The neighborhood and like to support businesses ... The ambiance is great and food is good.. However, I was quite surprised to be charged a $10 fee at the door for my dinner reservation. I thought it was clear on the open table site to check for show time prior to reservation as there would be an extra charge should you arrive during show time... My reservation was for 8pm. Show time is at 9pm... Conveniently, I was finally served at 9pm ... Soooo clearly, if they are going to charge a show fee, then they should state it in the fine print... As oppose to a surprise at the door...."

  • "I was disappointed by the menu since it was different than what was advertised on the website. I was looking forward to eating what was on the online menu. The way the seating was arranged was the worst in my opinion...tables were side by side so there wasnt really any way to have private conversation. I will not be visiting this restaurant again nor will i recommend it."

  • "The place is too small to have a so called entertainment section. You literally have to stand up and move the table if anyone seated next to you has to get up. Also, the show did not start on time yet the hostess kept harrassing my guests and I about the entertainment seating section coverage. In the end, it had to be refunded. The food is good and Chris the waiter has a great personality as does the manager. But I will not be returning nor do I recommend"

  • "It was my first time at the restraunt. I made a resevation to see the show. I was surprized to find that I was seated in the back room and would be watching the show on a TV screen and still had to pay 10.00 per person cover charge for it. I feel this is a poor practice. One does not get the excitment and energy of the show sitting in the back and watching it on a screen. I was truly disappointed. Aside from this. The food was good. The portion size was good. The service was good."
