Speakeasy
Sugar East came to life from the vision of Public Agenda as a sleek, midcentury styled upscale lounge that transports guests to another era, reminiscent of a NYC Speakeasy. A secret upscale bar located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Sugar East offers fresh sourced cocktail and menu ingredients, music playing through the early morning hours, and legal indoor smoking. Every element is a modern adaptation of classic design, based on Sugar East’s four pillars: escape, style, luxury and play.

I made a reservation for Saturday night and service was incredible. Service was outstanding. The hostess gave us our choice of seating styles, and checked in a few time. The wait staff was on top of things, always making sure we had everything we needed. The drinks were delicious and they brought out a fun sparkler for the birthday girl. I will absolutely go back and recommend to anyone to try.

The place is RIDICULOUSLY loud. I like energy, but this is comically distracting.

They allowed smoking which took away from the experience. Didn’t have any food.

I came here to celebrate New Years Eve early with my bestie and it was amazing. Drinks are strong but tasty. I had the Coconut drink which was aesthetically nice but I did not like it. Good flavor and aroma but just not for me. I also had the Guava which was nice but not as much Guava as I would like; similar to a Guava margarita. Still enjoyed the Guava drink. My favorite was the strawberry drink was sweet and smooth. Music is amazing because you get a little of EVERYTHING, from prince to biggie to the Aaliyah. Service by Helena and Vilma was amazing !!
