Conde Nast Traveler names Sugar Top 10 Rooftop Bar in America
We are excited to share that for the second consecutive year, Sugar has been named as the #1 Rooftop Bar in the US by Conde Nast Traveler. Initially featured on last year’s list, Sugar is one of the few venues to remain on the list that has been updated for 2017. With sweeping views of Biscayne Bay, Brickell, and Downtown Miami, Sugar remains a staple in the Miami nightlife scene. Whether guests are looking to unwind after work, gather before a night out, or dance and celebrate into the late-night hours, Sugar embodies a unique mix of food, drink, and location to consistently stand out as a popular spot in Brickell, Miami’s financial district.
As Conde Nast Traveler describes, “A highlight of downtown Miami’s futuristic transformation is this hyper-cool, sky-scraping rooftop bar that crowns East, Miami, an Asian-influenced hotel that’s part of the billion-dollar Brickell City Centre complex. Take in 270-degree views of the Magic City’s growing skyline from 40 floors up while sitting in a Southeast Asian jungle setting, sipping cocktails that match the wild motif.”
Sugar offers a variety of entertainment, including a rotation of live DJ performances on Friday and Saturday nights featuring up-and-coming as well as established Miami musical talent. New culinary programming is also underway, such as limited time offers as Sake Lab, a tasting menu of signature Sugar menu items paired with crisp and fragrant sake.
When you enter the lobby of EAST, Miami, you’ll likely find there is a wait to go up to Sugar. No need to worry! Relax in the lobby bar Domain, which also features live DJs, and sip signature cocktails such as the East of Miami, which is a green tea and ginger concoction, or the Chili Parador, which is a spicy tequila based cocktail topped with red pepper. After a few drinks, head to the elevator for your starlight ride to the 40th floor. The elevators are always a perfect selfie moment, so be sure to have your phone handy to document the trip and share your images on social media using #atEAST.
