It's a hard decision to make after dinner, do we get dessert or drinks? Do we hit up a yummy bakery or go to a bar? It can be tough to choose, but if you're in Houston, you don't have to pick between either anymore because this local Houston bakery just opened up a brand new cocktail bar hidden behind their store!
SWEET is a good go-to for yummy desserts like macaroons, cupcakes, cakes, donuts, cookies, and is the front-facing cover of the Sugar Room, the new hidden bar.
To find the new bar, you must walk through Sweet, then through a door that takes you to a back hallway. Take a left and head through the next door. There you will find the entrance into the hidden bar.
As far as covers go, a bakery full of delicious treats is about as good as it gets. It allows visitors to buy a cupcake or a dozen and then walk behind to the back door and order a delicious colorful drink.
The Sugar Room is partnered with Tout Suite bakery, which is already an established favorite in Houston. The Sugar Room's tasty cover is going to be dishing out more of their mouthwatering baked goods for all guests.
The bakery is cute and airy but the bar is in stark contrast. The bar gives regal vibes with fancy velvet furniture and high-end cocktails made with high-quality ingredients.
It's a stereotypical speakeasy but with a colorful candy-esque twist with pinks, greens, and blues everywhere.
This isn't the first secret bar in Houston, there's a concert venue that sells massive margaritas that's hidden behind a red door that's been around for a long time. But this is the first one to operate from behind a bakery!
The drink menu is full of classic cocktails with a twist, like a pretty pink drink that comes garnished with pink rock candy.
To get into this new bar, you don't need a password or a secret knock but there are hidden bars in Texas that still require passwords to get in, especially in Austin.
They just had their soft opening this past week but luckily you don't have to wait long to visit and try their drinks because they're opening full-time today and will be open seven days a week from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
The Sugar Room
Address: 5120 Washington Ave., Houston, Tx
Why you need to go: To drink creative, candy-inspired drinks hidden behind a yummy bakery and maybe grab a donut or two on your way out!
