With the lights turned low and an agreeable mix of hipsters, financiers and more than a handful of local debutantes, San Francisco’s first dessert lounge provides locals with a place to appreciate dessert, local art and fine beverage.
Imagine taking your favorite part of the meal as a child: Dessert! and pairing it with your favorite part of the meal as an adult: Cocktails!
As I sipped my Kir Royale and watched patrons order another round of voluptuous Sangria, we nibbled on shortbread cookies and realized that Candybar seems to have found a sweet combination.
Located in the Western Addition Neighborhood, Candybar is part lounge and part epicurean candy shop. They boast an international wine list, creative sparkling cocktails and Chef Cathleen Li serves a rotating collection of innovative desserts like Lavender Honey Crème Fraiche Semi Freddo, Peanut Butter Jelly Time! and an Ice Cream Sandwich that isn’t exactly old fashioned.
The lounge further encourages playtime with a selection of board games to enjoy while you tickle your sweet tooth from Battleship to Parcheesi, Candyland (of course) and an impressive collection of trivia decks.
Board games. Dessert. Drinks. Yes. To put it short and sweet this unique lounge is so easy to enjoy, it’s like giving candy to a baby.
