RockSugar: Spice Up Your Night


If you’re looking for a fun destination to mix it up with a big group in Los Angeles, RockSugar is to place to go. When you and your posse step into the exotic, palatial interior of this culinary landmark in Century City, you’ll think you’ve stumbled inside an Indiana Jones movie. Blown-out ceilings provide plenty of space for an over-the-top collection of Asian artifacts. The bar is always packed with a good-looking crowd ready to mingle, so dressing to impress is a must. Besides flaunting your most stylish duds, you’ll want to bring your appetite. The pan-Asian kitchen cooks up some seriously delicious “rockbites” and they’re served family style—perfect for sharing with your crew. If possible, get there during “Rocktail Hour” (again with the rocks). Head to the spacious outdoor patio, grab a prime spot, and order a round of unique concoctions like the bourbon sling–made with passion fruit and blood orange–or the sake dragon, a vodka-sake blend that gets a sophisticated twist from shiso and lime. (Get a glass of ice water too, since you’ll need something cool to fight the impending onslaught of fiery flavors.) Chat with old friends and new as you dip an Indian stuffed flatbread into hot red curry sauce. Plan your next move with your wingman—or wingwoman—after munching on Thai crispy chicken wings covered in a sweet-spicy chili sauce. And definitely save some room for dessert: RockSugar’s in-house bakery makes mouthwatering warm coconut doughnuts and caramelized banana custard cakes–a sweet ending to a very spicy night.
