The two-story restaurant features a Moulin Rouge marquee, a walk up indoor/outdoor carousel bar serving signature goblets, outdoor patios on both levels with a daiquiri bar upstairs showcasing a spectacular Strip view, a carousel surrounded by a “candyland” inspired garden that leads to a gazebo, an extensive candy selection in the confectionary shop and a Chocolate Lounge on the second level.

Guests first see a floor-to-ceiling candy dot wall and candy bins featuring more than 500 types of candy including the Couture Pops, chocolate-covered gummy bears, jelly beans of various flavors and chocolates. Guests can choose from two glass cases filled with homemade ice cream and gelato, or milkshakes, fresh homemade pastries and coffee.

The main dining room features chandeliers and red booths that lead to a full-service indoor and outdoor goblet and daiquiri bar that looks like a white marble carousel. On the second floor, guests enter the “Sugar Factory Attraction” with a whimsical “candyland” themed 14-seat horse-drawn carousel surrounded by 5,000 light-up candy flowers, oversized cupcakes, lollipops and animal sculptures that overlook the Strip. The garden leads to a private gazebo covered in twinkling lights available for private parties.

The Chocolate Lounge — decked out in gold and caramel with floor-to-ceiling windows — offers chocolate-based martinis and cocktails such as German chocolate cake, chocolate mudslide martini and the caramel truffle, all served in chocolate-dipped glassware. Guests find more than  two dozen flavors of truffles that include cognac, praline nougatine and clavados white truffle hearts. The over-the-top “Chocolate Gold” fondue contains a gold-coated dark chocolate truffle melted table-side and served with edible gold-coated items including chocolate nuggets, truffles, gummy bears, strawberries, chocolate cupcakes and homemade chocolate bars.
