The Middle Spoon Experience
By Natasha Naik
Sugar Land just got a little sweeter. Right in the heart of Houston’s nicest suburbs, a new cocktail bar just opened up. The Middle Spoon is the newest addition to Town Center, and has been creating a buzz with its array of signature cocktails fanciful desserts.
Its common knowledge that one of the best parts about living in a suburb are family friendly venues, however this can be a downside when every restaurant in the area is closed by 10 pm. The Middle Spoon is one of the few places open late every night, and until 2 am Thursday through Saturday. It’s the perfect spot to bring a date for a nightcap or to stop for drinks before getting dinner.
Though the spot may be known for its extensive desserts (the sticky date cake being the local favorite), its cocktails and specialty drinks are what really sets this place apart. The cozy seating allows for a romantic date, but there are booths in the back that can seat larger groups.
The spot is also known to host events, especially now that its summer. Each month they host a ‘21st Birthday Party’ on the 21st and anyone who has celebrated a birthday that month can receive happy hour rates ($7 for all cocktails) all day regardless of what time they come in.
They also hold cocktail making classes every so often to teach patrons how to create some of their signature cocktails on their own. Originally from Alabama, mother and son duo, Cindy and Karl first sampled these cocktails in Canada and just knew they had to bring them back to the States.
The Middle Spoon in Sugar Land is the first and only American location to date. Swing by during their happy hour, 3-7 pm Monday – Friday, when all their drinks are $7, and some appetizers are half off.
Residents of Sugar Land are thrilled to finally have an upscale, grown-up spot amidst the suburbia. When looking to beat the heat, or when in search of a sweet treat, think of The Middle Spoon!
