Backstreet’s back, alright.
The Backstreet Boys, the best-selling boy band in history and among the world’s best-selling artists, took a break from their Planet Hollywood-based Las Vegas residency to step onto the red carpet at Sugar Factory Fashion Show, Sugar Factory’s new flagship restaurant and retail destination on the Las Vegas Strip. Nick Carter, AJ McLean, Howie D., Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson appeared in front of a screaming congregation of adoring fans on Thursday, April 20th, exactly 24 years after the musical heartthrobs officially became a band in 1993.
With locations in Orlando, Miami, New York, Chicago, and Bahrain, Las Vegas’ Sugar Factory is sure to prove a sweet treat for tourists and residents alike, with a sculpture garden (featuring decorative mazes and LED displays), a colorful confectionery (complete with a sparkling, disco-ball inspired rubber ducky centerpiece) full of sweets and treats, and The Chocolate Lounge, a soon-to-open, sweet-toothed dining experience based on the upper level, its wraparound views of the Las Vegas Strip almost as delicious as its sugarcoated menu.

Menu items include chocolate martinis (available with and without alcohol), milk, white and dark chocolate dipped cocktails, wines, individual and tray chocolates, sweet and traditional dough pizzas, fondues, and — of course — a desserts list as long as Willy Wonka’s chocolate river.
Sugar Factory Fashion Show will continue its grand opening celebration with superstar model and cosmetics giant Kylie Jenner this Saturday at 6 pm. Sugar Factory is open Monday - Thursday from 9:30 am - 11 pm, Friday and Saturday from 9 am - 12 am, and Sundays from 9 am to 11 pm.
