INDIANAPOLIS — Sugar Factory American Brasserie starts taking reservations for the downtown Indianapolis location on Wednesday, and the nearly 10,000 square-foot hotspot promises to open with a bang.

Sugar Factory's grand opening is set for Saturday, Apr. 23, where Nick Cannon will be DJing.

Located at 49 W. Maryland St., inside the Circle Centre Mall, Sugar Factory will have indoor dining for 184 people, a bar that seats 12, and a patio with space for 32, according to a release for the grand opening.

Fans of the candy cafe chain can expect much of the same colorful decor as its trademark locations in places like Las Vegas and Chicago. The Indy location will feature large flower walls, video walls, a candy-heart wall, three-dimensional floral ceilings, neon signs, a floor-to-ceiling shelved candy store, and a "Pretty in Pink Cafe."

The Sugar Factory's famous and aptly over-the-top food and drink items seen on your Instagram and Tik Tok feeds are on the Indy menu.

Open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, the Sugar Factory's celebrity-endorsed smoky cocktail goblets, the "Insane Double Stack Rainbow Pancakes," the "Big Cheesy Burger," the "Caramel Sugar Daddy Milkshake," the "Campfire Spiked S’Mores Milkshake" and "King Kon Sundae" are all staples to be on the menu.
