Nary a neighborhood is more boastful about its nooks and crannies than Sugar House. From mom-and-pop shops that say nay to big-box chain stores to a number of new gastropubs delighting residents’tastebuds, this ‘hood has everything you could wish for when it comes to entertainment and community.
Sugar House received its name during the days of the early pioneers, because the area’s loamy soil was perfect for growing and cultivating sugar beets. Even now, it marches to the beet of a different drummer.
It’s an eclectic scene. A private college, Westminster College, brings vitality and new life every fall with its hip college students. Young families and long-standing residents are proud of Sugar House and take action in community and civic engagements. And, of course, there’s the bevy of Salt Lake City’s best shopping spots, dining establishments, and hidden gems.
