Now Open.

Shug’s is starting the soda fountain revival in Seattle by bringing back 1930’s-style soda fountain classics. Shug’s will also be serving up G-rated concoctions like sundaes, floats, ice cream novelties with about 15 to 20 different flavors from Lopez Island Creamery. And don’t forget the R-rated folks, Shug’s will server beer and wine, including Champagne by the glass and speciality cocktails.

The Shug’s team will be accompanied by “soda jerk’s” — aka soda fountain operators. These operators in the ’30’s made Ice Cream Soda’s by putting flavored syrup into a specially designed tall glass, adding carbonated water and, finally, one or two scoops of ice cream. The result was served with a long-handled spoon, most commonly known as a “soda spoon”, and drinking straws.

The most popular item on the menu is the classic Egg Cream. We have a little secret, there is no egg in the drink.

Insider fact: Owner’s (Colleen) mom called her “Shug” like Sugar when she was a little girl growing up. Also, you’ll notice a map of London on the walls, that’s her daughter’s name!

The next time you’re at Pike Place, look for a walk-up window and enjoy a classic beverage from the past.
