SK Lounge

Set among the suburban chain restaurant sprawl that fills much of Surprise and the West Valley is a swanky local cocktail bar that, while seemingly out of place, fills a need for area residents who otherwise would have to drive quite a distance to find something similar. SK Lounge is a neighbor and sister concept to Saigon Kitchen Vietnamese restaurant, but the bar takes a decidedly more loungey approach. Plush jewel-toned sofas surround low tables that are illuminated by overhead chandeliers, and on weekends, the space features live piano music. Martinis are made with lychee and passionfruit, while lowball cocktails feature ingredients such as Shibui rice whisky and maple syrup.
