Encompassing one city block at Fifth Avenue and G Street, the 73,000-square-foot Theatre Box® complex, a collaboration between TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and Sugar Factory, was inspired by the movie-going experience and a traditional theatre box filled with various treats. The first phase of Theatre Box opened in December, unveiling TCL Chinese Theatre’s first luxury dine-in cinema, Sugar Factory confections, retail, gelato bar and café, Sugar Factory American Brasserie and Chocolate Lounge. A stylish rooftop restaurant and bar, 5th & Sky Rooftop Gardens & Lounge, debuted in August.
