Las Vegas-based Sugar Factory has applied for a liquor license for its forthcoming location on the first floor of the train station, according to a D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration notice released last week.

The “tavern, candy and retail store” is planning to sell alcoholic drinks, along with ice cream and juice, among other items, the ABRA document says.

Sugar Factory’s cocktails include “Lollipop Passion,” “White Gummi” and “Sunshine Tea,” which are served in 60-ounce goblets. It also has smaller-sized drinks, including a “Cotton Candy Cosmopolitan,” “Blueberry Bikini Martini” and “Sexual Chocolate,” according to its menu.

The store is expected to have 16 seats, but will hold about 30 people. It is slated to be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.

But the opening date of the shop wasn’t immediately clear. A Sugar Factory representative didn’t respond to a request for comment.

In August 2013, the company announced that it would bring a “a fab café and goblet bar” to Union Station that year.

“All of our sweet fans can grab our special treats on the go when they are traveling for work or pleasure,” Sugar Factory said in the announcement. “One-of-a-kind candy confections have been created for our new D.C. home that include a signature All-American Couture Pop and White House-inspired gummies.”
