Hello candy lovers and faithful Dylan’s Candy Bar followers!
Quick, what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think Dylan’s Candy Bar?
Let me guess… candy?
True, but there is so much more to Dylan’s Candy Bar than our delicious candy bars and eye-popping Color Your World display. Our mixologist Marc works hard to create deliciously original cocktails upstairs in our bar for those looking for a more adult alternative to candy buttons and gummy bears.
Remember Katrina Brown, our super cute model from our summer catalog photoshoot?
She and some of her friends spent Friday night at Dylan’s Candy Bar sipping candy cocktails and were sweet enough to share some stories from the night with us! Their experience was so sweet that we wanted to share it with our readers.

A couple weeks ago, Katrina met up with a few friends for happy hour drinks on a Monday night (2 for 1 candy cocktails!) at our flagship store in NYC, but made all their other friends so jealous that they decided to return the following weekend for the Dylan’s Candy Bar movie and popcorn night on Friday night.
The movie of the night you ask? Mean Girls!
According to Katrina, between the group that was there almost every line in the movie was quoted, and made for a fun and interactive movie watching experience for the group of friends.
But of course, the favorite part of the night was sampling the delicious candy cocktails that Dylan’s offers. The favorite drink was by and large the Pop Rocks Explosion, followed by the Root Beer Floatini in a close second. If the drinks weren’t sweet enough, the bartenders certainly were.

According to Katrina, “We had a wonderful experience with our new favorite bartenders in New York City who were super fun and had personalities to match the colorful, inviting decor inside the candy shop downstairs AND the bar upstairs.”
For this group of young 20-somethings, a night at Dylan’s Candy Bar was the perfect way to bring out their inner child AND have the same great experience that they would at any other Manhattan bar on a Friday night.
Katrina’s friend Joanna summed up the evening perfectly when she said, “Dylan’s Candy Bar is the most amazing place in New York City! It is the only place I feel it is acceptable to embrace your childhood as an adult!”
From cupcake booths to delicious and uniquely mixed cocktails, Dylan’s Candy Bar undoubtedly makes for a rad night out in Manhattan!
Thanks Katrina for sharing your Friday night with us!
