Riding the S-Line into the Heart of Sugar House

Somehow during the last seven days we've gone from Indian Summer to depths of Winter... What's up Salt Lake?! Seriously, it was 65 degrees last week!

Anyway, despite the weather, we've been highly anticipating UTA's new S-Line to Sugar House for a while. This active, vibrant neighborhood of eclectic businesses and proud residents has deserved a connecting streetcar for a long time. So as soon as it was up and running, we made like Joseph Conrad and journeyed into the heart of... Sugar House. I think it's fair to say our trip went better than his, though.

Check it out! Here's a video we took on the S-Line all the way from Central Point to Fairmont Park on 1100 East

Following the course of the city's original streetcar line from 1900, the S-Line dropped us off in heart of Sugar House: A few minutes walk from 21st and 11th, with all its iconic local businesses, and just down the street from Sugar House Park.

The Sugar House neighborhood has an identity all its own, unapologetically confident, yet welcoming to everyone. And that same identity is reflected in the neighborhoods businesses and business owners. Here's just a small sample of the caliber of local businesses Sugar House has to offer:

Solissa's Boutique

Cool and contemporary, and eclectic throwbacks, Solissa's Boutique boasts a stunning array of women's clothes and accessories. And, through December 14th, you can get 20% off your entire purchase!


Imagine the most obscure, cheeky, yet intelligently designed gift possible, and chances are, Unhinged has it. They source from local and independent designers, and carry everything from quirky sweatshirts to handmade gifts.

Sugar House Coffee

An icon of the entire neighborhood, Sugar House Coffee is an ardent supporter of music, art and all things community. They also exclusively use locally roasted beans from Rimini Coffee, so you can be sure your coffee's always fresh.

VIDA Salon

VIDA Salon has four incredible stylists. Aside from being one of those awesome stylists at VIDA, Oscar Garcia is also the genius behind Local First Utah's gift-wrapped building. So if you've enjoyed viewing our giant present, be sure and let him know you appreciate his artistry.

Keep it local in Sugar House this season at these and countless other local shops!
