Bar Susu’s Susu Sundays Are a Weekend Highlight

Once reserved for football, religious lollygagging and laundry, Sunday is poised to become the highlight of your week.

Main Street’s Bar Susu is turning the unofficial “Day of Puttering Around at Home in Your Pyjamas” into an exciting new affair with Susu Sundays. Since making its debut this past November with a night of sake and oysters (and bubbly, too, because… why not?), the weekly themed soiree is livening up the end-of-week blues and giving Friday a run for its money. 

“I remember being in the industry in my 20s and Sunday night was always a big night for us to go out and do something fun with friends,” says Cody Allmin, co-owner of Bar Susu. With Susu Sundays, the award-winning room is attempting to recapture this restaurant industry night vibe, rebranding the sleepiest day of the week as “Saturday’s cool cousin who insists we do shots.”

The effort has paid off, with reservations nearly doubling and a roster of standout themes—including Fizzies and Glizzies (that’s hot dogs and champagne, of course), the instantly popular Flight Club that pairs à la carte offerings with select wines, and a New Orleans-inspired night (an idea born from the bar team’s own visit to the Mardi Gras city). The whole staff is involved in thinking up themes, so the sky’s the limit for what’s possible on any given Sunday. “We’re just throwing stuff at the walls to see what sticks,” says Allmin. “It’s about trying something new, or trying something fun.” And with talks of DJs, avant-garde pop-ups, community collabs and guest chefs, the ubiquitous Sunday Scaries may well be replaced with FOMO.
