The Peninsula’s chocolate bar
Skip the noisy, crowded bars on Friday and Saturday nights in favor of an elegant night of chocolate and live music at The Peninsula’s chocolate bar. A chocolate sommelier crafts your bespoke hot-chocolate drink from your choice of base (white to extra dark) and spices, melted in a mini copper pot to order. “Bar snacks” at this indulgent buffet include bite-sized chocolate treats of all persuasions, from dipped brownies and chocolate éclairs to dark-chocolate passion fruit tarts. And if you do want some booze, there’s always the chocolate martini.
