Hotel Chocolat – Chocolate Lock-In
Maybe not the first thing to pop into your head when smoeone says ‘lock-in’ but my goodness, this is a lock-in you are not going to want to miss
Hotel Chocolat is an upmarket chocolatier located on Henry Street in Dublin One. They’re a british company and the only company in the UK that grow cocoa on their own plantation. Basically – these lads know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to chocolate.
They have 103 shops and cafés worldwide, as well as a hotel in the making on their own cocoa plantation in the Caribbean. They are strong believers in originality, authenticity and ethics. No nonsense, just delicious, ethical, fairly traded chocolate.
Every month, our DublinTown branch of Hotel Chocolat hosts in-store Chocolate lock-ins. When the store is closed, you’re invited in for a very special unique chocolate experience. One of it’s kind in Dublin. Tickets cost €12, and the event lasts 45 minutes. The maximum number of guests per lock-in is 10 attendees, so pre booking well in advance is necessary.
The store team are on hand to provide tastings, along with a glass of prosecco, as well as to answer all questions during the 45 minute event. You’re given a secret card on arrival that entitles you to the price of your ticket back, €12, against agny purchase made on the night.
The team may have a little something extra waiting in the wings for you as well, but you’ll just have to head along to find out what it is.
