The dream has finally become a reality, it’s time to live in a world of chocolate. Popping up in Covent garden this Wednesday, Bailey’s brings you ‘Bar Chocolate’; an edible pop-up space which is an immersive, multisensory experience, a journey in taste, all inspired by the pleasure of chocolate.
A selection of experimental visionaries have been chosen to bring the allure of chocolate to life. The Covent Garden space will feature a large-scale edible art installation created by Artisan chocolatier Amelia Rope and stylist Petra Storrs, with multi sensory installations, including a Bompas & Parr scent and flavour experience, a video installation by Tabitha Denholm and music by Lou Hayter.
Petra Storrs, the designer who has created memorable costumes and staging for the likes of Lady Gaga and Paloma Faith, will be creating an elaborately staged bar space that will provide a beautiful homage to the drinking experience, adding theatre to the first time that visitors sip Bompas & Parr’s Baileys Chocolat Luxe Rococo Serve.
Over the course of the six days, a series of ticketed events will see a unique experimental supperclub from Blanch & Shock take pride of place. Combining theatre and innovative cuisine, the three-course dinner laid directly on to the long U-shaped table will see 30 diners enjoy a series of gastronomic delights at each sitting.
Bar Chocolat is open from 11 September – 16 September, entry is free with meals at £17.50 for lunch and £25 for dinner and drinks included. For more information and to book entry or a meal, visit www.barchocolatlondon.com.
