Baileys' Bar Chocolat Pop-up in Covent Garden

Baileys is hosting a special Chocolat(e) bar in Covent Garden from 11th - 16th September, where you can explore exhibits like video installations and works by Bompas & Parr, and diners can enjoy dinner and lunch cooked by Blanch & Shock.  Tickets cost £17.50 for lunch and £25 for dinner, but you can visit the exhibition for free.  NB - Over 18s only.

"BAILEYS is bringing its new innovative liquid Baileys Chocolat Luxe to life this September with Bar Chocolat - an immersive, multi-sensory experience inspired by the pleasure of chocolate. 
Bar Chocolat, open to the public from 11th – 16th September in London, will see handpicked visionaries Bompas & Parr, Tabitha Denholm, Petra Storrs, Amelia Rope, Lou Hayter and Blanch & Shock join forces to create a sensory journey in taste.
The Covent Garden space will feature a large-scale edible art installation created by Artisan chocolatier Amelia Rope and stylist Petra Storrs, a Bompas & Parr scent and flavour experience, music director Tabitha Denholm’s first-ever video installation and a musical collaboration from pop ingénue Lou Hayter. 
Petra Storrs - who has created memorable costumes and staging for the likes of Lady Gaga, Paloma Faith and various fashion shoots – 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. 
Baileys Chocolat Luxe is the first time that real Belgian chocolate has been fused with alcohol in a way that delivers the multi-sensory experience of chocolate in a glass.
The public can enjoy free entry to Bar Chocolat the public by registering for limited tickets."

  1. Hi,

    Do you know what type of food will be served? Will it be suitable for vegetarians?


  2. Hi!
    It says this on the booking page:
    "(Note that the menu contains meat, fish, gluten and dairy. If you are vegetarian, or if have any further enquiries regarding the menu, please email and we will accommodate. You are encouraged to announce this at reception upon arrival.)"
    Beyond that I don't know I'm afraid.
