The Chocolate Bar is a gooey, creamy, cocoa paradise, a chocolate-lover’s dream that offers the cure for any sweet tooth. Its two hot locations serve chocolate everything: chocolate-dipped fruit, chocolate cake, more than 20 flavors of homemade ice cream, chocolate pizza, frozen hot chocolate, chocolate cookies, chocolate brownies, and more. For your pup, there are fresh-baked dog treats. For the South Beach health nut, there is sugar-free chocolate goodness. With today’s Groupon, $5 gets you $10 worth of chocolate delights at The Chocolate Bar.
The Chocolate Bar makes every chocolate concoction on-site in its fabulous chocolate kitchens. Its chocolate artists create a chocolate reality—a world so over the top that co-owner Eric Shamban says he’s seen customers hyperventilate from excitement. It’s no surprise co-owner Gilbert Johnson’s honed chocolate artistry amazes Chocolate Bar goers–the cocoa expert has been making chocolate for an impressive 27 years.
The Bar features a live band every Tuesday evening, but most of all, it’s got chocolate. Loads and loads of chocolate. Check out the place one Yelper calls a little slice of heaven on Earth to get your piece of the chocolate pie.
Media outlets are crazy for The Chocolate Bar; it's been reviewed by tons of food critics, including The BLVD Mag, which raves “Willy Wonka has nothing on this establishment.”

Chocolate and Health
Dr. Pierre Armstrong, writing in the journal Medicine, issued this update on the medicinal properties of chocolate:
- Not only does chocolate taste great, it's also good for you. My early research shows that chocolate tastes very, very good, so it's safe to assume it's also good for you.
Dr. Armstrong has written several best-selling books about the health benefits of chocolate, including Chocolate Cures They Don't Want You to Know About and Chocolate Is Very Good For You to Eat Exclusively. Dr. Armstrong admits, "Would I recommend eating chocolate for every meal? Yes, I would."
