What You'll Get
A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while operating a Segway. Experience both of these worlds while seated with today's Groupon: for $10, you get your choice of $25 worth of chocolates, desserts, small bites, or a wine pairing (up to a $25 value) from The Chocolate Bar at either of its two locations, downtown on Trinity Avenue or in Decatur.
The Chocolate Bar's menu contains a veritable cornucopia of house-made chocolates, dessert plates, small bites, specialty cocktails, and expertly chosen wines. If you opt for the prix-fixe wine flight, you'll get three wines ($12) and your choice of three truffles ($5), three assorted popcorns ($12), or three cheeses ($13) to sample this chocolate cabin's wares. Otherwise, you can branch outward like a curious and hungry poltergeist tree with $25 worth of treats. Turn your palate to a culinary cocktail such as a summery beer float ($6), Leinenkugel's sunset wheat poured over a scoop of orange sherbet. Offset a liquid treat with some solid comestibles, such as smoked sockeye salmon ($10) in truffle and shallot vinaigrette. If you stopped by with a gaggle of friends, sweet-feast on a large dessert plate of peach melba ($8), a treasure trove of almond-vanilla sponge cake, peach sorbet, and raspberry mousse.
Dessert bars combine the best elements of childhood and adult wheeling and dealing into a delicious explosion of tipsyness and sugar highs. Savor the ephemeral sensation among the warm hues of The Chocolate Bar; both locations feature shades of burnt orange and chocolate brown, burnished wood bars, and rotating art from local artists. Resist the urge to make like a Wonka tourist and lick the walls, as it is paint, not magical candy, that makes them appear so delicious. Groupon customers will also receive a one-time 15% discount on private-party booking at the downtown Atlanta location.
