For Chocolate Lovers (or Not).. Cocoa Bar is "THE" Place to Hit for NYC Chic Drinks
On a recent trip to NYC (ok.. not like it was 2 weeks ago), one of my New York based BFF’s and I were able to check out one of the coolest little boites/cafes/ bars in LES — that’s Lower East Side for those not in NY. It’s below Houston St on Clinton in an adorable little neighborhood that’s chock full of cute little fashion based stores ( I did my share to support the local economy).
This little place is called the cocoa bar and it’s everything chocolate and more. It’s an ideal place for a coffee for a match.com meeting, a first date, second date, “I think I really like her date,” or after the movie or before you hit the club date. (ok.. now that’s enough reasons to go there.)– and it’s an internet cafe too!
city to help create Liat’s now famous specialty cocktails, these luscious drinks consist of almost every ingredient imaginable, other than hard liquor. Each of these amazing cocktails has been ingeniously prepared with premium sake and wine bases.
sake and wine bases.
Get ready for the Blueberry and Black Pepper Mojito– made premium sake, mint, blueberries and a hint of black pepper. This is a stunner! It's to die for!!
There is also a Strawberry Mojito too and it’s equally tasty!
The drinks include a Cosmopolitan and the Classic Mojito (with Riesling as the base), Strawberry Margarita (garnished with a sugared chocolate rim and a chocolate dipped strawberry) (delicious!!),
The Clinton (cocoa bar’s version of a Manhattan),
Don’t forget the amazing chocolate truffles, bonbons and desserts and great coffee. This is a place to have dessert BEFORE dinner!
Located at 21 Clinton Street, LES, it’s well worth the trip- even from Los Angeles to hit this great little bar. Next time, I am bringing a crowd of people with me.
Check this out!! It’s well worth the time– and make sure you have lots of time and lots of friends. We consumed a tray of chocolates and 6 drinks that we did a roundt-table taste test amongst the four of us!
