Our Amsterdam store staff have been doing a great job in meeting the locals and spreading the Hotel Chocolat Word. Last week they did a summer food market with Yelp Amsterdam, where they had the opportunity to chat with lots of very excited chocoholics and let them know more about us…. Watch this space Amsterdam, you will be seeing a lot more of us!
We’re delighted to announce the opening of our first mainland European store in Amsterdam yesterday in a traditional town-house in the popular Heiligeweg Street area of the city. The store features a ‘secret’ Coffee vs Cocoa Bar in an atmospheric oak panelled room on the first floor – reached via a partially hidden staircase – which is serving our brand new cocoa drinks that allow guests to choose to have their favourite daily espresso, latte or cappuccino made with either coffee or cocoa beans.
I’m incredibly excited about this and our European plans. The Dutch market is very similar to the British and so I feel we’ll fit in perfectly. So if you happen to be visiting the Amsterdam area in the near future, be sure to stop by!
