We are delighted to announce that we have won the grand prize at this year’s Retail Week Interior Awards – the Retail Interior of the Year – for our flagship Roast+Conch store in Covent Garden designed by Terry Moore (www.terrymooredesign.com). This jewel in the industry’s crown took place on 27th September at London’s Park Lane Hotel, where 700 top retailers and designers gathered to hear the results.
Roast+Conch is our new Covent Garden store that encompasses all that we do under one roof – with daily cocoa bean roasting and ultra fresh, small batch chocolate making in a theatre kitchen, as well as a café menu and our exclusive brewed cocoa drinks. You can also find all of your favourite Hotel Chocolat gifts and treats in the ground floor boutique, with the café and kitchen in the atmospheric basement.
Roast+Conch continues our strong design ethos that successfully marries the dual personalities of Hotel Chocolat – namely the sophisticated, fashion-led side of our stylish products and the earthy, authentic aspects of a hands-on cocoa grower. Roast+Conch Covent Garden was created to take our design ethos to another level – being a restful sanctuary for our guests, while also strongly reflecting the fact that we are one of the world’s few cocoa growing chocolatiers. We are absolutely delighted that our vision has been recognised with such a high profile award.
