Chocolate Bar at Le Royal Monceau, Paris

If you’re in Paris this winter and craving something sweet, stop by Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris for a chocolate treat created by illustrious pastry chef Pierre Hermé. For the winter, Hermé has transformed the hotel’s swanky Bar Long, designed by Philippe Starck, into a destination for chocolate.

Taking place every day from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. (through March 31), the pop-up bar showcases chocolate in all manner of incarnations- from a “16th century hot chocolate” with South American spices and a chocolate mousse made with Grand Cru Manjari smooth cream to a millefeuille crafted with caramelized puff pastry, Grand Cru Araguani chocolate mascarpone cream, salted butter caramel and dark chocolate slivers with fleur de sel.
