7. Don’t Miss This Hidden Gem – Chocolate Lab

Generally a woman simply wants chocolate. And typically a woman simply wants a very good cocktail. At Chocolate Lab – they’ve each! 

This small chocolate-centric restaurant and chocolate store lately relocated to a cute little spot within the Hilltop Neighborhood. It’s recognized for its craft cocktails – and sure – completely the whole lot served there (drinks and meals) have chocolate in it.  You’ve in all probability by no means thought-about chocolate and lasagna, however it’s unbelievable!  

Their cocktails are concoctions you gained’t discover wherever else.  Fantastically balanced and boozy – half of the enjoyable is watching the mixologist make them! How a couple of S’moretini (marshmallow vodka, chocolate, espresso, cream, and toasted marshmallow), or a Flaming Queen (Scotch, Rye, maple, blackberry, vermouth, and citrus)? 

They name it a lab as a result of it does really feel like an enormous chocolate science experiment. I by no means preferred chemistry at school, however had I been capable of experiment with chocolate in chemistry – I’m fairly positive I might have gone into science as a profession! The décor is ‘lab-like’; they use beakers and numerous tubes that I barely bear in mind from my highschool chemistry class to combine drinks. Their meals is kind of experimental in nature. Tortellini with darkish chocolate shavings that carry out the flavour, or bourbon chocolate BBQ sauce pulled pork. And don’t even get me began on the dessert menu – it’s my ‘go to’ place in Denver for dessert. 

You’ll be able to go have an extremely distinctive craft cocktail, dinner, decadent chocolate dessert, AND take-home hand-made truffles from the Chocolate Lab – positively a singular cease in Denver!
