Chocolate Couture at The Halkin

William Curley’s ‘Couture Chocolate Afternoon Tea'

Exclusively created by William Curley, the four-time winner of ‘Britain’s Best Chocolatier’ in collaboration with The Halkin as part of the hotel’s 20th anniversary celebrations.
Guests will be able to combine culture with chocolate, as The Halkin Bar has been transformed into a pop-up ‘Culture Lounge’ by luxury publishers, ASSOULINE. The ground floor space showcases some of the most iconic coffee-table books which guests can browse in a library-style environment whilst enjoying William’s delicacies.

In addition to that great English teatime classic comprised of freshly-made scones with clotted cream and jams and a selection of sandwiches, guests can choose from William Curley’s à la carte selection, which includes the following stand-out delicacies: 

  • Chocolate Financier with Passion fruit Curd: Moist chocolate cake centred with mango compote and topped with passion fruit curd
  • Orange and Chocolate Sacher: Layers of almond sponge, chocolate mousse and orange marmalade
  • Sea Salt Caramel and Raspberry Tart: Crisp hazelnut tart, filled with sea salt caramel, raspberry dacquoise and compote and topped with a rich chocolate cremeaux
  • Black Forest Dome: Dark chocolate and white chocolate mousses, kirsch-soaked sponge and a cherry compote
  • Chocolate Macaroon: Soft chocolate macaroon filled with a Toscano chocolate ganache

Priced from £37.50 per person, the tea will be available daily from the 22nd November between 3pm and 6pm daily. A Champagne afternoon tea will be available for £47.50. For reservations please contact: +44 (0) 20 7333 1060.
