Our favorite treat in the mini-bar at The Dorchester is the chocolate. Not the Mars bar or Toblerone — you can get those anywhere. We’re talking about tempting bars flavored with sea salt, chile pepper and rose essential oil from popular local chocolatier Rococo. You’ll also find creamy milk chocolate from Green and Black’s, a company that started in the U.K. Other snacks include potato chips, shortbread and a tin of mints.
Stay hydrated with still, sparkling or vitamin water. Or opt for Coke, Diet Coke, soda water, Firefly tonic, cranberry juice or Red Bull. For something a little stronger, there’s Absolut vodka, Gordon’s gin, The Balvenie whiskey, Havana Club rum and more. If you prefer wine, there are several bottles, including a 2009 Domaine Fourrey Chablis and a Ruinart Rosé NV — all of them will pair nicely with that flavored chocolate.
