Chocolate Lover Card
Set out for a sweet and boozy exploration of downtown San Francisco’s booming chocolate scene. With a knowledgeable local leading the way, traipse between candy boutiques, lounges, and contemporary chocolatiers as you sample bean-to-bar treats paired with microbrews, local wines, and craft cocktails.
Meet up with your guide among the skyscrapers of the Financial District and head to your first stop, a swanky hotel lounge. Chat about the history of cocoa confections over bites of creamy milk chocolate and robust dark varieties, accompanying each with a sip from your cleverly paired craft cocktail. Your next stop combines 2 things that Belgium does best—chocolate and beer—as you nibble European bars alongside a refreshing ale.
The fun ramps up with a blind tasting at a newsstand that sells 225 bars from 15 different countries. From there, bite through the colorful candy coating of almond-flavored dragées, and head to an award-winning shop to try locally made goodies. A delicate hazelnut macaron is the perfect palate cleanser before your final stop at a tucked away and historic downtown bar, where you can compare flavor notes on a flight of French wines paired with rich and creamy truffles.
As a bonus, your tour also comes with a Chocolate Lover Card, which is good for discounts and VIP perks at 10 different chocolate boutiques around the city.
