Sheraton Grand London Park Lane has teamed up with French pâtissier and celebrity chef, Eric Lanlard, to bring the ‘Chocolate Box Winter Terrace’ to its five star London hotel this festive season. From 20th November, the Sheraton Grand will transform its terraces into an indulgent chocolate wonderland with opulent décor and bespoke chocolate bars, paired with decadent cocktails.
Taking inspiration from the traditional treats you would usually find in a Christmas selection box, the ‘Chocolate Box Winter Terrace’ will offer five never-before-seen chocolate bars, crafted using Eric Lanlard’s exclusive recipes for the hotel. Made using the finest chocolate and premium ingredients – from a salted butter caramel bar, a dark chocolate shell encasing an oozing rich and buttery salted toffee, to a luxury white chocolate bar with a cardamom ganache decorated with edible jewels and 23 carat gold – each bar will also be paired with a delicious festive cocktail.
In addition to the limited edition Chocolate Box menu, the terraces will be adorned with festive decorations to transport guests and visitors to a wintery wonderland. From premium polar bears handcrafted out of willow greeting guests at the hotel’s entrance, to bespoke mini chalets for couples and friends to snuggle up in and enjoy a festive tipple – visitors will truly be immersed into the Christmas spirit of the Sheraton Grand London. The exterior of the hotel will also be embellished with a luxury curtain of twinkling lights, and will flow elegantly over the front of hotel.
