Chocolate Emporium at Four Seasons The Westcliff


Calling all fellow chocoholics, we’re in for a treat.

Four Seasons The Westcliff Johannesburg has opened its very first decadent Chocolate Emporium.


Yes, you read that correctly.

The Cellar Door, which is Joburg’s most sought after private dining venue, has been fully transformed and decked from one end to another in chocolate. It is a whirlwind of utter indulgence, and as a chocoholic myself, I must say it is amazing.

Just imagine a heavenly all-chocolate dessert buffet, along with plinths stacked high with hand-crafted Belgian pralines, beautiful crafted African Easter egg sculptures and chocolate coated local flowers. And to top it off, delicious chocolately cocktails and hot beverages, like a minty hot chocolate.

This is not a dream. 

“This is the ‘Willy Wonka golden ticket’ that chocolate lovers have been waiting for,” says Leon Cronje, Four Seasons Head Pastry Chef.

When? The room is on display from April 13 until May 1. 2017 during lunch, dinner and weekend brunch periods. It is open to all visitors dining at the hotel.

Look out for the Chocolate Emporium competition that will be announced on Four Seasons The Westcliff Facebook and Twitter pages, where one lucky follower will win a private tour of the Chocolate Emporium and complimentary weekend brunch for two as well as a praline making class with a Master Chocolatier.

Who is excited?

  1. And queue one of the main reasons why I wish I visited JHB more frequently. I think I need to start doing so – a good amount of the fiance’s family live there, I should start convincing him it’s a good plan!

    I won’t lie – I think I blacked out after I read ‘minty hot chocolate’ and had to wait until someone could fan me to life, before I continued.
