How sweet it is! Starting today and continuing through Monday, February 14 -- yes, Valentine's Day -- the Hyatt Regency Denver , 650 15th Street, will feature the aptly named Chocolate Lovers' Lounge in the Peaks Lounge.
Not only is the view of the city and the mountains from this 27th floor space incredibly romantic, but the chocolate spread is an amazing sight, too. The Chocolate Lovers' Lounge features four stations that pair chocolates with port (the port station is pictured above), champagne, red wine or dessert wine. You can visit one chocolate-and-drink station for $15, or sign up for all four at $45.
Chef Manfred Steurwald has created more than twenty desserts to complement the featured beverages, as well as other delicacies -- even savories, including cheese and nuts. But the chocolate is the main event; the Hyatt expects to use more than 400 pounds of high-quality chocolate during the four-day lounge.
The all-you-can-eat-and-drink deal should be a great, low-key Valentine's date -- but it also would work for singles or groups who are more into chocolate than hearts and flowers. The lounge will be open from 7 to 11 p.m.; you can make reservations by calling 303-486-4433.
