Located in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Bar Cocoa has become one of Charlotte’s best-known stops for anyone with a sweet tooth. The upscale dessert bar, headed by pastry chef Jessica Swannie, boasts an eclectic array of cakes, pastries, and even gelatos. Duck into the Ritz-Carlton to escape the city’s chill, then follow the festive décor into Bar Cocoa for a holiday treat. The sweet snap of their beautifully-crafted house-made gingerbread cookies will bring you back to a childhood spent sitting cross-legged in front of the fireplace, while their refined confections and bold ginger taste will send you right back into the twinkling dining nook of Charlotte’s best dessert bar.
