Starting tomorrow, there’s yet another delicious reason to head to The Corners of Brookfield.
That’s because Indulgence Chocolatiers will open the doors of its new West Side retail shop, just in time for holiday shopping.
Inside Indulgence, customers will find a robust selection of handcrafted artisan confections, including truffles, chocolate bars, hot cocoa mix and toffee. Guests looking for holiday gifts will also find truffle gift boxes, as well as gift sets featuring chocolates and wine.
The Brookfield location, which is the largest of Indulgence's three shops, also features a spacious pairing bar where up to 25 guests can gather to enjoy curated chocolate flights paired with beer, wine or cheese.
Beginning in January, the pairing bar will also function as a space for Indulgence’s popular pairing classes, which invite guests to explore both traditional and nontraditional chocolate pairings, including beer, wine, bourbon, cheese and cocktails. Guests can watch the Indulgence website for a schedule of offerings in the weeks ahead. Gift cards for pairing classes will also be available to purchase for holiday gift giving.
“Brookfield is such a great location for us,” notes chocolatier and owner Julie Waterman. “We’re able to draw from areas that are North, South and West of Milwaukee. It’s a really great opportunity for us to share our chocolate with a larger audience.”
Starting Nov. 23, Indulgence Chocolatiers Brookfield is open Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
