Chocoholics needing to indulge themselves now will have a new venue—the new Emihls Gustavs Chocolate bar set to open Oct. 27 in the Old City district Rīga.
It will be the first chocolate bar in the Baltic states, according to a press release from SIA Emila Gustava šokolāde. The bar will offer not just sweets but also delicatessen foods, cheese and alcoholic beverages.
“The new chocolate bar has been a long-held dream of the company,” co-owner Zane Bērziņa said in a prepared statement. “We are very happy that there will be a place in Rīga where chocolate can be enjoyed in all its forms, for example, with chili peppers, delicatessen meats or alcohol.”
The bar will be located at Tirgoņu iela 8.
The company also is unveiling a new international brand name, Emihls Gustavs Chocolate.
The confectionary company was formed in 2001 by the same group that runs Stendera ziepju fabrika, a maker and retailer of luxury soaps.
Stendera earlier this year announced the further international expansion of its marketing into Marshall Field’s department stores in the United States. It already has stores in various European locations, including in Germany and Russia.
