A Peek Inside The Chocolate Room, Re-Opening Soon on Fifth Avenue

The Chocolate Room closed up shop at its original location on Fifth between St. Marks and Warren a couple months ago and moved into a small pop-up shop a block away while its next location, in the space that was occupied by a glass shop for 101 years before closing, is under construction. I took a peek inside earlier this week, and construction seems to be coming along.

Swir Glass opened in the space in 1912, and in 1972 the Garrastegui family took it over, changed the name to Mega Glass and Sashes, and ran it until being forced to sell late last year. The Chocolate Room, the shop and cafe specializing in - obviously - chocolate, snatched it up soon after (after their own rent skyrocketed), and their newest incarnation will majorly increase its size.

It looks like the place has basically been gutted, save for the ceiling. No word on whether the new owners threw out the violin that was mysteriously hanging from the ceiling when the "new" owners moved in 42 years ago and never touched.
