Julia Baker Confections Opens in December at Biltmore Fashion Park
PHOENIX (Nov. 19, 2012) – Julia Baker Confections will open its new flagship chocolate boutique and wine bar providing the ultimate chocolate experience this December at Biltmore Fashion Park.
“I’m thrilled to unveil our flagship location right here in Phoenix,” said Julia Baker, founder, executive chef, and CEO of Julia Baker Confections. “It’s the ultimate destination for chocolate lovers -- whether you’re shopping for the perfect gift, hoping to enjoy an indulgent afternoon escape, a sweet date night, or looking for the perfect location for a celebration.”
To create a space as luxurious as her chocolates, Julia enlisted a top design team including award-winning architect Mark Candelaria, named “Master of the Southwest” by Phoenix Home and Garden Magazine, and acclaimed interior designer Claire Ownby and with exquisite construction services provided by Schultz Development Corp.
Just what is this ultimate chocolate experience?
Shop A treat for all the senses, the boutique was designed with the Julia Baker Confections product line as the inspiration. The seating area and draperies are hand-blended hues of chocolate and caramel, accented with white chocolate tinted cabinetry, topped off with Carrera marble bar and floors.
Mirrored backlit display cases provide an elegant canvas for browsing Julia’s stunning, handcrafted chocolates and coveted gift box collections, including her 48-piece Red Hat Box Assortment. A number of Julia’s personal favorites, such as her cake truffles – a delightful blend of Julia’s cake and her decadent chocolate – also will be available for purchase.
The boutique will accept custom orders, offer corporate gift-giving services, provide personalized greeting cards and express shipping.
Sip The intimate wine bar will feature the finest wines with a menu of Julia’s signature chocolates and desserts. Guests will be able to enjoy Julia’s red velvet cake, chocolate mousse cake, warm chocolate lava cake and other creations that have been enjoyed by celebrities including Bono and U2, Jennifer Aniston, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Alicia Keys. The wines featured on the menu can be added to any gift box purchase so you can bestow or enjoy the ultimate chocolate experience at home.
Celebrate The wine bar, a perfect venue for private events, can accommodate parties of up to 30 guests. Select from a list of chocolate experiences ranging in price from $24 per person to $100 per person. It’s the perfect space for bridal celebrations, birthday parties or corporate gatherings.
