Thanks to the warm welcome it has received since opening its first London bricks and mortar site in Clapham Junction, Knoops, the chocolate drinks specialist, is launching a second site in the capital on Kensington High Street. Despite months of economic uncertainty, founder Jens Knoop has decided to continue with his expansion plans, with the opening bringing some much-needed good news in these unprecedented times.
Boasting Knoops’ trademark sleek and minimalist interior, the Kensington outpost is located just a stone’s throw from High Street Kensington tube. He discovered his love of chocolate growing up in rural Germany, and years later, still harbouring the same passion for the confectionery, he opened the original Knoops in Rye, East Sussex, in 2013.
A first of its kind in the chocolate world, Knoops allows guests to create bespoke drinks from a menu that encompasses 21 different chocolates (13 of which are vegan) and five milks. A ‘Knoopologist’ guides guests through the chocolate percentage menu, flavour options and milk choices, meaning the opportunities are endless.
