This Chocolate Shop Is Everything A Modern Day Willy Wonka Experience Would Be

If Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory got a compact makeover and was made to look like a chic Parisian boutique by celeb favorite designer Kelly Wearstler, then the result would be the new Compartes chocolate shop at the Westfield Century City.

If you’re not familiar with Compartes chocolate, a quick cursory hashtag search on Instagram will yield some of the most stunning and eye-popping chocolate bars you’ve ever seen. I’m talking about vibrantly colored bars chockfull of unique fillings like dried berries and even those lunchroom staple pink and white animal cookies we all loved growing up.

Chocolatier Jonathan Grahm has gone to detailed measures to ensure than the chocolate experience here at Compartes is one of a kind, from the chocolate on tap from brass faucets to their signature frozen hot chocolate to even the Wearstler designed interior that vibes more with Emerald City than it does with any semblance of a typical sweet shop.

But with the most Instagrammed chocolate in the world, did you expect any lesser type of gorgeous?
