Oli The Choc is described as ‘an avid creator of wild chocolatey awesomeness’, known for his innovative and stylish chocolate creations. As INNSiDE Manchester’s new in-house Chocolatier, Oli will head up a series of impromptu chocolate workshops for guests staying at the hotel.

Threading the partnership through the whole hotel, guests can try the ‘Chocolate INN Disguise’ cocktail at INNSiDE Manchester’s in-house restaurant, First Street Bar & Kitchen. Launched in celebration of the new partnership, the Chocolate INN Disguise is a delicious creamy mix of summer fruits and an indulgent chocolate vodka infusion with a long chocolate finish.
