Coco Chocolate Lounge & Bistro Knows its Customers, Offers a Unique, Female-Friendly Ambiance
Despite a struggling economy over the past three years, Coco Chocolate Lounge & Bistro is thriving. They’ve managed to expand their concept, make changes and expansions, and continue offering a signature appeal.
“The initial concept for Coco was a simple one: to provide a unique space in terms of decor, offer sophisticated but unpretentious and affordable French food and add intrigue through unique cocktails and desserts, says owner Emmanuelle Lebourg. The restaurant has a clientele that is more than 75 percent female during the week. It has expanded its square footage and recently hired a new, classically trained French Four Star Executive Chef.
“As a foodie myself, I never knew where to go out late after a show or movie for a bite to eat, so we decided to offer our full menu until 11 p.m. during the week and even later on weekends. I wanted to create a space that would be inviting for women to come to alone or in groups to enjoy a drink, dinner, or just share a laugh in, says Lebourg.
In addition to the weekly promotion with SavorSA, on June 23-25, the restaurant will have a three-day celebration in both the bistro and XO nightclub, with three special signature cocktails created by the in-house French mixologist as well as three nightly dinner specials designed by chef Eyhab Hatab.
The restaurant and nightclub are located at the Shops at Legacy at Loop 1604 and U.S. 281. Opened in June, 2008, Coco Lounge & Bistro is independently woman owned and operated.
