The launch of HEXX marks Nevada’s entry into the exclusive world of authentic chocolate making. In true bean-to-bar form, HEXX uses cacao beans sourced from the best farms located 20 degrees north and south of the equator, and transforms them into craft chocolate showcasing the flavorful varietals of different regions and growers around the world. Unlike many other types of chocolate, HEXX’s chocolate is created from only two ingredients: cacao beans and organic palm sugar. Guests may watch and experience the process of chocolate making at the chocolate counter, Twenty XX Degrees, accessible through both the restaurant and retail shop.
The creators of HEXX were influenced and inspired by a myriad of people, places and experiences from their travels around the world. Their stories are shared through Alexxa, a mystical muse whose portrait adorns the wall of HEXX, spreading magic by leaving a spell of good fortune for each guest.
The retail shop offers an array of chocolates and merchandise for those of all ages, including HEXX’s line of handcrafted artisan chocolates, displayed by country and harvest date. A selection of “confexxions” that can be purchased by the pound, retro candy and unique brand apparel will be available. A café within the retail area will feature other products made with HEXX chocolate including homemade hot chocolate and an assortment of classic and signature ice cream and sorbet offerings.
The 30,000-square-foot restaurant, chocolate experience and retail store seats more than 300 guests, half on the patio and the other half in the dining room, where floor-to-ceiling glass partitions showcase views of the Strip. The bar features a row of high-top communal tables for eating, drinking and socializing. The warm interior, topped by an eye-catching wine display, was designed by award-winning designer, Todd-Avery Lenahan of TAL Studio. With a foundation of chocolate hues, Lenahan brings comfortable, contemporary upscale décor together with earth tones, rich woods and unique furnishings.
HEXX offers an array of dining options for special events ranging from birthday and bachelorette parties to anniversary celebrations and corporate outings, including a raised dining area and private dining room for larger groups.
