Winter is for hibernating with family and friends, participating in the holiday festivities, and enjoying holiday-themed treats and drinks, like hot chocolate for example. If you’re looking for where to get a decadent cup of hot cocoa, then keep on reading. Here are 7 places to get hot chocolate in Las Vegas.
One of the most popular chocolate stores in Las Vegas, in part due to their cactus garden that they decorate with Christmas lights in December and with love-themed decorations during February. The factory itself makes delicious signature chocolate that make perfect stocking stuffers and presents year-round. Grab a hot chocolate during their winter festivities and if you like it, consider buying a gourmet hot cocoa tin that you can take home and keep in the house. Tins cost $30.
The SF-based gourmet chocolate shop now has a Vegas location on the Strip. Enter the Venetian (or they’ll have a pop-up at this year’s Enchant Christmas festival if you prefer) to check out their menu, all featuring delicious coffee or non-coffee chocolate drinks. Go for their classic hot chocolate to warm up on these winter days or a frozen hot chocolate if you prefer. They’ve also got speciality hot chocolate like their Mission hot chocolate with Ambanja, Madagascar chocolate and their European Drinking Chocolate which is an Italian-style chocolate, thick and warm and decadent.
3. Vegas Vickie’s Cocktail Lounge
For those 18 and over, check out Vegas Vickie’s at Circa Las Vegas for an alcholic spin on a hot chocolate. This one’s served with rum and mezcal, hot cocoa, and topped with a toasted marshmellow garnish.
4. Ole Churros
If you’ve never had dippable chocolate before then you haven’t lived. Ole Churros is serving up sugar churros and hot chocolate the Spanish way. A decadent treat in Spain that people often enjoy in the winter time, this hot chocolate is thick and rich, making it the perfect dip for a warm, crunchy churro. What’s better is after you’ve finished your churros, you’re supposed to drink the rest of the hot chocolate. Yum.
The iconic chocolate shop, Ghirardelli at the Linq Promenade is an obvious stop for delicious hot cocoa, so we had to include it on this list.

The Linq Promenade will also have a flurry of snow every 30 minutes for those extra cheery Christmas vibes.
French Chef Guy Savoy’s Brioche is your one-stop shop for hot chocolate and delicious pastries that feel straight out of Paris. Grab a hot cocoa and pair it with a sweet or savory little treat, like a Pain au Chocolat, a savory Quiche Lorraine, or a Nutella Brioche.
This hot chocolate from Dominique Ansel went viral for its blooming hot chocolate, featuring a signature marshmallow placed on top that blooms over the drink like a lily pad. Delicious and aesthetic to the eye. Pair it with a madeleine or a cronut for a perfect sweet pairing this holiday season in Las Vegas.
