On their quest for dairy-free chocolate, SoChatti discovered a technology that unlocks flavor unlike anything you’ve tried before. They just opened their first tasting room in the Circle City Industrial Complex and offer complimentary chocolate tastings. If you have more than four people in your group, please book a reservation here at least 2 hours prior to arrival. If you have a group of four or less, you can show up without a reservation.

3. Enjoy a SWISH performance
