Church built in the late 1800's that now has concerts. Intimate setting and great acoustics. Melissa Manchester concert was magical. Plenty of free street parking.

I appreciate that the Chocolate Church is bringing a variety of musicians and artists to Bath and these evenings are open to the public - family fun - good times - thanks to Jen!

As we walked by we heard some interesting music. Went in -- a band setting up. We liked the sound (folk/blues) a lot. Was a free concert (was scheduled for outdoors but the threat of storms forced a last minute change of venue. Acoustics were good.We loved the band.

Last Saturday we made a special trip to the Chocolate Church to see the photography invitational exhibition. Gallery hours were listed in the story in the local newspaper, but the place was closed up...no sign of life anywhere.

I have been to the Chocolate Church on numerous occasions for musical performances. Despite the age of the facility, the accoustics are really good and performers seem to enjoy coming there. It is a small, intimate environment and because of its size it really doesn't matter where your seat is actually located, you will always have a clear view of... More
