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. While I realize that often places like the Chocolate Church are staffed by volunteers, someone needs to ride herd on them so... More

Went to see a Christmas concert here. We have been a couple of times before. We enjoyed the concert and had good seats. The lighting and sound system are very good. In the past it was cold in the winter but they have put a lot of work in and this time it was very comfortable. The church still needs... More

This historic and distinctive former church and enduring local landmark on Washington Street had been repurposed as the Chocolate Church Arts Center and was no longer used as a Congregationalist house of worship. The building was locked up tight on the mid-winter day I saw it while on a photo tour of Bath. It seems it was called “Chocolate” because... More

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

Great acoustics, and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. The only reason why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because of parking. There is no parking lot. You have to just drive around and park on the streets. The entertainment offered is varied and fabulous!

We have gone to concerts here over the years. It is a lovely venue and they get some outstanding performers. Check it out when you visit Maine and see if the box office has anything to interest you.

While I did not visit inside the church or attend events, I wanted to alert travelers to a nice walking tour of the neighborhood. This church is along that walking tour. Visit the city of Bath website to learn more under "walking tour". If you have an hour & enjoy architecture and a little history, you will enjoy a leisure... More
