VIP Experience

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our venues and events. The safety of our guests, staff, and artists is of paramount importance, and in continued response to Governor Wolf's order, effective March 19, 2020 until further notice, to prohibit the operation of all businesses that are not life-sustaining, we have come to the extremely difficult decision to suspend additional Pittsburgh Cultural Trust events, extending through June 14.

As a result, The Chocolate Bar has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 14. Previously purchased tickets will be valid for the rescheduled date. Ticket buyers were contacted by email on April 7, 2020. Please check your email for ticket options from the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust ( We appreciate your response within two weeks. If we have not connected with you, please Contact Us.

All that glitters is better than gold – it’s CHOCOLATE. You’re invited to a decadent evening of glamour, groove, and grandeur at the one and only Chocolate Bar.

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust invites you to enjoy chocolate-infused creations from Pittsburgh’s finest chocolatiers and restaurants with entertainment throughout the historic Benedum Center.
