The Chanler at Cliff Walk has announced their next seasonal venture, and it has to do with arguably the greatest sandwich ever invented – peanut butter & jelly!

Starting April 1 (through May 19), the hotel will transform their outdoor terrace into a Gourmet Peanut Butter Jelly & Wine Pop-Up Lounge.

The space will provide a “porch-like” atmosphere with Adirondack chairs, tables and other furniture for guests to relax and socialize.

Available daily from 12 PM until 5 PM, The Chanler will offer uniquely designed PB&J combinations with suggested wine pairings (other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available including milk).

Complimentary WIFI access will be provided on the terrace. Patrons can also order items “to go” if they prefer to enjoy a sandwich while walking along the cliff walk.
