UPDATED 18 MAY, 2020: The Wizard's Den has now been rescheduled to run from 20 May to 31 October, 2020. The pop-up is operating under restricted capacity and with COVID-19 compliant distancing and hygiene measures.

In recent times, this fine country has seen Harry Potter brunchesmovie marathons, train rides and trivia nights. But are you sick of it? No chance. If there's one thing we know, it's that the demand for Harry Potter will never die — and this latest pop-up, along with the fact that there is a seemingly endless stream of Harry Potter events to come, proves that.

The next piece of mainstream Harry Potter fandom to hit Auckland will be the Wizard's Cauldron. Inspired by the experiences that the gang had in potions class — and hopefully avoiding the botched polyjuice potion episode — the pop-up bar will mix magic and mixology. That's to say, there will be cocktails. Probably with some dry ice and bubbling substances. It'll be sort of like a science class, except you'll wear robes and mix your drinks with a wand. And drink what you mix, of course.

The 'experience' will take 90 minutes on the top floor of Vulcan Lane's Queens Ferry Tavern this May. Tickets are open for registration — and will set you back $45 plus booking fee. For that, attendees get a robe and wand on entry, a hot mug o' mead and help from a (probably) greasy-haired Potions Master to mix a potion or two for yourself.

Challenges are also part of the fun, with participants tasked with unlocking the ingredients for their concoctions. You may or may not have to take your O.W.L exam after — and, either way, there'll be a cash bar so you can celebrate or commiserate your results for further drinks and snacks.
