One Magical Evening

This St Kilda bar is hosting a magical party set to rival the Yule Ball.

UPDATE: AUGUST 9, 2018 — This event was originally published under the name Welcome to Hogwarts — A Magical Evening of Mischief. Event organisers have since changed the name of the event due to copyright infringement. This article has been updated to reflect that.


If you've always wanted to hop aboard the Hogwarts Express — or at least pretend to — the Prince Bandroom is celebrating everything that encapsulates the wondrous world of Harry Potter with an adults-only shindig themed around that one thing every 90s kid wishes they had: magic.

Apart from drinking and dressing up (press your robes in advance), there's plenty of other stuff going on. You'll be partying in spaces fit only for wizards — think the Great Hall and The Forbidden Forest. And if you need help getting around, you'll be given a map upon entry.

Take a Defence Against the Dark Arts class from a magician, find out your fortune (will you get a letter soon?), get snapped in the photobooth with glasses and wizard hats, and just generally magic the night away.

Tickets cost $28.60 — and we suggest you get in quick, as the Brisbane event sold out in a matter of days.
