This year alone, this fine country has seen Harry Potter brunches, dinners, movie marathons and trivia nights. And that's not to mention the Christmas feast that's happening in Sydney next month. 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 the next Fantastic Beasts film comes out this month, seems to prove that.
The next piece of mainstream Harry Potter fandom to hit Sydney and Melbourne will be the Cauldron Bar. 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. While details are vague for now, it sounds like 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, too, of course.
The 'experience' will take 90 minutes and be mostly self-guided. You may or may not have to take your O.W.L exam after.
The Cauldron Bar will pop up in Sydney and Melbourne in April 2019. Tickets aren't on sale yet, but you can register here.
