The Wizard's Cauldron
This latest Harry Potter-themed event will see you attend a boozy Hogwarts potions class.
June 25, 2019
UPDATE: DECEMBER 24, 2019 — Turns out muggles are quite keen on leaving their muggle lives behind for a few hours, because The Wizard's Cauldron sessions have been very popular. As such, the event will now continue into next year, until Sunday, January 12. After that, the bar will move onto Melbourne.
In recent times, this fine country has seen Harry Potter brunches, dinners, movie marathons and trivia nights. And that's not to mention the Cursed Child mania that's happening down in Melbourne. 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 Sydney this August 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 and will cost you $49. For that, you'll get a hot mug o' mead and help from a (probably) greasy-haired Potions Master to mix a potion or two for yourself. You may or may not have to take your O.W.L exam after. Either way, there'll be a cash bar so you can celebrate or commiserate your results for further drinks and snacks.
The Wizard's Cauldron will run sessions on random days between August 28 and December 8. Session times vary from afternoon right through to 9pm.
