The Cauldron NYC

Sep 10, 2019New York City

It’s not every day you get to relive a magical experience in a whole new way. When we heard that The Cauldron (which was originally just a tiny pop up bar in NYC for a limited time) was now upping the ante and creating a new master potions class, Potion Making 2.0, we jumped at the chance to experience it first!
Head to The Cauldron NYC for a Magical Experience
We ordered The Doom From The Bar
It has been almost a full year from our first trip to The Cauldron, and we were excited to see the new space they created from the old Bier House. We went early to enjoy dinner before class and explore the updated pub. This English style magical pub will delight all who enter; we witnessed many squeals of delight from adults ready to feel like children again in this imaginative place! The tree of life gave the most surprise as it would pour beer and cider with a mere flick from your interactive wand, all the while the wand keeps track of your tab which you can later view in a magic mirror. Many tricks are scattered around the pub and it was so much fun to sit and eat while watching guests scurry around to discover the magic.
Once it was finally time for class we headed upstairs to continue our potions education, grabbed our wand, and donned our cloaks. The 2.0 class includes a drink of choice from three magical fountains and two molecular cocktails. You actually get to choose the two cocktails you wish to make from a list of four, a fun new twist from the original class where everyone made the same drinks. This evening we chose to create the Botany Brew and Time Transfixed.
The advanced level of the class was such a treat for those who took the first class looking for something new. They do not offer Potions 1.0 any longer however and all new students jump ahead to Potions 2.0; though the Potions Masters are happy to help if you get stuck. We even ran into our old Potions Master Leo and enjoyed a chat about the new upgrades to the syllabus and exciting adventures of the Cauldron.

Those of you who thought you missed your magical chance to enter the mystical world of cocktail potion making are so lucky! Catch your broom, apparate, use the floo, or get here however you can, just hurry up to enjoy the experience that is The Cauldron! Remember, even though The Cauldron is no longer a pop up, you must still reserve your potions class well in advance! The pub below is open for walk ins and worth it if you want a taste of the magic without the price tag of the potions class experience.
As always,
your magically inclined PLIs, (visited September, 2019)

The Cauldron | Harry Potter Pop Up Bar

47 Stone Street, New York, NY 10004

Los Altos Authentic Miami Speakeasy

Finally a Miami hidden bar that oozes authenticity, class, and just the right amount of flair. Los Altos authentic Miami Speakeasy is a great stop when you want to avoid the club hype on South Beach.

Bodega Grungy Hidden Miami Speakeasy

Oh Miami, you were just not our cup of tea unfortunately. We really had been looking forward to was Bodega Taqueria y Tequila. The front part of the restaurant was awesome, Bodega Grungy Hidden Miami Speakeasy through the hidden entrance, not so much.

Slippbarinn | Hip Reykjavik Bar

While not exactly hidden, this hip Reykjavik bar with amazing food and original craft cocktails was the last drinking stop of our Iceland trip.

Pablo Discobar | Reykjavik’s Retro Hidden Bar

For a fun and quirky time, with great 80s music, and shining lights, don’t miss out on Pablo Discobar, Reykjavik’s Retro Hidden Bar. This slightly hidden bar up on the third floor of Burro restaurant in Reykjavík Iceland, has all the charm and spunk one could need in a night.

Dutch Kills | NYC Speakeasy

When you locate Dutch Kills in Long Island City, it will not look like you’d expect. There is a little neon “bar” sign outside of a grubby dive bar looking wall. If the sign is on you can go on in and find a completely different atmosphere inside.

NYC Joints that Missed the Mark

For a city that has such a vast list of secret drinking dens, they can’t all be high brow. We have so many speakeasies picked to visit each trip to New York that we’ve had to become quite selective with where to stay and spend at least $17 a cocktail.
