The Cauldron pub in London prides itself on turning an ordinary bar night into something resembling a Hogwarts potions class. Now, this magical pub is bringing its fantasy-themed mixology to New York City with The Cauldron Magical Cocktail Experience, an immersive class that lasts an hour and 45 minutes where you use a magic wand and molecular mixology to brew drinkable elixirs.
When participants arrive at the Manhattan venue for the special class, they will don a wizard robe, a wand that allows them to pour beer without using their hands, a cauldron to create their “potion,” and all the necessary tools. And, if you’re interested in taking this class but know nothing about molecular mixology, don’t worry, you don’t have to be an expert to create some pretty cool beverages. Even those of us with no magical blood will notice drinks changing as they’re being made — emitting smoke, bubbles, and transforming in color.
The New York City installment of The Cauldron opens on September 13th, and will remain open for four months. While it’s only planned as a pop-up experience right now, the owners hope to make it permanent if it proves popular. Cauldron classes cost $44.99 for each ticket ($54.99 in peak hours) and you can purchase tickets through their official website.
