Goblets Of Fire Are Real At This Harry Potter Cafe

When Universal Studios opened up a Harry Potter-themed section in its park, fans got a chance to enjoy glasses of the infamous Butter Beer.

Really, the only way to top that is with an actual Goblet of Fire beverage, which is exactly what this Potter-Themed bar serves up to fans of the book.

Platform 1094 in Singapore transformed its cafe into a full-on Potter wet dream, complete with magic wands, a very Hogwarts-looking dining room, and of course, the Bacardi-infused flaming goblet.

The Harry Potter-based drink looks very similar to a “Backdraft” shot. It requires you to pour a shot of Bacardi that’s lit on fire, into the glass of Blue Curacao. Then you pour the “Magic Powder,” AKA cinnamon, over the top and get treated to a pretty lit fire show.

They have other cool drinks, too, such as a their Truth Venom, Dizziness Tonic, and Elixir of Life, but those aren’t lit on fire, so they don’t get as many props.

If you muggles out there are huge Potter fans, this might be something you’ll want to experience. Plus a trip out of the country is always dope.

This New Harry Potter Cafe In Pakistan Is All Kinds of Magical

Attention lovers of coffee and Harry Potter, your deepest desire is now officially a reality. A Harry Potter-themed cafe has opened up in Islamabad, Pakistan, and already it’s a must-see spot for wizard wannabes everywhere.

Brothers Hassan and Haider Khan are the brains behind the cafe, citing their own lifelong love of the Harry Potter series as inspiration for the business venture.

“Our childhood has been spent daydreaming about Hogwarts. Turning 11 was a milestone for us while we sat in a corner of our homes with the hope that an owl would tap on our windows with a letter any time; but it never happened.”

Now, the brothers are making their childhood dreams (and the childhood dreams of millions of other fans) come true all on their own. No owl post required.

Hogwarts Cafe

The Khan brothers have cultivated a menu of food and drink that is everything a Harry Potter geek wants out of life: you can choose between specialties like Sprout’s Spicy Chicken Pasta, Mandrake’s Tears Steak, the Dragonfire Burger, or the Forbidden Chocolate Cake. For drinks, you can enjoy a refreshing, frothy glass of homemade Butterbeer, Dragon’s Milk, Unicorn’s Blood, and other amazing themed drinks.

It’s all too good to be true.

HP Novelites

Beyond their magical menu, the decor in the Hogwarts Cafe is on point. Excerpts from the books cover the walls, wooden chandeliers hang from the ceilings, and there’s even the entryway to Platform 9 3/4. Try to contain your emotions. The cafe also sells merchandise, including mugs, t-shirts, wands, Time Turners, and so much more.

As if everything about the cafe wasn’t already near-perfect, the Khan brothers are also determined to make the cafe an experience for every customer. They routinely have “sorting drink” contests, with free meals given away as prizes. The cafe owners even made one Muggles’ day by sending her a super legit Hogwarts acceptance letter on her birthday.

And if you’ve been waiting on that exact letter for over a decade, you know what an act of kindness that truly is.

The cafe has already become such a smash hit in Pakistan that two new locations will be opening up in the months to come; one in the Philippines and one in Toronto. If both of those locations are a little too far for your Nimbus to take you, try the Bad Owl Cafe in Nevada instead.
