Harry Potter fans, it’s time to grab your broomsticks because New Zealand getting its very own wizard-inspired bar.

The Wizard’s Den will be serving up Harry Potter themed cocktail potions for a limited time only.

How magical is that?!

Originally scheduled to appear earlier this year before the Covid-19 restrictions, the pop-up bar is now set to wow patrons from this week through until the end of October.

It will feature a fun 90-minute cocktail class for you to "mix your own potion and create new spells and magical beings" - inspired by Harry Potter's time at Hogwarts. Except instead eye-of-newt in your brew, you’ll be using dry ice and bubbly drinks.

The bar is apparently "created for all fantasy and magic lovers, a mystical place where magic and imagination roam free."

The experience - which has already made its way to Syndey and Melbourne in Australia - will set you back between $45 and $55 and includes a glass of mead or mulled wine, and a couple of alcoholic potions, along with your own robes and wands while you take part. 

The Wizard's Den is an Auckland-based event, taking over The Queens Ferry Tavern from May 20 through until October 31.

Make sure you get in quick because tickets are limited, and with early-bird tickets available now.
