Nerd Hero Wants To Use Science To Make A Real-Life Wizarding Pub In London

By Jaime Lutz

Many Harry Potter-inspired venues—and by now, there really is quite a handful—end up being a little disappointing because they don't actually feature real magic. But The Cauldron—a proposed London-based "wizarding pub"—might end up coming closest, by using existing technology to mimic the magic of fantasy novels.

Designer Matthew Cortland's proposed pub would feature floating candles, magic wands that can turn on fireplaces and pour drafts of beer, cocktails that resemble potions, and a menu featuring food from the world of fantasy novels. Patrons are even encouraged to read while they're having a pint—the pub will be filled to the brim with books, Cortland promises. And that might be the most magical part of all.
