The Cauldron is coming to NYC due to high demand and the necessity to add a touch of British branded magic to American shores.
About The Cauldron
The Cauldron is the magical cocktail making experience that took London by storm with over 15,000 wannabe Witches and Wizards joining us for potions and elixirs in just five months!
The atmosphere was awesome the staff was great. There were so many customers we had quite a wait in between task. Suggest hiring additional staff to handle the needs of the customers in a more timely fashion. Also, using a cleaning chemical to make sure the tables are sanitary after each group. Our table was sticky and the vials seemed dirty. Also, the heater was on high and we could not wear the robes because we were sweating. Once the kinks are worked out this will be a very fun activity for everyone. Overall enjoyed the event.
Overall, the experience was ok. I liked the theme and there were some cool tricks with the wand, and everyone was in character, so that was cool. The tricks with the drinks were really fun. I felt it wasn't enough for the price though, especially the peak weekend. I made a few cocktails but I thought there would be more to do. I think it would have been more fun if there was more activity, there just wasn't enough to do since making drinks happens so quickly and then we were just waiting in between to receive them. It would have been more fun if there were games to solve or to encrypt the writing on the magic doors (they show you a key for it so we thought it was a game), that would have been a nice addition to keep people engaged in the experience. Otherwise the experience lagged a bit and I felt a little gypped. Also, I thought I saw on the site that they offer small bites but nothing was offered, not even water.
We had a great time. Truly magical
Such a fun and unique experience!
Overall I was very disappointed that I purchased 2 gift wrappings (what a waste of money) for 2 special birthday girls, when I tried to tell my drink master he dismissed me and told me well get to it later, which he never did until I mentioned it again at the end which he then proceeded to bring 1 shot. If he would have stopped for a few seconds and actually listened to me the experience would have been different. We were celebrating 2 birthday's and the other birthday girl was basically not recognized. Also I called days before to ask about the decipher and invitation and I was told I would be able to get it there and that was also not provided to me. When I purchased the gift wrapping I also included the information in the special notes but i guess no one bothers to read those.
I had a wonderful experience at “The Cauldron”! I came here to celebrate a friends birthday with a group of 7, the Potion Masters were amazing and very helpful throughout the experience, they even gave a special birthday shout out to my friend at the end of the class! Highly recommend for people looking for a fun magical adventure!
Fantastic servers! And the person working the door was wonderful. He really set the mood for the experience.
This was an amazing experience!
The experience would be a lot better if the drinks were better.
The Cauldron was a lot of fun! Totally worth the money for a unique experience and good drinks.
I had a very hard time getting our reservation secured. We were gifted vouchers for the holidays, and I was instructed to contact a Customer Care Wizard to set up our reservation. Our CCW was based in London, and after weeks of miscommunication, I was fed up with the process. After reaching out online to the location in NYC, I was finally contacted by the owner Matt. He did everything he could to make our reservation ASAP. He apologized for the poor service, offered us two free cocktails, and made sure we had a reservation around the time we wanted. We LOVED the experience at The Cauldron. The waitstaff in character was entertaining and added to the experience! We were impressed with the interior, the decorations were amazing, and we loved wearing the robes. We will definitely recommend this experience to our friends!
The Cauldron was very fun. Staff was great and in character. Would definitely recommend.
My friends and I had a BLAST! The employees (potions master and witches and wizards) were so amazing and stayed “in character” and I was OBSESSED with it! I loved the “magic!” However, I wish we had known what was in the drinks we were mixing. Most were fine, but we had someone in our party who was allergic to a specific type of alcohol. Don’t get me wrong, the “dragons tears” was so fun to see on the menu, but I’d love to have known what exactly it was. Same for the herbs. But other than that, magical and amazing!
More cleaning please. Tables were filthy and sticky. Also, the cauldrons on the table don’t actually work. The capes also smelled... but still fun. It’s not worth the money thoZ
Such a fun experience!
This was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had at a bar. Our potions master was phenomenal, the drinks were delicious, and the magic was amazing. I hope to come back someday and maybe see any future additions!
This was awesome, we had a blast. The drinks were great and the lessons were a lot of fun. I cannot wait for friends to visit so I can take them.
It was a lot of fun. All the performers were great! The last drink was my favorite! You do feel rushed and the table was a little too cozy (and we are not big people). They also had nowhere to wait for your reservation and are very rude when you ask. If you are not first in line you will not get to your table on time because they will not start seating until your exact time. Fun but wish there was more time to enjoy and somewhere festive to wait.
It was an amazing experience for my husband and I
Wonderful experience, wonderful staff Unforgettable experience. Had the best anniversary with husband.
Unbelievable experience we will definitley be back.
The environment was great but some of the worst cocktails I’ve had. Consistent feedback that others felt it was the same.
So much fun!!
It was such a fantastic experience. Our guide made the experience magical!!!!
We had a great time! It goes by fairly quickly and since there’s a lot of drinking I would have liked maybe 15 more minutes, as well as some snacks.
