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 NYC
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!
Had an excellent time, even if things were changed for COVID. Had a blast mixing potions and playing with the magic wand wand. Food was great tasting!
service was excellent but SLOW. They appear to be short staffed at this time.
This pub is a really great idea but bad executed. It’s very pricey for the service you received and received food from the next door restaurant. The place is understaff so food and drinks was very delayed, so for the limit time they give you you barely have time for the drinks that come with the experience package. Our server had an amazing attitude to work under those conditions that you could see her running between tables.. The menu was never explained so it was a surprise that when our food came to the table it was brought in bags like if was “Uber eats” because it was coming from next door restaurant.
The space was great and making the potions was super fun! One of the main issues we ran into was that we went over our allotted time at the table, but service was a bit slow and we didn't get the ingredients for our final potion until about 5 minutes after the end of our reservation. We also paid for 3 people to do the potion experience, but with one member of our party not drinking alcohol they didn't bring us ingredients for 3 people when one potion couldn't be made as a cocktail and mocktail simultaneously. We ended up not getting a drink that we paid for and were a bit disappointed by that. Overall, we had a great time and would recommend it to others, especially Harry Potter fans and groups looking for a fun celebration!
Seth was the best host ever! Seth and Leah made it the best birthday celebration for my best friend and I! We had the most magical time ever. We felt welcomed and taken care of. We are coming back!
Hi Paula - we love hearing you had such a great time! We look forward to welcoming you again sometime.
Awesome experience and very friendly staff!
We had a blast and it was so well done, well organized and delicious. Thank you for a magical time!
Had a great time with my friends!! Hope I wasn't too much to handle for the potion masters, though!! ❤️
my husband and i had a wonderful experience would love to come back staff was wonderful great atmosphere.
Great experience! Me and my friends had so much fun! The staff really makes the experience so much fun, they were all great!
Everyone there was fantastic, especially Josh and "Not a Leprechaun" :). The cooks did a wonderful job with our food; the rib sandwich was divine! The only downside is that we don't live closer! Definitely worth a trip to NYC if you need a reason to visit :D
Hi Kat, thanks for your feedback! We love hearing that you had such a great time. :)
Great experience. Will be back.
I went for Thursday bingo and had such a good time. Some of the best fries I've had in a while. Staff was great, very friendly and helpful
Loved the atmosphere and especially the service. Everyone was so friendly and attentive regardless of who’s table needed assistance. The general manager was especially amazing and literally made our experience as memorable as it was for my son and I. The only thing that I would like to recommend and see done differently is when someone purchases the family friendly ticket (as I did and brought my 11 year old son) that their be a kid friendly potion menu that includes drinks that would appeal to kids. As much as I enjoyed the adult version of the two potions we created, the kid friendly, non alcoholic version was not appealing at all to my 11 year old so. He was amazed and absolutely loved the potion making portion but the taste? Not at all. Having drink options that are more kid-friendly, at least when someone purchases the family friendly ticket, (and I’m only talking taste wise - like strawberry, watermelon, grape flavors) which still smokes and bubbles would make the ticket price for a family friendly ticket, more in line with what my expectations were. Other than that, I’d come back again with another adult but not with my child, not until there are more kid friendly drinks available.
Hi Heather - thanks so much! Our Family Friendly ticket is still fairly new, so your feedback is greatly appreciated. If we can help you with future bookings, just email into [email protected] :)
I canceled two days after I made reservations they wouldn’t refund my money but still had the nerve to call and see if I was still going, be more organized if I canceled my reservations and your team had no idea! But thanks for basically stealing $153 of mine!!!
Hi Angelica - if we can do anything to help you, please email into [email protected]
Perfect ambience, even better potions! :)
My only problem with the service was the reception. When we arrived, though it was past our reservation time, I could not spot the host/hostess anywhere. I waited by the door and during that time a lot more people arrived and began to crowd the area.
Hi Jordan - thank you for your feedback, it's greatly appreciated. If we can help you with anything moving forward just email into [email protected]!
Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Definitely coming back!
The potions experience was so much fun for my friends and I. We’re in our mid-twenties and are huge HP fans so this was right up our alley. The atmosphere is beautiful and the drinks were delicious. The only thing I wasn’t a huge fan of was our server, he seemed kind enough but kind of scoffed at us when we didn’t order any food or extra drinks with our experience. However the other staff were all really friendly and added some comedy to our time at The Cauldron. We had a blast!
Hi Emily, thanks for your feedback! Some potions masters choose a smug character to play while interacting with guests, but that's no excuse for making guests feel unwelcome. We'll flag this with management to be sure that this is ironed out with staff! If you need help with anything else please email into [email protected] :)
This was so much fun and the staff were all incredibly kind!!
The experience was one of our favorites in NYC! Such a unique experience & had us laughing & oooing & awing like kids. Completely recommend!! Staff was friendly & personable & made the experience complete.
Loved both of our potion masters. The only thing we would have loved 4 potion options instead of just 3. Still truly enjoyed our time!
Didn’t really like feeling scammed for our check. The waiter, Josh, immediately gave us a check with the gratuity added, and we felt as though that should not be the immediate check that we receive. Overall, beautiful experience and we are extremely grateful for Nick and the experience that he provided us.
Hi Robert, thanks for your feedback! We really appreciate it. If we can help you with anything specific, please email into [email protected] :)
Such a great experience! Loved the drinks and the food we ordered was great.
We had a great experience! And the waitstaff was beyond wonderful
