The Cauldron Is Coming To Cast A Spell On The Liffey

Internationally acclaimed and popular wizard themed cocktail experience, The Cauldron will arrive in Dublin this July for a 3 month stint.

Following two successful pop-ups in London and New York City that welcomed over 100,000 aspiring witches and wizards and a new venue in Edinburgh, The Cauldron will be coming to The Liquor Rooms at 5 Wellington Quay.

Tickets are on sale now for the magical boozer for Harry Potter fans which allows guests to fully immersive themselves into a world of magic with cloaks, working wands and drinks.

According to a press release: The Cauldron at The Liquor Rooms  is a one hour and forty-five minute ticketed class that centres on the idea of using science and technology to bring concepts from fantasy novels and magical lore to life.  Upon arrival, guests receive a robe and working magic wand, which is imbued with technology and used to pour helpings of The Cauldron’s collaboration craft beer, cocktail or mocktail”

Guests use the equipment at their wand-interactive workstation, which includes a cauldron, mixing utensils and fresh and bottled potion-making ingredients to brew two drinkable potions that change colour, bubble, and smoke. Classes include 3 drinks, all materials and supplies and start at just €29.99 per ticket for over 18s only.

The Cauldron began as a Crowdfunding project in 2017 whilst co-founder Matthew Cortland, a George Mitchell Scholar and former reading teacher, was living in Dublin, working at a tech startup, and finishing his master’s degree in Creative Digital Media at the Dublin Institute of Technology.

Cortland, a former moderator of the Dublin Startup Digest, moved to London to set up the business and is now returning to Ireland to bring the product home.  “This concept has such strong roots in Irish Design and individuals in Dublin– from our illustrator to our wand maker to our key advisors.  We even shot our first video in The Gravediggers in Glasnevin, a location that was a major source of inspiration for the interior design vision for The Cauldron.  Without the assistance and contribution from these people, I’m not sure that we would have ever gotten to this point,” said Cortland.  “I’m incredibly grateful, he added.

Visitors to The Cauldron’s classes are encouraged to bring a copy of their favorite childhood book, which will be donated to a reading classroom in need in Dublin.
