A Harry Potter-themed café, Mandrakes: A Magical Experience has opened. Located in Ormskirk, England, the café owners hope to bring a “little bit of magic” to the town. Opening day saw a queue out the door, with so many people that the café quickly became overrun.
In addition to themed food and drink, the coffee shop will host private events, parties, workshops and quiz nights, all contained within the various themed rooms. Some of the themed rooms are kitted out to look like a potions lab or a herbology space, with even the Hogwarts Express making an appearance.
The café also stocks official Harry Potter merchandise so avid fans can take some memorabilia home.
