The Cauldron is a magical pop-up pub where we use technology, science, and design to simulate the magic in fantasy books. A generation of people have grown up reading about magic, and now we have the chance to bring some small part of that into the world.
We are creating a physical location that straddles the line between the magical and non-magical worlds... a place where adult fans can visit, have a pint, and geek out.
We pop up at pubs and markets all over London for short periods and share our location via social media (@thecauldronpub) and our mailing list (you should subscribe). We also host ticketed events at pubs and restaurants, and private events for weddings and company parties. Please contact us if interested.
One day we will have our own permanent pub, but for now we are taking the show on the road and bringing the magic to you! If you like our idea and what we are building, please contribute to our GoFundMe, as it will help us keep the lights on and allow us to iterate upon our technology and guest experience. Our GoFundMe backers will have their names hung in our permanent pub and in the meantime, be on a banner that we bring to our pop-up venues. GoFundMe backers will also be asked to submit a moving photo for our walls :)

Creating magic with Science, Tech, and Design
Our drink menu will be full of magic-inspired cocktails, ales, wines, spirits, and soft drinks. We will create spectacular science-based cocktails that look and behave like potions, elixirs, and substances that are described in fantasy books. Our resident mixologist will be tasked with using the magical elements in our pub to brew drinks that capture your imagination. It’s a boozy mix of molecular mixology, science, and technology.
Our selection of craft beers and ales will be carefully selected and will feature innovative breweries that push the boundaries in Brewing Science. Our signature beer, The Cauldron Ale, will be hand crafted and served in a specialty bottom-filling pint glass. And naturally, all of our beers and ales will be poured using a magic wand! If you represent an innovative brewery, distillery, or winery, please do get in contact!
Visitors to The Cauldron are encouraged to bring with them a copy of their favorite childhood book, which will be donated to a reading classroom in need through a charitable organization. We want to help build robust classroom libraries and support a new generation of young readers.
