The Cauldron NYC
Magical Pub & Experience
Molecular Cocktail Bar,
& Potions Experience
Follow the cobblestones of New York City's Historic Stone Street to find The Cauldron, a fantasy-inspired pub where magic comes to life with science, technology, and design. Our two-story American Flagship hosts The Apothecary and Pub, our molecular cocktail bar and gastropub, on the ground floor, and Potions Class, our ticketed cocktail experience, on the second floor. Leave the regular world behind, pick up a working magic wand, and prepare to become a kid again.
“Magic is just science that we don’t yet understand.”
Over 21s in the Potions Experience and after 9pm throughout.
The Potions Experience
Molecular Cocktail Experience
The Cauldron Magical Experience is a 1 hr 45 min immersive class in Manhattan, NYC where you wield a working magic wand and use molecular mixology to brew drinkable elixirs. After donning a robe and receiving a magic wand, you are led to an interactive work station where you test out your magic wand by pouring yourself a pint of Hellbroth— our collaboration beer with Sixpoint— or helping of our house mixed cocktail. You then follow instructions to brew two of our molecular potions that change colour, bubble, and smoke. Tickets are from $44.99 per magical being and include a welcome pint/mixed cocktail, two molecular cocktails, and the interactive experience. Ticket does not include gratuity. The experience is largely self-guided, but a potion’s master is on-hand to make sure that you don't poison yourself! Alcohol-free, gluten, and vegan options are all available.
There are also additional drinks available to purchase during the Experience from our Signature Potion’s Menu.
Our potions masters do work on gratuity, so if you have a great time, be sure to show your appreciation!
Our kitchen is unable to serve students while they are in their Potions Class, so if you'd like a meal after all your hard work, book a table at The Pub here.
