I don't get how this is a Harry Potter bar. The staff aren't dressed HP themed and there's no "magical" music. The only thing vaguely HP i experienced was a few of the cocktails having HP themed names. I had a Better Beer (left in...More

Very fun Harry Potter inspired experience. My daughter, a huge Potter fan gave 2 thumbs up. Gets busy fast. Not cheap, but a very good atmosphere to enjoy creative craft cocktails.

Stopped in for a late night drink after dinner, and loved the ambience, menu and service. Even the walk to the bathroom is filled with Potteresque surprises... Enjoyed our cocktails (no food served) and took in the obvious and subtle Hogwarts touches. But if you...More

The place is very small but the atmosphere is amazing. Also enjoyed the drinks and the service by out Irish waiter. Supper friendly and helpful. Only needs a kitchen.

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
