We don't know why it took so long for there to be a Harry Potter-themed bar, but now there is one.
The Lockhart, which recently opened in Toronto, is a place where all Muggles are welcome. While the bar is definitely HP themed, it's subtle rather than kitschy.
"Without knowing any of the Harry Potter stuff, you already will think of this as a cool bar. You'd come here and see the stag's head on the wall and go, 'Wow, I love that,' but a Harry Potter fan might say, 'That's a Patronus,' " co-owner Paris Xerx told Now Toronto.
The Harry Potter hints are on the subtle side, but they're definitely there. They've got the books, Harry Potter POP! dolls and a Deathly Hallows symbol hiding somewhere.
One of the most magical touches may be the neon sign that reads "all was well." To a non-Harry Potter fan, it's just a pretty sign with a nice saying. To everyone else, it's the last line in the final Harry Potter novel.
You can order from the "Potions and Elixirs" menu at the bar that was designed to look like an apothecary. Of course, no Harry Potter place would be complete without a little mystery. So, the owners have teased that one of their drinks has such an obscure reference, you'll get a free one if you correctly guess it. Naturally, Reddit users have already started tackling the challenge.
So what are some of the delicious "potions" you can expect to see on the menu?
