#85: A City A Story Photo Weekly Contest #26 - Welcome To The Harry Potter Themed Restaurant!

in #citystory2 years ago (edited)

Being a Potterhead, my happiness knew no bounds when I came to know about this awesome Harry Potter Themed Restaurant in Bangalore, India. The place lies in the heart of the city and attracts HP fans for not only their setup or food but also for various events they hold (All related to HP of course!). The name of the restaurant is Two Friends Cauldron.

When you enter the place, you'll be greeted with spiral stairs leading to the top floor with posters of witches and other spooky items hung all across the wall and from the roof.

When you reach the main door, you'll find a set of keys, hung on a holder which reads Alohomora (unlocking charm used in HP).

And once you enter inside, it feels like they've stolen everything from Hogwarts! There are just so many items - brooms, robes, hats, dementors, wands, potions and the list simply goes on! Trust me when I say that it's enough to awaken that little kid inside of you who has grown up with Harry Potter and had once desired to go to Hogwarts :D

Then there were banners hung of all the houses at Hogwarts.

And here are some other items which just lay around. The staff there were very friendly and you could literally pick up any of these to click pictures if you liked. Wear the robes, put on the scarves and the hat, hold a broom and fly away! I, for one, didn't let go of the wands till it was time for me to leave :D

Everywhere I looked, I would find something interesting. And while I was busy ogling, I could hear the theme song being played in the background. Yes! the only songs they play are from the Harry Potter series.

And now comes the best part - FOOD. The menu too was completely based on Harry Potter! It resembled the Marauder's Map. Everything on the menu had a very twisted name(each item had a reference to something from HP). They also had Butter Beer and Chocolate Frogs! We tried so many things and each one of them were delicious.

I've absolutely fallen in love with this place. They often organise quiz nights as well. Participants get a chance to win goodies and gift hampers! Kudos to the owner for maintaining it so well. It's definitely a restaurant I'll always remember and I'm looking forward to visiting it again.

I had no idea anything like this was in India. The Platform made me laugh. I would have to brush up on my Harry Potter before entering quiz night.

haha...The questions are fairly simple so you don't have to worry much :D

India is not the kind of place I would typically associate to Harry Potter, but looking at your many pictures it does look very cool.

I'm a fan myself and have seen the Potter shop in Kings Cross, London, even bought a wand for my daughter. This looks a lot more comprehensive.

The shops in Kings Cross have always been on my bucket list. Looking forward to buying lots of cool stuff from there :)

Wow! Harry Potter restaurant. It's pretty impressive how they turn the theme into a restaurant. I wish it were a real restaurant in Howard School.

Thanks for reading. Yes, it was remarkable to see them convert the theme so beautifully and come up with this awesome place :)

I haven't yet but planning to. There are just so many locations in London to cover. From the King's cross station to the leadenhall market and millennium bridge and a lot more! Looking forward to covering them all soon :)

And of course th HP world outside London!

Yes..Ofcourse... There are just so many places....the top 2 on my list are the castle in Northumberland and the Universal Studio in Florida. 😍

Hiya, just swinging by to let you know that this post made the Honorable mentions list in the Travel Digest #201

I’m definitely one of the potter fans around! Missed the good old days where I indulged myself in the books and enjoyed the adventure through the words by JK Rowling.

That's so true...i miss it too ☺
