    The service ruined our experience. We ordered a couple drinks and that took awhile. Then no one can back to help us. We had to call a server over. Didn’t end up eating due to lack of assistance

    Such lovely place… I have wanted to come here for so long and finally got an opportunity to enjoy gorgeous potions in a truly magical environment! Our witch was so helpful with recommendations on food and drinks, the Miss Know It All was absolutely delightful… definitely will be making this a regular spot

    Waiter was mumbling and not enthusiastic We had a reservation and got the worst tiny table right by the door so cold air blew in everytime someone came or went. Other seating is 1 big wall couch and not much space between tables. Waited about 10 mins of shivering and waiter..no one came to take order or welcome us. Ended up leaving without out even ordering. Disappointing date night

    We were very disappointed as despite the poor reviews thought it sounded fun. Had a reservation but still waited over 30 minutes. Expected more from the decor, service was poor , drinks were presented in a fun manner but a bit gimmicky and not great, . Music was loud and club like. As per other reviews would go farther with themed music. Would not spend the money as so many other great places in Calgary to go to.

    The food was so so, the drinks expensive and in some cases really awful. The servers had to be reminded to bring napkins, cutlery. There are no written menus and Wi-Fi service low. The background music was too loud and not in keeping with the theme. Only saving grace was the presentation invoking some magical incantations. The menu names are very funny. The staff seemed poorly trained and need some basic instruction. The concept was brilliant, but the follow through needs a lot of improvement.

    Great get together with my friends we loved the theme of the bar and the friendly staff. They allowed us to be seated a little early. The only problem we found was since we used bird scooters it ate up some of our battery power for our phones. While this was our fault it was quite difficult to order drinks when we have no menu. Since it’s all digital now, the waiter did try to print the menu off for us however it didn’t print well. Luckily I had been there before, so I had an idea of what we would enjoy and the waiter gave us great drink suggestions. Would 100% recommend just make sure your phone is charged.

    The decor was amazing, but the fact the they were blasting Akon and Lady Gaga totally killed the magic for me. I think if you're going to do something like this you need to fully commit and make the music match the ambience of your incredible space.

    Unfortunately we arrived for our reservation and were seated by a pleasant waitress but then abounded for 20 minutes without so much as a glass of water. There were two servers and four other tables seated at the time we were there. Didn’t get to try anything as we ended up leaving to a neighbouring establishment where we could get ourselves a cocktail. Hopefully service improves in the future.

    I cannot believe they have that many margarita Flavors. You cant decide which one to try They all sounded so yummy and at $6 for a 1.5 ounce drink it’s a STEAL. I ended up trying 3-4 of them. Not a typical Wednesday night for me that’s for sure lol My favorite was the strawberry rhubarb

    Definitely most Unique lounge I’ve seen in Calgary so far. They went above and beyond to create their “magic” cocktails. Presentation is amazing . Just check the name on the menu - it’s super fun. Prices are fair - pretty much similar to any cocktail lounge in the area. Service staff is friendly and accommodating. Good times

Just ask and they will make you any classic cocktail or shot, there’s something for absolutely everyone. The food is generously portioned and delicious. I will absolutely be coming back to enjoy more memories submersed in this amazing vibe

    Rachelle was positively magical as our potion master for the evening. She brought the fun and the energy that made our girls night out that much better. I highly recommend the potion room experience. Delicious drinks, high energy, and amazing wizard of experience. Any Harry Potter fan will fall in love with the magic that this place brings
