After the films, derivative products and even a theme park in London, the Harry Potter franchise is now tackling the F&B sector by opening a café dedicated to the young wizard in Japan.
The land of the rising sun should soon see hordes of fans of the now mythical Harry Potter saga arrive with the upcoming opening of a café in honour of the famous wizard in the Akasaka district of Tokyo.
The promise of the place is to give customers an immersive experience by bringing them fully into the world created by J.K. Rowling. Indeed, upon arrival, guests will be assigned to the different houses of Hogwarts - Gryffindor, Slytherin, Slytherin and Hufflepuff - just like the wizards on their first day at school.
In addition to the Hogwarts-inspired décor, the café will also feature the food tasted by Harry, Hermione, Ron and their friends. There will be scones filled with jams in reference to each wizarding house, but also a revisit of Platform 9¾ Beans made with beans and toast, roast beef from Dragon's Breath and Sunday roast from Owl Post.
As for drinks, the menu is just as rich and inventive with a list of cocktails named after spells from the saga such as "Expecto Patronum", "Wingardium Leviosa" or "Stupify".
This new spot is sure to attract hundreds, if not more, of Harry Potter afficionados or simply curious visitors. However, if you want to enjoy this unique experience, you'll have to hurry because it will only last a few weeks as part of the promotion of the play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" which will take place on July 8th in Japan.
