A witchin' Harry Potter-inspired café is coming to NYC

From the mind that brought you the wonderfully weird Beetle House bar and the Will Ferrell pop-up, Stay Classy New York, comes a café that will make you feel like you're in Harry Potter. In its Instagram photo, Steamy Hallows (riff on "Deathly Hallows") describes its cups as "Coffee Potion," which, okay.

We don't know much about the café, yet. besides that it "serves up delicious coffee and tea potions, huge homemade cookies, in an atmosphere inspired by Harry Potter & Halloween," as written on its Instagram handle. But keen observers are speculating that it will open in Alphabet City, since founder Zach Neil's recently shuttered pop-up Cake Shake was located on Sixth Street between Avenue A and Avenue B.

This isn't the first time the city has welcomed Harry Potter gastronomic ventures. There is The Cauldron pop-up, an immersive bar that lets you use "magic" to craft your own cocktails, but there is also the disappointing Pasta Wiz, which serves speedy pasta dishes in a mildly medieval space. But if none of these are enough to light your wand, we have a full list of the best Harry Potter experiences in the city. 

Per its social media, it should open in its mystery location in less than four weeks.
