Potion Making 2.0

20% Off Promo for Return Visitors to The Cauldron NYC!


The Cauldron Magical Experience is a 1 hr 45 min immersive class in Manhattan, NYC where you wield a working magic wand and use molecular mixology to brew drinkable elixirs.  After donning a robe and receiving a magic wand, you are led to an interactive work station where you test out your magic wand by pouring yourself a pint of “Benelovent Magic”— our new collaboration hazy pale ale with Sixpoint, which is brewed with Agrimony, Lemon, Peel, and Ginger — or a helping of our house mixed cocktail or mocktail poured from the maw of a magical creature. You then choose two potions to brew from our range of molecular potion options, each of which have different traits and effects. For return customers, tickets are from $35.99 per magical being and include a welcome pint/mixed cocktail/mocktail, two molecular cocktails, and the interactive experience. Ticket does not include gratuity. The experience is largely self-guided, but a potion’s master is on-hand to make sure that you don't poison yourself!  Alcohol-free, gluten, and vegan options are all available.  

There are also additional drinks available to purchase during the Experience from our Signature Potion’s Menu.

Our potions masters do work on gratuity, so if you have a great time, be sure to show your appreciation!

Our kitchen is unable to serve students while they are in their Potions Class, so if you'd like a meal after all your hard work, book a table at The Pub here. Magical Feast pairing for groups of 6+ can be booked here.

Book Drive

Visitors to The Cauldron are encouraged to bring with them a copy of their favorite childhood book, which will be donated to a reading classroom in need. We proudly work with Teach for America in NYC to collect books for classroom libraries for under-resourced schools. Our co-founder got his start as a literacy teacher with TFA, and we want to help build robust classroom libraries and support a new generation of young readers.
