I love a cafe that commits to it’s theme 100%. This 4-storey cafe is an experience somewhat akin to Universal Studios. Every corner of this cafe eminates Harry Potter, from the wall of wands to the owl cages to the creepy dementor on the 2nd floor… Each floor has it’s own mini-theme, such as the grand banquette hall, the dormitory or the tavern. The tavern is a bar that’s open in the evenings which we didn’t get the chance to try, but we did have the chance to to have some magical coffee and butterbeer! The drinks were really well-made and while the coffee is fairly average quality for Korea the menu is really imaginative and you can try some really unique drinks here.
We chose to spend most of our time on the dormitory floor because we could have our drinks on one of the beds and it was really fun and casual. At the time it was drizzling rain all day and it made Seoul feel a little alike London~
Also, if you know what your Hogwarts house is it’s time to dress up! There are wizard robes and scarves that you can wear and take pictures in. Both times that I’ve been here the robes were high in demand and you usually to wait a while until they’re free.
The only thing this cafe is missing is Dobby. But I understand that’s not possible hehe

These raccoons were sooo cute! This cafe is located by Kyungsung University station (경성대역) by exit 5. We had gone to this cafe during the evening, which was right when the raccoons were starting to wake up. And boy were they energetic! We had bought smoothies at first and after we finished them we went inside their play area with some treats and immediately we had their attention. These raccoons seem a little overweight ( I think they get treated a little too much) but they also have a really nice play area with lots of places where they can climb and roam around.
These raccoons acted like excited little kids and treated the blankets that we brought in like toys. Originally the blankets are supposed to help protect your clothes but I found if I moved it around at all I would have a raccoon leaping at it trying to wrestle with it. It was so adorable but I soon found out wearing tights to a place like this is a bad idea, because these raccoons have sharp claws!
The worker there clearly loves animals and she spent a lot of time playing with them and talking about them with us. It was nice to hear about each raccoons’ unique personality 🙂
The drinks are a little pricy (around 6000 – 7000원), but the price includes the entrance fee too so it’s definitely worth it!
