The Potion Bar

The Potion Bar is a very cool aspect of The Cloak and Wand. Here, you can get some specially brewed potions to enjoy. They offer both cold and hot potions. They’re all quite delicious!

They have a variety of potions on the menu and you can also make your own. If you’re planning on making your own potion, there are 64 different flavors that you can mix and match.

One of the cool things about making your own is they will tell you what kind of potion you ended up making. This is based on what ingredients you chose for your potion. The ingredients, along with the name of the potion, will be printed on your cup when you receive it!

Based on the ingredients I added to my potion, I made a #14, which is a Psychic Potion and they claimed me to be a Clairvoyant (or someone that has supernatural ability to perceive events in the future). Definitely very cool!

The Experience

While shopping and getting delicious potions is great, there’s more to this shop than just those two things. Part of visiting this store is about having a magical experience! The shop is filled with decorations and magical items throughout the store to enjoy.

One of the most notable things you’ll notice when you walk in is a large tree in the left corner of the room. This isn’t any old tree though. It’s the witching tree!

A witching tree is a common occurrence in the magical world. It provides protection from dark forces and can provide help and guidance in mysterious ways.

Another interesting thing you’ll see in the store are portraits that seem to move. These are a part of the haunted portraits gallery at the store. If you pay close enough attention, you might catch the person in the portrait moving!

Another interesting aspect of this store is what’s know as “The Dark Corner” which is located down a hallway on the back side of the wall. This hallway houses unique dark magic items. It can be a bit creepy, so I wouldn’t consider this section family-friendly.
