Originally based in London, The Cauldron, an immersive experience using science (and magic) to create potions of cocktails and teas, has expanded to many cities across the United States and Europe thanks to its wild success. Now, The Cauldron Philadelphia invites visitors and locals alike to book a visit to experience its new Halloween lineup.


This year, The Cauldron Philadelphia promises an enchanting time for all. Located in Philadelphia’s Gayborhood, The Cauldron features a new and expanded lineup of spooky and festive events this month.

Throughout October, The Cauldron presents its Limited-Edition Potions Experience: The Veil. This twist on The Cauldron’s Potions Experience offers guests a glass of Prosecco upon arrival and ends with the Ectoplasm Shot. This experience features a never-before-seen interactive potion called The Maleficaria, a shimmering peach and bourbon martini served with DIY homemade spheres of dark, blackberry-flavored boba. This drink draws inspirated from the recently released The Golden Enclaves, the final book in The Scholomance trilogy by Naomi Novik.


The Cauldron Philadelphia also brings a brand-new interactive potions menu to the space this fall. The menu includes The Monster Mash, The Summoner’s Siphon and The Forager’s Cauldron. Guests chose two of the three to experience, each unique and festive in their own ways. The Monster Mash is a spooky take on a Scotch Old-Fashioned, while The Summoner’s Siphon is a warm apple and toffee vodka cocktail. Or, opt for The Forager’s Cauldron, an Earl Grey tea and dark rum concoction.
