The disclaimer on the ticket states that The Cauldron is in no way, shape or form affiliated with Harry Potter. And yet, I imagined myself careening through the wall of Platform 9 3/4 as I entered the door of The Cauldron London Magical Cocktail Experience.
As a girl who’s been described as a Disney Princess on more than one occasion, it only makes sense that I’d feel right at home in a unicorn cafe. Savvy businessmen and women are capitalizing on this fun and fanciful trend and these Instagrammable cafés are popping up around the world.
