It is one of the famous instagram photo spots in Hongdae, Seoul. A small reminder that if you want to come and take pictures you have to order at least a drink.
In this Post:
- The atmosphere coupled with detailed decorations doesn’t make just a cafe, but rather an experience.
- You can try free Harry Potter costumes on the fourth floor.
- Each floor is decorated with different themes; lots of things to see and many instagram-worthy photo spots!
- Large and spacious store size, not crowded; can relax yourself in the comfty atmoshphere
Regardless of it being a weekday or the weekend there are a lot of people that come visit this place. I suggest you come here during weekdays to enjoy a more spacious visit here.
You can check out the popular Harry Potter photo spots where you can take photos with wands, books and brooms and even wear a wizard costume!
The entire cafe can be enjoyed with even the details on the stairs as you go upstairs matching the movie. However, the people in the photo will not move but is vivid.
On the second and third floor, there is space to sit at as well as various places to take photos. Every corner of the cafe is a place where you can take photos with each detail of the corner reproduced to meet the details from the movie.
Take a look at the retro-style tables and chairs along with the fireplace and decorations around it.
On weekdays, there are not that many people so you can come to take beautiful photos after you eat as when it is on weekends, the line to take photos are really long. When deciding to go during peak times be prepared to see a lot of people.
In order to allow other people to enjoy the full experience, they also have wizard clothes that you can wear to take photos and leave special memories in. However, don’t take too long as there may be a lot of people waiting!
The 3rd floor is decorated with ‘banquet hall’ theme, which reminds me of the scene where Hogwarts students having a meal in the great hall. I can see that every singe detail of decorations tries to convey the vibes of Harry Potter, and I guess it worked perfectly!
Every corner is beautiful don’t you think? The theme of Harry Potter is well shown in this cafe and is a beautiful cafe that must be visited at least once when you come to Hongdae.
