The Lockhart

No, It’s Not Called “The Three Broomsticks”

The Lockhart, located at the intersection of Dufferin and Dundas Streets in Toronto, might be the world’s first Harry Potter-inspired bar. The bar is named after an infamous professor of Defence Against the Dark Arts and uses a stag, Potter’s Patronus charm, as its insignia.

The bar has gone viral since its opening, and has attracted visitors from across Canada—some of whom dress as characters from the series. The most memorable so far came dressed as Bellatrix Lestrange, Narcissa Malfoy, and Ron Weasley—dressed in a Quidditch uniform.

Co-owner and mixologist Paris Xerx has created a beverage menu filled with allusions to the Harry Potter books, including “The Shacklebolt,” made with house-made ginger beer and infused spiced rum. No word on whether there’s butterbeer on draft.
