If you grew up reading and watching Harry Potter, as an adult you can now enjoy a themed bar if you are in the city of Toronto. As of September 5th, The Lockhart is open for business at Dufferin and Dundas. Named after one of Harry's most inept Defense Against the Dark Arts professors, the joint offers specialty cocktails and a tapas-style menu.
The cocktail "elixirs" are made with house bitters and are "custom infused." The diverse food offerings cover a range from brunch to late-night snacks, so there is something for Torontonian Potterheads at any hour. The Lockhart also serves coffee sourced from Lake Minnetonka.
The themed bar isn't over the top or too overtly Harry Potter-inspired. This makes it a great spot even for those who don't believe in magic.
