Visitors to the Magic Potions Tavern love our highly-rated potion making experiences. These unique, self-guided cocktail-making activities give you a chance to sample a real-life potions class: brewing your own delicious, magical drinks that bubble and smoke! We provide easy-to-follow spell sheets, with instructions and incantations included, so even beginner wizards and witches will find it easy to follow along!

Options For All

Our cocktail bar provides a range of experiences to suit witches & wizards of all stripes. While our Magical Potion & Smoking Magic Shot comes with a 75 minutes table booking, our Magical Bubbler Cocktail requires less time and comes with table booking, so it's a great activity for visitors to Edinburgh on a tight schedule. We also offer a non-alcoholic potions experience and plenty of other options - including soft drinks, wines, and craft beers.
