Harry Potter fans are always excited for more wizarding world additions to the real world. Whether it’s a theme park or a bar, there’s always something magical about more Harry Potter happening in the Muggle world.
So get excited, Harry Potter fans, a new Harry Potter café has opened in Islamabad, Pakistan!
It’s called the Hogwarts Café and it is spellbinding! With Harry Potter themed décor, cuisine, and merchandise, it’s the perfect spot to sit back, relax and grab a butterbeer (yes, they have that too!).
Brothers and founders Hassan and Haider Khan are, of course, avid Potter fans who grew up with the books.
“Basically we wanted to make the next Potterhead’s dreams come true,” wrote Hassan in a statement. “Our childhood has been spent dreaming of Hogwarts. Turning 11 was a milestone for us while we sat in a corner of our homes with the hope that an owl would tap on our windows with a letter any time; but it never happened.”
Us too, Hassan! As far as we know there are unfortunately no witches or wizards at HelloGiggles (yet…).
Unfortunately, the US Department of State has issued a warning against non-essential travel to Pakistan, so you can’t really plan a leisurely trip to the café unless you’re on your way there already. But you can check out these beautiful and bewitching photos of the café below, and visit the Hogwarts Café Facebook page for some more magic!
