Our Visit

Today, I visited "943 King's Cross," a Harry Potter-themed cafe located in Hongdae.

I passed by this place before and saw foreign tourists lining up to take pictures riding on this broomstick. It's a very popular spot among foreign visitors in Hongdae! If you go early, you can avoid the crowds and take pictures without having to wait in line, so keep that in mind.

943 King's Cross has a total of eight floors, from the basement first floor to the seventh floor, and visitors can explore five floors from the basement first floor to the fourth floor. The basement first floor is decorated as a wizard's hut, the first floor is a counter, the second floor is a wizard cafe, the third floor is a banquet hall, and the fourth floor is a dormitory, each themed differently.

1F: Potion making / Kitchen

As soon as I entered the entrance, I saw a staircase that reminded me of the room under the stairs in Harry Potter. The bookshelf on the right was filled with magic wands.

On the left side of the counter, there is a gift shop where you can purchase Harry Potter-related merchandise.

On the right side of the counter, there are cakes and beverages displayed in a refrigerator. There are various types of cakes, from creatively decorated cakes to basic cakes, and they all look amazing. The cakes are definitely a must-try!

The menu is available in both Korean and English, and you can choose your drink by referring to the menu. By the way, you don't have to worry if you're not good at Korean because communication in English is possible at 943 King's Cross. The editor ordered Dragon Leg, Wizard Chocolate, and Wizard Green Tea.

I went to check out the Wizard's Cabin on the basement floor, and even before going down the stairs, there were various photo zones decorated, so it was great for taking pictures and enjoying the sights.

B1: Wizard's Cabin

From the stairs leading down, there were vines of wood wrapped around, giving a feeling of a cabin. It felt like this before entering Hagrid's cabin.

As I was going down the stairs, I thought of Hagrid's cabin, but when I entered inside, I remembered the bar where Harry Potter and his friends were drinking butterbeer.

At the entrance, there were candles spreading a mysterious atmosphere.

Inside, it was designed like a cocktail bar, and when I turned around, there was a ghost wandering on the screen, making me feel like I had stepped into a scene from a Harry Potter movie.

943 Kings Cross has an elevator, making it convenient to move around. Now, I'll take the elevator to the 2nd floor!

2F: Wizard's Cafe

The 2nd floor is decorated like a real cafe, and at each end, there are also photo zones implemented.

3F: The Banquet Hall

Finally, the long-awaited banquet hall! Personally, this place feels the most like a scene from a Harry Potter movie. Shall we go in and take a look?

On one side, the space was decorated like Gryffindor dormitory. The books on the bookshelf were all original versions! I recommend taking a picture while sitting on the rocking chair after setting the concept.

When I see this picture, what comes to mind is the dining hall where Harry Potter and his friends were eating. It's implemented so similarly to the movie that as a Harry Potter fan, my heart was pounding heavily.

This is a table right behind the banquet hall table, and it looked like the desks of Hogwarts professors.

4F: Dormitory

On the fourth floor, there is a dormitory where you can experience wearing the Harry Potter cloak.

Finally, the fourth floor is the dormitory, and there's a Harry Potter cloak-wearing experience prepared for you. Speaking of Harry Potter, Christmas comes to mind again, and if you put on the cloak and sit in the photo zone, you'll take a really nice picture!

The cloak fitting has a time limit of 3 minutes, probably due to the high demand during peak hours or weekends.

Make sure to wear the cloaks and take pictures like we did in the picture above.

FOOD: Best Set

We ordered the Best set and chose Wizard's Chocolate and Wizard's Green Tea as drinks. Wizard's Chocolate and Green Tea are signature drinks of 943 Kings Cross with a magic hat on top as the key point.

Dragon Red is a dish made by deep-frying a whole turkey leg, and it has a slightly salty and savory flavor that would pair well with beer.

The Wizard's Chocolate and Green Tea are drinks with a chocolate hat on top, which tastes similar to the Starbucks blended series.

It sounds like the sauce that comes with the Dragon Red is a combination of mustard and steak sauce, creating a balance of tanginess from the mustard and sweetness from the steak sauce that complements the savory meatiness of the dish.

It also comes with a baguette and you can make your own sandwich by putting the meat and pickles on top of it! The pickles help balance out the rich flavor of the meat and eating it with bread makes it a satisfying meal in itself :) If you're a Harry Potter fan, this cafe is a must-visit. It's a great place for a unique and fun experience with friends or a romantic date. Have a great time at 943 King's Cross!
