Hongdae has to be the best place in Seoul where you can enjoy shopping, a vibrant nightlife and amazingly diverse food.
There is one more exciting that we should all do in Hongdae and that is jumping into the world of Harry Potter by stopping by 943 King's Cross! If you're a Creatrip member, you can enjoy a discount for beverages at the cafe, too.
Whether it's a weekday or weekend, this place is always bustling with patrons (or muggles?). If I had to pick a time, I'd visit on a weekday to conserve a bit of personal space.
Upon entering, you will see the wall filled with wand boxes, which reminds me of the scene where Harry gets his first wand at Ollivanders. The chandeliers, the chess sets, and even the books resemble scenes from Harry Potter!
Ollivanders is one of the most famous photo spots at the cafe, so don't miss your photo-op!
Don't forget to use your Creatrip member coupon to enjoy a 10% discount on non-alcoholic beverages!
The goods like chocolate wands, post cards, condensed Dutch coffee, passport cases all add onto creating the perfect Harry Potter-themed atmosphere.
Be sure to check out the photo spots where you can take magical photos with props including wands, books and brooms and even wizard costumes!
Unfortunately, the people in the paintings do not move as they do in the movies.
943 King's Cross is very spacious, various tables available on the second and third floors. Every corner of the cafe is different, setting the mood for a wide range of Harry Potter vibes.
This corner is what I imagine the area in the dorm where Harry, Ron and Hermione hung out would look like!
Put on your Hogwarts uniform and snap memorable photos! One side note, there's usually a line for the uniforms and photo spots so be prepared to line up.
The 3rd floor is decorated with the theme of the banquet hall, which reminds me of the scenes where Hogwarts students would have meals and get rowdy in the great hall.
I can see that every singe detail of decorations tries to convey the feels of Harry Potter. Nicely done!
Every corner is so stunning, don't you think? It's one of the must-visits when in Hongdae!
After taking a look around the place, I ordered the beer and pink cake. The price may be a bit on the high side for Hongdae, but with an amazing atmosphere along with the 10% off coupon, it was well worth it.
The drinks served here are also really tasty and presentable. You would love the drinks here if you tend to have sweet tooth.
How to Get There
