A Chicago tavern is offering a peek into the Wizarding World this Halloween, dressing up as Hogwarts for the holiday.
Hubbard Inn in River North launched on Friday “The 13 Days of Wizardry,” offering up nearly two weeks of themed parties, including “bottomless butter beer brunches, the Happy Hour That Must Not Be Named, a muggle movie marathon, triwizard trivia, a potions mixology class, a witches night” and more.
The venue also plans to host a dinner in the Great Hall featuring a three-course menu paired with cocktails Thursday.
Worth The Trip
Inside, guests will see references to the beloved Harry Potter series, with tributes to Platform 9 ¾, Harry Potter’s bedroom, the Great Hall, the common rooms and shops from Diagon Alley.
Those who purchase a themed drink will also be entered to win a grand prize trip for two to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. The prize will be given out on Halloween.
