The Muggle struggle is real. Don't throw your invisibility cloak in your closet just yet: A spot just Lumos Maxima'd in DuWest. At first glance you wouldn't think that The Lockhart is a Harry Potter–themed bar; that detail reveals itself only on close inspection. The modern apothecary-style bar serves fine bites and smooth cocktails in a space injected with subtle references for wannabe Hogwarts alums: a few books, a neon sign, a hidden Deathly Hallows symbol. Try the Befuddlement Brew when you want to cast a spell and the sliders for satisfying nosh. If you can identify the drink named from an H.P. reference so obscure even J.K. Rowling would be confused, you'll get it on the house.


A bar paying subtle homage to Harry Potter.
Superb cocktails and elevated bar bites.
