OWNERS of a wizard-themed cocktail bar are celebrating a successful launch – but still need a name for their unicorn.
The Cauldron at Clarence Gardens, Brighton, serves cocktail masterclasses on ‘potion making’ alongside mystical magic props for drinkers to have fun with.
The magic bar boomed in the first few days of trading last weekend, with curious customers wanting to learn more.
But the one thing that drew the most attention was the cauldron-dwelling unicorn dispensing drinks from its mouth.
“The decision on what we’re going to call our unicorn in our venue is yet to be decided – the VIP guarding and pouring one of our magical cocktails,” said the bar’s co-founder Matthew Cortland.
“We’ve had some good suggestions so far and will encourage the public to take a poll via our Instagram.
“We are so grateful that our opening weekend has brought so much excitement to Brighton.
“We met our new neighbors and invited a handful of influencers and media to have a sneak peek at our potions experience, molecular cocktail bar and beer garden.
“We see ticket sales increasing by the day and look forward to our first full month of operations in this wonderful city and to getting ready for one of our most iconic times of the year – Halloween.”
Described by Matthew as “the gateway to the magical world,” the venue also offers non-alcoholic options for families and children.
The bar’s signature cocktails include The Wizard of Menlo Park, a ginger cocktail that shoots plumes of smoke into the air, Ode to Mullica, a bourbon maple cocktail served in a smoke bell jar, and The Blob, an aloe- and tequila cocktail with an expandable bowl – reminiscent of the 1950s American science fiction horror film of the same name.
The beer garden will also offer ten types of beer, including Guinness, cider, lager and IPAs.
