The Lockhart, as a reference to the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor in the "Harry Potter" film franchise, opened its doors on Saturday and offers friendly vibes, reports ew.com.
With subtle references to J.K. Rowling's magical tale through the décor and with innovative drink names like The Shacklebolt, the bar aims to be equally appealing.
"Without knowing any of the 'Harry Potter' stuff, you already will think of this as a cool bar. You'd come here and see the stag's head on the wall and go, 'Wow, I love that,' but a 'Harry Potter' fan might say, 'That's a Patronus'," bar's co-owner Paris Xerx said to Now Toronto.
The true fans of the film will also appreciate the bar's neon sign, a heart containing the closing words of the final Potter novel -- "All was well."
The film series, with actors Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson along with others, took over the world with its mystical and gripping story line.
Rowling is currently working on the script for "Harry Potter" spin-off "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" which is scheduled to be released in the US on November 18, next year.
