Event Details


Want a night of magic, fantasy, and mystical foods and beverages? Then this is the dinner for you!



As guests arrive they will enter into our bar "Owlery". Based in a restored industrial carriage house, located in the Filson Historical Society building, with exposed brick walls, concrete floor, and rustic beams with owls perched overhead.

Inspired by the Wizarding World movies, this dining experience allows fans to become fully immersed and experience a new and exciting take on iconic sets from the movie franchise. Guests will start their experience by checking in at the Owl Keeper's station, and immediately after they can head over to the bar to place their orders for magical concoction and elixir styled beverages, both alcoholic and non. Afterwards, fans will be led to a private table to be seated so they can enjoy themed appetizers and get a special visit from our owl keeper and his feathered friends up-close and personal.

While our Chefs prepare dinner, attendees will be led into the main dining space which will be held in the "Black Manor Cafe". Held within the iconic Filson Society Historic Mansion, a separate space located within the Filson Historical Society building. With rich historic architecture, grandiose oil painted portraits, and custom pieces brought in to add into the themed decor inspired by the Black's home in the movies, this space transforms into our dining version of the "Black Manor Cafe". Guests will enjoy 5 courses from Louisville's top Chefs with their take on a dish inspired by the Harry Potter movies, each with a magical flare. Themed music, hidden fan details, and interactive photo ops add to this truly magical experience. 

To conclude the night, attendees can meet the chefs, the makers behind the experience, get sorted into their magical house, and get sneak peaks of other upcoming magical experiences.
