Why are all things witchy and wonderful relegated to October only?
The Mystical mountains in BC are hiding a place called The Black Cauldron Bar in Nelson. It’s an apothecary bar with witchy vibes all year long and their specialties are enchanting charcuterie plates and herbaceous cocktails.
Their menus are full of boozy potions, brews, elixirs, and zero-proof drinks poured alongside share plates and charcuterie.
You can even book a tarot reading on Tuesdays to get guidance and enhance your magical experience.

“The concept is a magical lounge with an apothecary bar and a kitchen focusing on charcuterie-share plates,” the owners shared with Daily Hive.
“Our bar and kitchen are constant mixology and culinary labs trying to churn out the best creations using as much locally sourced or foraged ingredients as possible. And this is a whole restaurant and community effort as we work with local herbalists and growers as well,” they said.
They even have special haunting hour and witching hour deals, too. Around Halloween, things get especially magical here. On Friday, October 29 they’re doing a Drag dinner and DJ Show.
On Saturday, October 30 they’re doing a School Of Witchcraft event where you can gather with the coven to celebrate Samhain. It will be guided and taught by local witchy folks and the night will go on with another DJ show and fire act.
Then on Sunday, there are two Burlesque shows and a charity pumpkin carving competition.
