Welcome to The Leaky Cauldron, a tiny, pop-up Harry Potter bar in Dallas. It opens Thursday, Aug. 8, just before the Harry Potter fan convention LeakyCon hits Dallas.

The Dallas Morning News got a sneak peek inside the bar, where we found a wizard's wonderland. There are love potions, wizard's glasses and tons of magical photo opps.

Let's start from the front: The bar is located at 1806 McMillan Ave. in Dallas (and formerly known as The Whippersnapper). Does The Leaky Cauldron look like the pub in the Harry Potter movies?

If you believe in magic, The Leaky Cauldron in Dallas might just be the entrance to Diagon Alley.

Flip through a gallery to see all the 21-and-up cocktails, including a 'dumbledrop' and a love potion called amortentia.

In the bathroom at The Leaky Cauldron, Professor Dumbledore makes a cheeky joke:

A mural of Dobby the House Elf is in the restrooms, too.

Fun fact: 'Real Housewives of Dallas' star LeeAnne Locken went to the sneak preview of the Harry Potter bar.

If you find a pair of Harry Potter's glasses, better put 'em on.

(You can also buy some on Amazon, we say from experience.)

The sign says no Muggles, so here's hoping you're a wizard or a Squib.

You thought the Hogwarts Express boards at Platform 9 3/4 in London? Seems there's another one, in Dallas.
