Yelp reviewer Amy W. described her experience at Potions & Poisons:

"This is one of my new favorites in ktown! It's a small hidden gem with a door that's just slightly difficult to find but once you find it, you'll be in for a great night -- it gives me speakeasy vibes which I LOVE. The cocktails are super good and decently priced (creative names too). I ordered the strawberry fields and that drink is dangerously delicious. There are even karaoke rooms here! But I heard they do book quickly. You can just tell that this place was well thought out -- the aesthetic is unique and the ambiance makes for a chill yet thrilling experience... It's a great place to casually catch up with friends over drinks or maybe even get a little overly inebriated if that's the kind of night you're trying to have... :)"
