Philippines to welcome first international Elephant House Cafe

Harry Potter enthusiasts, rejoice. The Elephant House — a renowned Scottish authors’ café revered as the “birthplace” of Harry Potter — is set to open its inaugural international branch outside of Edinburgh.

The highly anticipated establishment will find its home in the vibrant heart of the new Greenhills Mall, offering Filipino fans a unique experience steeped in literary history.

Located in San Juan City, Greenhills Mall has long been a haven for hobby stores catering to collectors with a wide range of interests.

Come December 2023, it will proudly host the first International Elephant House Café in the Philippines, adding a touch of enchantment to the already vibrant shopping and dining scene.

“We’re beyond excited for Greenhills Mall to be the home of The Elephant House in the Philippines. Greenhills Mall has always supported the many interests and hobbies of our shoppers, and the Harry Potter fandom will soon experience the magic themselves,” said architect Renee Bacani, Vice President of Ortigas Malls.

The Elephant House, in collaboration with retail brand Museum Context, has formed a groundbreaking partnership with Philippine restaurant group Visum Ventures. This marks the first international venture for Elephant House under its Elephant House International brand. The renowned Museum Context, located on the vibrant and picturesque Victoria Street in Edinburgh — a beloved destination for Potter enthusiasts due to its resemblance to Diagon Alley — will soon be accessible to Harry Potter fans of all ages.

Scottish food producers are set to benefit from the enterprise which will see unique Elephant House blend coffee, teas, and menus featuring tried and tested recipes alongside Scottish produce such as Walker’s shortbread, Loch Fyne smoked salmon and Barr’s Irn Bru.

Since its opening in 1995 in Scotland, The Elephant House has evolved into a tourist destination, captivating fans who revel in the world of Harry Potter.

Inside, the enchantment extends with an array of officially licensed Harry Potter merchandise provided by Museum Context, alongside a plethora of elephant-themed accents.

The Philippine branch will faithfully replicate the menu and ambiance of the cafe. As night falls, the cafe will unveil an additional delight — a whisky bar — to cater to the nocturnal visitors.
