Step inside the spooky Steamy Hallows in the East Village

A “Harry Potter-” inspired coffee shop called Steamy Hallows officially opened its doors on Wednesday, introducing a small world of Gothic oddities and “Harry Potter” flare to the East Village.

The shop at 514 3/4 E. Sixth St. is full of shrunken heads, old taxidermy like a 75-year-old stuffed owl and an actual bat, real witch potions and an Irish cauldron from the 1700s that steams in the window all day.

We went to its grand opening on Wednesday to get a glimpse into the spooky space. Scroll down to see what you’ll find inside.
