Before, I imagined myself to be in a place where I can experience one of my favorite Movie Sequel ; Harry Potter! And later found this place that will make you fall in love with it once again.
Bookworms and potterheads living in Bacolod City will get a fantastic experience when they visit Chapter 9 3/4 Coffee House – a very special café that tries to capture the magic of the Harry Potter books. Step through the doors of this fantastic restaurant and you will feel at home in this restaurant filled with whimsical decor.
Chapter 9 3/4 is located on Locsin Street near Bacolod’s Cybergate Center. It might be a bit hard to spot at first so keep a look out for a red-roofed building with their logo.
Chapter 9 3/4 (nine three quarters as pronounced) is a Cafe in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, Philippines and if you live nearby or planning to go in Bacolod, you should try visiting this place, it’s worth it…
This cafe is mainly designed and styled according to the chapter of the Harry potter sequel named after the cafe. Each Corner is filled with stuffs that relates to the movie, like banners from the Houses of Wizards: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. Vintage styled frames from some of the Characters in the movie like Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Draco Malfoy, Lord Voldemort, Professor Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter (of course). And figurines and wizardly things from the movie that I can’t identify already but, you might! Haha. They also have corners where they displayed their collections of fuji snaps of their past customers and key chains from different countries and it’s so happy to see that the owner and caretaker of the cafe are amazed to the place in the fact that people loved what they also loved. They even have a telephone station inside it where you can really call someone with and I was even shocked about this (seriously hahaha), but it’s great!, for one to see such things you rarely see here on Bacolod it’ll really put a smile on your face.
They also allow their customers to wear the capes or costume used as a uniform and experience it just like in the Movie so that you’ll really be into that station feeling like a wizard chilling in one of the cafe’s around. And it felt great that it made myself feel more than just satisfaction, but butterflies were like in my stomach hahaha. This includes the magic wands, coats and scarfs in every houses and the ever iconic Harry Potter glasses!
It is also a great gathering place to know and meet people that shares the same interest with you (just like the harry potter movie). Talking with people there will make it more fun knowing almost all who visits here loves the movie. They even play a marathon of the sequels of the movie randomly where it will make you stay a little longer than usual habits.
I decided to finally visit this place when my friend said she’s around. That’s why…
“Unplanned things are the best!”
