Ballard’s wizard-themed pub ‘The Splintered Wand’ permanently closes

“Stay magical, Ballard - we will miss you.” And with that, the social media favorite Ballard pub, The Splintered Wand, announced it is permanently closing.

While not actually Harry Potter-themed, the pub’s focus on witchcraft and fantasy has led many social media influencers to promote the pub, using the Harry Potter theme.

Located at 5135 Ballard Avenue, customers could eat, drink and even make their own wands, all among the wizard and with-themed decor.

A statement posted on their official Instagram said, “It is with great sadness that the Splintered Wand will be closing its doors effective immediately. All reservations now and in the future have been canceled. We are deeply sorry for those who were unable to experience the magic with us, and are grateful for the support we’ve received over the year we’ve been open.”
