Los Angeles, California: Whimsic Alley: Harry Potter Habitat (Closed)

Diagon Alley from Harry Potter, reproduced indoors with real shops for all your wizarding purchases.
On the south side of Wilshire Blvd midway between Hauser Blvd and S. La Brea Ave. Look for the Art Deco pillars on either end of the building; it was probably a theater in a previous life.

Great Hall.

Whimsic Alley

Harry Potter fans will go crazy for this tribute to Diagon Alley. The "store" may not look like much from the outside, but on entering you'll find yourself in an "alleyway" which features multiple storefronts where you can purchase Hogwarts school robes (including Quiddich robes in all house colors), spell books, witch hats, quills, wands, and tons of Harry Potter memorabilia and artwork.

Be sure to also check out the Great Hall, which comes complete with house benches, flaming torches, an "enchanted" ceiling, and "floating" candlesticks. Various events are held in the hall such as the Yule Ball, Hogwarts mysteries, Character Teas, and Masquerades. You can even get your photo taken at platform 9 3/4! No cost to visit, but you may find yourself shelling out a few dollars on wizard supplies and butter beer!
