I saw the show in Toronto, on July 24th. After reading the reviews I was excited about seeing his show. To be honest I have not been to many magic shows, but this one totally sucked. None of the tricks really impressed me, if anything it was very immature and boring. The whole time my husband wanted to leave, and... More

Brutal. Trust me! Unless your twelve! Ivan put the deck of cards away and surprise us with something different. So boring. Save your wopping $75. I'd rather count to a billion then sit through that again

My boyfriend and I saw this show in Seattle on March 25, 2015 at the Westin. As this was the first show my boyfriend and I got to attend in about 3 years, I decided to splurge and payed rack rate for front row seats. I left the show very disappointed with that decision. While I think that Ivan was... More

Brilliant place! Great drinks and dinner reservations required. Take a friend, date, or go with a group of friends. Located nearer to Hollywood Hills. Safe & friendly place.

We are huge fans of Ivan's and have followed him for over 15 years watching his talents become more sophisticated and spectacular every time we see him. I arranged for this to be the birthday celebration show for my husband's surprise milestone party and invited 27 guests to witness and capture the same wonder that we have enjoyed so immensely...

We were expecting great things after hearing about this place from some close friends and felt a bit disappointed. It was good but not all that exciting. We had high expectations which may have been the reason for feeling let down. Still made for a fun time.

If you are a FAN of Magic you will love this show! I caught Ivan's show in Washington DC over Valentines weekend. I am so happy that he travelled to our city to share his talents. They say that magicians use the art of distraction to perform their tricks...not Ivan. I watched extra closely and his show is so seamless... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
