Just went to the magic castle for my wife's birthday party. Great time with amazing food and fun entertainment. I would try to get the earlier seating for dinner. We had the later seating and the dinner ran right up against the last show of the night. That being said, they actually waited to start the show until our group... More

if you are into magic, illusions and top rate magicians do your best to wrangle an invitation to the Magic Castle. Whether it's Irma, the invisible piano player or a close up show you and your party will be amazed. Also found the staff quite helpful.

While the food here is adequate and everyone is helpful, the most delicious part of all is the magic entertainment and shows. No matter what your age, if you can score guest passes or can go with a member, you will go home wondering just how they did what they did in front of your eyes!

I grew up in Hollywood and always wanted to go to the Magic Castle. I brought family and friends on a guest pass. We splurged and had lobster and wine. Best I have ever had. The shows were amazing. My son didn't even know his watch was taken until the end of the show. I have been back since this... More

Great experience!! The castle has so many different rooms and corners where magicians perform their tricks. You can easily spend several hours seeing the performances. Dinner was very good, as well as the service. Overall a great experience.

Such a cool place - you could spend hours just walking around touring the place and looking at the decor. Extremely unique - I don't think there is a place anything like this in the world. I especially liked the variety of performers and that some of them (retired, amateur, or current) entertain in random spots throughout the place -... More
