“Loved this show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Myself and my wife just got back from this show and had a great time. We got there about an hour early and gad a couple of lovely drinks and some snacks while we personally entertained by Peter the magician. Even his card tricks while we were waiting are amazing. I'm still trying to work out how the card we picked out ended up in his wallet!
The theatre is small and personal and everyone gets a good view. He also will pull a few people up to help him with a few of his tricks. I luckily got the opportunity as well as a girl who had a few drinks which was rather entertaining.
Any way it is well worth the price and remember to get there early.

“So Magical!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

My friends from Florida learned about this show on Trip Advisor's list of things to do in San Francisco. We were so impressed! The magician, Peter Morrison, came into the lounge for a 'pre show' where we dined on Morrocan food and drinks while he performed slight of hand tricks.

He's very talented and so personable, really makes you feel appreciated. My friend and I each got turns being in the show, which was so amazing.

I am currently planning a trip back with my three kids, as it's a great family show, as well.

Bonus: Upstairs is a restaurant with belly dancers...not to be missed and the owners Bashir and Nadir are very friendly.

Parking is nearby if you drive...$15 in garage. Walking distance to Marrakech.

“Amazing Magic Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

My wife and I recently went to this show with some friends and had a great time! The owner/magician is really friendly and his magic is top-notch. I highly suggest getting there early and having a drink in the waiting area - he comes around and does some close magic with you that is out of this world!

The theatre only seats 40 people so there is not bad seat. The show is very entertaining and well done and leaves you wondering "how did he do that". Check it out - it's one of those little hidden gems of the city that you have to see!

Expect to be treated very special at this great little theater! You will be escorted down stairs and greeted by Peter himself, then very thoughtfully sat in the lounge area (if you show up early for the meet and greet, which I suggest you don't miss this amazing first hour!) Peter makes you feel like your the only one in the room, interacting with his guests and performing great feats of magic one on one! After the meet and greet, Peter will personally seat you in the very charming theater, then proceed to WOW you with his magic! You will be amazed at his abilities, wit and charm! Don't miss this show!

My wife and I are on our honeymoon and went to his show tonight. WOW... highlight of our special week, without question! Peter was gracious and charming while dazzling everyone in his intimate little theater. His routine is wonderful, but what truly sets him apart from other magicians is his showmanship, wit, and effortless, seamless execution. Everyone in the audience participated; he saw to it throughout the evening that each guest was having an ongoing fantastic experience.
If you live in The City or are planning to visit, seeing Peter's show is a recreational imperative. No other show weaves magic, comedy, and artful conversation to perfection; this show delivers just that. Bravo!
