The Magic Castle in Hollywood is very magical! You have to be invited by a magician or you can stay at the Magic Castle Hotel to gain entrance. There are two dinner seatings, 6PM and 8PM. Our group of 10 were lucky and got to sit in the Houdini Seance room for dinner. It was very nice to have our... More

If you get a chance to go here it is a once in a life time must do! It is something totally different to do, we had the opportunity to visit the The Magic Castle as we were staying next door at The Magic Castle Hotel. You will be in for a night or day of real magicians and some... More

The magic castle is a member only mansion, which is dedicated to magic. For the price of admission you can make your way through the many rooms in the castle, see as many shows as you'd like, and be treated to a seriously jaw dropping magic show. Make sure you get on a tight schedule, the rooms are small and... More

We decided to visit The Magic Castle magic club as we stayed at the hotel and as there is a strict policy re going as you have to either a member, be with a member or be staying at the hotel. You also need to book a meal as we'll. The meal was great you are then treated to a... More

Just attending one of the most exclusive venues in LA is magical within itself. My wife and I attended as we were staying at the neighboring Magic Castle Hotel. Dinner was amazing and the main stage show was very entertaining. Some of the supporting parlor and closeup acts were a little outdated and were not as good or as professional... More

I attended last week with my brother, Rick Hebert, who is a magician and invited to perform in the Close Up Gallery and was there for 3 evenings, Thursday through Saturday. We saw all of the magicians in the main rooms as well as many of the performers that perform in the bars and other rooms as well as nooks... More

Loved our experience at the magic castle!! You've got to know someone to get tickets but with a quick internet search it's pretty easy to make friends with a magician who is also a member, and who can also get you tickets. There are a couple different ways to go, the first being to have dinner at the castle which... More

First time, but won't be the last time. It was great and we still talk about it! This place is so large that we didn't get to see all of the magicians. Next time will be just as great!

We had an opportunity to bid on an invitation to visit the Magic Castle for a local school fundraiser. The logistics of getting the reservations made were a bit convoluted, at least seemingly to us, but it was worth the effort. We ate dinner at the Magic Castle, food prices aren't cheap, but they serve excellently prepared dishes. I had... More

All I can say is wow! This place is phonomenal. The magic castle hosts extremely talented magicians and the close up way to enjoy the magic is so unique. The dinner was great as well as all of the service throughout the castle. As you walk around and explore, magic is happening all around you. My favorite room was the... More
