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 Some of the supporting parlor and closeup acts were a little outdated and were not as good or as professional...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

Magic Castle brings together all the things I actually like about Hollywood: Shows, glam (dress code), good drinks, the occasional celeb sighting where you notice the person and don't go up to them... It's a fun time. I'm not a Magic fanatic or anything but I really enjoyed the shows. And just walking around the building is fun too. It's... More

Great location for Hollywood to walk day or night & explore. Friendly check in service $14 per day car park charge, free breakfast inc with magic. The room was old and outdated but clean & roomy for families. The Magic Castle was Magic & fun, something different, not for everyone, glad we explored but wouldn't need to stay or go... More

My family and I were fortunate to be able to enjoy brunch there on a Saturday and loved all 4 hours that we spent there. The intimate nature of the shows along with the care they took to make sure kids were involved in the performances was wonderful. The decor of the Castle and being able to explore the location...
