Magic Penthouse really hit the spot after a long workday! I went solo and was immediately introduced to fun, like-minded people. I was transported into a world of multiple live, simultaneous shows. It was a feast for the senses and the hosts treating me like a VIP make me feel like an included part of the overall experience. The venue was a colorful and lively Latin American theme, with top notch drinks and the plentiful food was super on point. The acts combined humor, skill, and world class magic knowledge. I honestly can't say enough about how impressed I was. I would highly recommend this entertainment concept with no reservations. If you haven't visited already, get your tickets now!

It was an amazing experience. I didn't know what to really expect walking in, but I was blown away by the level of entertainment, the flow of the event, and the customer service they collectively provide is unmatched.

Magic penthouse also attracts some of Chicago's Elite, so the casual networking/connecting with guests was great and I was able to make a few connections I believe will be fruitful in the future.

Bottom line - you must check out The Magic Penthouse at least once in your life!

p.s. I watched a magician unlock 2 peoples phones back to back. Coolest thing ever lol

I visited the Magic Penthouse with a group of friends, and it was one of the most fun nights. The magic was incredible and mind-blowing, and the close-up format was amazing. 100% recommend to anyone looking to have a fun night!

The Magic Penthouse was an absolutely incredible experience!! I went with a group of friends and it was so so much fun. The magic blew my mind, the tricks were super impressive (you will have no idea how the magicians are possibly so magical but you will love that I promise), and the fact that the magicians engaged so much with the audience was the cherry on top of a truly magical night. I would without a doubt return for another show!

This was far and away the best magic I have ever seen. The tricks ranged from impressive to truly mind-boggling. The atmosphere is also unique and incredibly fun. In particular, the up-close magic is great. I would highly recommend The Magic Penthouse to anyone looking to have an enjoyable evening.

I went with a group of friends and it was honestly one of the best nights ever. The up close magic was spectacular especially the private magic show.

I came here for the first time with a group of friends, not really knowing what to expect, but oh my God what an incredible time. The stage show was really fun but I especially liked the sort-of cocktail party after the show where we could talk to the magicians and see close-up magic. The open bar was also a wonderful feature. It was like no event I've ever been to before and I can't recommend it enough.

Magic is an art. The only magic I'd really been exposed to in my life was stage shows - where someone gets up and performs for a while and gets a couple audience volunteers and that's about it. Magic Penthouse on the other hand spends the VAST majority of the time performing closeup magic, something which literally no other place in the city does. There is something so different about magic that's performed literally right in front of your eyes. It takes another level of presentation, and another level of skill from anything I'd ever seen in my life.

Magic Penthouse will without a doubt be one of the best nights of your life. The magicians are literally world class, drinks and food are plentiful and delicious, and you'll get a night to go back to a time when you were a kid, and life was simpler. A time where there were more questions than answers, more wonder and mystery and that's something I haven't found at any other place in the world.

Loved every minute of the Magic Penthouse, what a great experience we had. We didn't know what to expect and we were not disappointed. The magicians were great, each one was unique, it was so cool to stand there right in front of them and be a part of their magic. The location was lovely, service was great as far as drinks, there were a few appetizers but like they recommend you should have dinner beforehand. Loved the idea that you had to dress, just made the night feel even more special. We will definitely be attending again and bringing some friends.
