Overview

The Chicago Magic Lounge is dedicated to re-introducing you to a style of magic created in the Windy City. Bar magic began in 1915 at a little place called Schulien's. After that, over 15 Magic Bars opened up all over the city over the next 80 years. However, with the last one closing in 1999, the city has lost the true art of "Chicago-Style Magic". Now, the magic is back. In the classic Chicago style, we perform table-side, at the bar, and on the stage. Come back nightly for a fully immersive, interactive, and unique theatrical experience. Cocktails and card tricks, the way magic was meant to be seen. Magic Bar: 5:00 P.M. Mon -Sat No Tickets Required Ticketed Events: Monday - Tuesday: 7:30 P.M. Live Music and Close-Up Magic Wednesday: 7:30 P.M. David Parr's Cabinet of Curiosities Thursday: 7:30 P.M. The Signature Show Friday & Saturday: 7:30 P.M. & 10:00 P.M. The Signature Show Sunday: 2:00 P.M. The Family Matinee Show

The magic is amazing. The magicians have humor. The food and drinks are worth the price. This is great place to bring the family, friends, or to enjoy a solo night.

Very different and entertaining. Won a free drink coin but wasn't allowed to use that in the show area. Seemed silly. Bar tricks were so fun. It looks like/seems that the magicians/entertainers rotate so you get a variety of acts.

So highly recommend! Pure entertainment and amazement from the minute you step in the door. I can’t wait to go again...although I have a feeling these shows are going to start selling out WAY in advance.

Absolutely worth every penny. I’m so glad we stumbled across this magic bar on our recent trip in Andersonville. My girlfriend and I had a blast and highly recommend it.

My husband and I just loved this. The two acts in the main stage area were just terrific -- not just magic, but entertaining. They were both hysterical! But before the two acts there is about an hour where you can order drinks, food and...More
