Nicely renovated small venue with well-done bar up front that provides reasonably priced drinks. Good selection of beers, a handful of wines by glass or bottle, plus some excellent house specialty cocktails. All that is the prelude to the main act - a classic magician...More

I had a wonderful evening with my family watching Spencer Horsmann. He was phenomenal. This was my mother's day gift and I couldn't have received a better gift. You must go see him and have your mind blown. I will be back.

Great date night activity. Tickets are only slightly more than going to the movie theater, and it was incredibly fun. Drink service at your table during the show. The magic was incredible and the performers funny and charismatic. Excellent date night activity.

Was looking for something to do Friday night in Baltimore and discovered Illusions. The most fun I've had in a long time at a great price. Still trying to figure out the movie trick.

They serve non-alcoholic drinks. I would contact them directly to ask about bringing in food. There are other restaurants near there where you could eat first.

We had several children at a family wedding party and the illusionist even involved them in the show. Appeals to all age groups. Who doesn't like magic?
