“Makes a great date night”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

There is so much to do and explore here - so many great things to chat about with a date. The food is very good - though you come here for the entertainment! A must visit if you get the chance.

“A Legendary Hollywood Icon and Amazing Experience”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

The Magic Castle is a private club so you must be invited or lucky enough to get a guest pass or connection. If you do manage a chance to visit, DO NOT pass it up. The castle is a landmark 1908 Hollywood mansion. The architecture and experience of visiting this "castle" alone are worth the trip. That, however, is dwarfed by the extremely well organized and run magic program. The restaurant (dining is mandatory if you are in on a guest pass) is very good. Yes, there is better (and better value) close by, but a small price to pay to eat in the castle and experience the magic. When you arrive, you will spend some time in the parlor and bar for a drink. Your Magic begins with the ghost of Irma, playing the piano in the bar. After dinner, you ail be able to visit a variety of world class magic "shows" in several different venues, small and medium. Do NOT miss the close up room!!

“Fun!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

I have been to the Castle twice and each time was fun. The first time was for my mother in law's reunion. We ate in a separate room which we had all to ourselves, then watched a Magic Show afterwards. We went about a year later with a couple of friends who were invited by a magician friend of theirs. I love the atmosphere here, and to me...it feels like there are spirits all around you when you are there. Great experiences!!
