What a fun night we had! We stayed at the Magic castle hotel for the sole purpose that it allowed us to enter the otherwise members only magic club, and boy was it worth it (the hotel was really great, nothing special but the stuff were phenomenal)! The ambiance in there is like nothing i've experienced! Dinner was delicious (i would recommend the peppers and the beef) and sitting down with older magicians who are more than happy to share the stories and show you a few tricks! The impromptu magic was by far the best part of the night, more so than the shows, but it was probably because we enjoyed the magicians over the illusionists, but try and go there so you can make that choice for yourself!

I love this place. You need to join or get invited by a member, but well worth it. The food is super excellent.

Just had the opportunity to visit the Magic castle for the second time--Easter Sunday Brunch. food was very good, shows were good (but not as good as the night shows we attended previously). If you have the opportunity to visit the Magic castle definitely do it. Food was a bit pricey but definitely worth it to us! ENJOY, in my opinion if you can attend at night that is your better choice (unless visiting with those under 21)

The Magic Castle is a Los Angeles Institution. If you have the ability to visit, take advantage of it. The shows are very entertaining, whether they are in the show rooms or at the side tables located throughout the venue. I've been a couple of times and every time is a great visit. It has been over ten years since my last visit and I wasn't expecting to be thrilled about the dinner, but was pleasantly surprised that the food was good. One of my friends' pasta tasted "tinny", but the prime rib was great, as was the mac n cheese and truffle fries.

It is not a cheap evening with entry, dinner and drinks (you get one salon show with dinner, the others you have to queue up and wait to get stand-by seating for), so make sure, regardless of what time your dinner reservations are, that you arrive in time to see more than one show and wander around and see the card tricks and other magicians on the other areas.

I'm looking forward to going back soon.
