I really didnt know what to expect from this magic show. I had seen that it was something to take the younger children too so was worried it would be more for kids. But it totally isn't just for the kids. It is perfectly suitable for children as there is nothing rude, but it is certainly not designed for children.

Peter comes around before hand and is very one on one with the guests. He does card tricks for everyone, and I am sure he is sussing us all out at the same time. Then you are seating party by party into the small theatre. We were front row, we could rest our feet on the stage that is how close you are.

There is something more intense about seeing magic up close like that. It is even more magical because you would think you could figure how he does stuff but you can't. Peter gets lots of help from the audience which really breaks the ice and you feel like you are all just one big group a private function perhaps.

Well recommended.

We are so thankful that we read about this show on Tripadvisor. Peter Morrison's magic show is very entertaining. Children and adults of all ages had a fun time. We liked the preshow where Peter comes to individual parties to perform some tricks. We laughed throughout the 75 minute group show. It was well worth the money.

Peter made me feel like our presence at the show was special. He was completely personal and dazzling every second we were there. First name basis, amazing show. Show up early and get a special little magic show with a drink and food menu available. Such a great magician, I can see why he has been so successful at what he does!

The whole evening was terrific from the first step into the ornately decorated building, being greeted by Peter himself, enjoying morrocan food with Peter visiting our table, and then the show itself. The variety and way Peter performed was awesome, and we especially loved the elements of magical history that he infused into the show. We we're thoroughly entertained from start to finish and especially enjoyed Peter's genuine and energetic interaction with us and the other guests. What a treat, and well worth the price.

An enjoyable an entertaining night of magic set in a intimate little cave-like bar and theatre which ooze atmosphere - great setting for a magic show. The show was quite old-school magic (especially when you are used to Derren Brown) but still impressive...I would recommend this if you are looking for something a bit different to do on your night out. We only had one night in San Francisco and spent it here with no regrets! If you book the 6.30pm showing there is plenty of time to go out for a meal afterwards.
