Brilliant place, even better if you're into magic!

Went for a private event and it was fantastic. The staff were really friendly and the performers/ magicians were excellent! If you get a chance check it out!

Lots of fun, funky decor, good eats, and magic! If you are lucky enough to get an invitation, put on your dinner dress and sashay to the Magic Castle. We were impressed by all the magicians, and we enjoyed talking with them in their club. After the evening, we appreciated what "athletes" the magicians are. They practice with cards all... More

Sorcery and magic shows that can take you back in time as well as present a wonderful magic show up close and personal. The brunch was a taste that was magic as well. Anything you could think of was there for you to eat. The service was impeccable! The dress code is strictly enforce but certainly worth it. All the... More

Oh yeah there is a Magic Castle in the middle of Hollywood and it's entirely composed of magic shows in multiple rooms and theatres hidden deep in the bowls of an old roaring 20's Hollywood castle on the hill. YES it’s absolutely incredible but the membership-only club and is dinner theater with an attached restaurant is notorious and strict for... More

A friend brought me here with a small group. We started in a couple of the smaller rooms, and the up-close magic is wild. Then we had a great dinner (my Rack of Lamb was amazing, thick chops, cooked perfectly). We capped the night with the main stage, and it was a lot of fun. One of the magicians not... More

The Magic Castle is a one-of-a-kind experience that's not to be missed if you can get in. It's not for the faint of wallet, but for great, classic dinner food, and world-class magic, there's really no where else you can go: anywhere. If you go on weekends, be prepared for a club scene and crowds, but that can be part... More

An expensive, but classic dinner club style menu. Great service. Good food. But the magic is the reason for being here. It does not disappoint!

I took my husband for his birthday. You have to be invited or know a member that will provide an invite. There is an entrance fee and you'll need reservations. Call ahead of time as weekends book fast. I had a dinner reservation at 9:50pm but called the day before and asked if anyone had cancelled. They had an opening... More
