Magic Castle



Remember when you watched that episode of Arrested Development with Ben Stiller and wished the magician’s alliance was a real thing? It is! There’s a reason GOB wasn’t getting in – the performers here are top notch. This membership only castle, run by none other than the fantastically dashing Neil Patrick Harris-wait for it-awesome, hosts a variety of acts, from card tricks, to close up magic, to the mainstage show meant to please a bigger crowd. There are several rooms throughout (and even more bars), a full restaurant (which you may have to eat at as part of your cover), and ghost of a piano player that seems to know songs off hand by every magician expect for the Black Keys (she thinks it’s the Black Eyed Peas – but don’t blame her – she’s a ghost). Though it might take a magical encounter to get in, you can often contact magicians directly and beg, plead, or bribe them with a dozen white doves to get you on the guest list. Be sure and keep your wallets and watches close at hand – these things are known for making grand disappearing acts.
