We Cannot Make the Magic Castle Disappear on a Private Tour
We do not have to point up the hill behind Grauman’s Chinese Theater at the Magic Castle because our guests always see it first and want to know more as we approach. The extraordinary structure (actually a composite of two separate buildings) is a magical performance venue for the most amazing magicians in the world. For more than 50 years a main stage, a more intimate space and several “corners” throughout the building are where guests of the Magic Castle can find themselves thrilled and amused by the prestidigitation and patter of master craftsmen of the “magikal arts.” As this is principally a nightclub there is fine dining and numerous bartenders plying their own magic to create libations to guarantee a fun evening. We can make arrangements for our private Los Angeles tour guests who want to investigate the strange and other-worldly interior of this former Hollywood mansion to gain admittance while they are visiting Los Angeles and spend some time pondering the mysteries of time and space after a good meal and special dessert beverages. The kids need not be neglected. There is a brunch on Saturday and Sunday where young people are welcome and the “magic” is meant for them. Enjoy some real Hollywood magic and go see the Magic Castle.
Our Private Tour Guests Delight in the Magic of the Magic Castle
Let us make this perfectly clear. The Magic Castle – a theater for the world’s greatest magicians, illusionists, prestidigitationists and mind-benders, a restaurant and a museum of magic – is a private club. Members only! Coat and tie formality, and a membership card, get you through the spooky incantation door into the building where dining, drinks and magical entertainment await. So how, ask our private Los Angeles tour guests, do we get to enjoy a evening at the Magic Castle? Well, if you are friends with a member you can enjoy a reservation for dinner and a show courtesy of your friend. Or, you can arrange to stay at the Magic Castle Hotel adjacent to the old 1909 mansion overlooking Hollywood. Accommodations include entrance to the night club. Or, you can purchase an Open Sesame 30-day trial membership at the door. Finally, you can just ask your hotel concierge. Concierges, as everyone knows, are truly magicians and they can do their own special hocus-pocus and produce a reservation for you. At the very least, let our tour guides show you around the building and tell you stories of magic, mystery and Hollywood dazzle about the castle. Abracadabra! Zim-salabim!
