The history and details of this attraction are available on line. It must actually be experienced to relish the atmosphere. We stayed at the affiliated Magic Castle Hotel next door. The rooms are quaint, with old porcelain faucets and shuttered windows. The pool area is...More

This place is a castle smack in the middle of Hollywood. It looks so out of place but it does look magical. You need photo ID to get in for some reason. This is a private club. A member has to invite you for the...More

We love this place. We come here a couple of times a year to see some great magic - both stage shows (smaller, but just as good as the big ones in Vegas), and lots of close-up magic. Professional magicians from all over the world...More
