Magic Castle during the holidays is beautiful from the outside and inside. I had the cajun-rubbed prime rib and it was fantastic, particularly when paired with some of their signature cocktails. We attended with a member who knew what she was doing, so we saw...More

Dinner reservations aren't required if you attend WITH the sponsoring member. If you're there on a guest pass without the sponsor, you MUST have dinner. Otherwise, you'll be charged even if you don't order dinner!
