This is a terrific club. The magic acts are amazing! Moreover, you do not need to go to one of the performance rooms to see magic in action. Some of the club members are happy to work their magic on you in the hallways, sitting...More

We went on a very busy Saturday night during the winter holiday season. Our experience overall was very good. You probably know by now, but just in case, this is a private club. In order to gain entrance you must obtain an invitation from a...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!
