First let me say: Don't let the location scare you off. It's in a fairly seedy part of town but once you get past the ummm...unsavory parts and descend down the steps to the lounge it's all good. The pre-show hour was fine. It was neat the way Peter the magician did up close card tricks and our waitress was... More

I feel weird writing a bad review of this place being that its so glowing with positive reviews. But perhaps the fact we've seen a few magic shows before marred our experience. To put it bluntly, the magician is cheesy and predictable. (and I hate to say slightly arrogant about himself). He likes to talk about himself and how tough... More

I am sorry to hear that you found my show to be less than you expected. The classical magic that I put in the show does indeed take years of practice to perfect, but my main focus on my delivery is more about the history of magic in individual effects. I am glad that you enjoyed my meet and greet... More

Peter is a wonderful entertainer, a great host. All the other reviews are spot on. You will love it. I don't want to give the show away as that's all part of it. Peter comes around and meets everyone before hand and does some tricks at the table while you have some drinks and something to eat. Then he takes... More

The whole evening was such fun. Such a unique and upclose theatre. The magician does an excellent job of including just about all his guests in the show. I love that the group is limited to about 40 people per show. We laughed alot and were amazed at his incredible talent. My two teenagers (age 15 and 18) were thoroughly... More

We were fortunate to spend a Sunday night here for a great family show. It was the favorite choice by everyone! We all were a part of the show and really felt like we were a part of the magic.

Here was the challenge: We had friends visiting from overseas who have been to the Bay Area many times. We've taken them to all kinds of places on previous visits, and were struggling for what to do with a total of 4 adults, 4 kids (ranging in age from 6 to 14). I had read many of the reviews and...

We had the opportunity to see this wonderful show and enjoyed every minute of it. This is a small venue with up close views and interactions with the magician, Peter. He came by every table to meet the guests before the show and performed magic tricks at each one. He was wonderful with the children and including guests in his... More

Maybe it was because many of the reviews were outstanding that my expectations were really high. But it was a nice, expensive, evening. We had just come from dinner, so felt forced to order something in the lounge while waiting for the show.
