A private clubhouse for the Academy of Magical Arts, the Magic Castle is open only to its professional magician members, associate members with an interest in the magical arts and their guests. Castle guests can enjoy a dinner or brunch at the restored Victorian-style venue as well as take a tour of the building given by the Castle Knights volunteer docents. The castle offers five different magic shows from grand illusion to close-up magic. In addition, cabaret shows introduce song, dance and comedy to the venue. The Magic Castle is available for private events, with several showrooms, meeting areas, and separate bars. Built in 1909, the Magic Castle began as a private mansion, only to become converted into a warren of apartments. In 1961 the estate was renovated, and by 1963 it debuted as the Magic Castle.
