Magician Michael Carbonaro’s Favorite L.A. Hideouts


On May 17 the star of The Carbonaro Effect on TruTV appears at the Academy of Magical Arts Awards Show at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. Here are his hideouts:

Cavern Club Theater
“I saw a show there that was a mashup of music and dance and imagery from the 1970s in drag. It’s a modern phantasmagoria in a basement.”

La Descarga
“There’s a little back room and a secret passageway. The next thing I knew, someone was standing over me playing the sax.”

El Compadre
“It’s like a dark cave with alcoves and live music, and it’s really transcendent.”
