The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

The canapes were good, and the magician was courteous. I'm not sure why it's advertised as ages 12 and over as it would have been more appealing to younger audiences. Many of the tricks were fairly obvious.

This was a night filled with magic and comedy, and enjoyed by all. We went to celebrate a friend's 80th birthday and she loved it as it was a night with a difference! I would go again.

Pretty expensive for an average show. One trick was flawed with an "oh well". Even I know how he could have covered the mistake

We had the best night with a small audience - caopies and wine. The show itself was really engaging and the magician was excellent

'The Gentleman Magician', variously described in the advertising literature as a 'captivating, entrancing magical soiree' was a huge disappointment. Upon our arrival at the hotel my group of 20 retirement village residents were required to navigate the labyrinth of below stairs laundry/food preparation areas since the hotel lift was inoperative and the only alternative to the stairs was to walk around the side of the hotel in icy outdoor temperatures. We were then directed to a somewhat tired and gloomy room where the light fittings were barely attached to the walls-no evidence of the splendid chandeliers featured in the advertisements. We sat in rows to receive two savoury and one sweet canapes and a glass of 'champagne'. No atmosphere whatsoever. The show itself was as tired as the decor.
The gentleman magician was elegant and courteous but his magic fell well short of baffling wonderment indeed, some of his tricks went awry. As we retraced our way through the laundry labyrinth many of us questioned the $95 price tag for tickets for the show. Personally, I would have preferred to remain in the comfort of my own home enjoying a Netflix night!

The show we saw in May 2021 was presented in the Old Ritz Carleton, now named "The Sir Stamford" in a downstairs room. Some other guests had problems with the stairs. This was not the splendid room in the publicity photographs.
Somehow the whole thing was disappointing and didn't live up to its publicity. The promised canapes (3) and the glass of bubbly was served to us sitting in our seats before the show began.
Bruce has a good chatter and the magic, though dated, was almost OK, but for a member of of any Magic Circle to fluff two "forces" in a 2 hour performance is unforgivable. This happened during his presentation to us.
His involvement with two of the members of the audience was well handled.
It bore the hallmarks of a Show which has been going for a very long time and now needs a rethink and revival about what it is actually presenting.
It is poor value for the admission price in its present form.
It should stop advertising that it is number 2 on the Trip advisor "Shows and concerts" as it is actually 11 or 28 depending on where you look on the trip advisor website.
We were underwhelmed and disappointed by our evenings entertainment.

We booked for the experience of a magic show with Bubbly and canapés beforehand. The event was held in a pokey room down a flight of stairs. Seating was in rows of chairs. Ambience was non existent. Canapés consisted of one prawn dumpling served on a spoon with soy sauce; one pizza , slightly larger than a 50 cent coin and one small tart. The Gentleman (which indeed he is) magician certainly had the patter but the show was underwhelming. The rope trick (using cords) is clever but dated. A couple of tricks were fairly obvious but another couple or so were indeed baffling. I have seen better magicians and tricks at a party for young children. Wish we had gone out for a meal instead. It would have been cheaper than this overpriced show.

We had a wonderful evening. I took my 13 year old grandson to see the show and it was all smiles. He loves magic, has seen other live shows and has learnt many tricks himself, from his father and some on YouTube. We loved the stories, the way they were put across and it had our full attention during the whole performance.
The venue was incredible and most fitting:) Overall we had such a lovely night. Highly recommended and thank you!
