I had a great date there. I bought the tickets the day before for 10pm Friday performance was seated 2nd row and ended up getting called on stage for one of the tricks.

We went this past weekend. We really aren't into magic but wanted to do something different. We had an absolute blast. The magic was fantastic. The food and drinks were also excellent. We can't wait to go back!

This was super fun and entertaining. Although it wasn’t a first date my girlfriend enjoyed the show. Highly recommend this for everyone but would recommend the mezzanine.
