It's a private club, so you have to be invited there by a member. If you can find somebody who is, jump at the chance. True to it's name, it's a magical place, with things going on all the time.

I was lucky enough to be invited to this spectacular place. It was definitely one of the most fun and unique experiences I've ever had. The magic starts from the beginning as you need to say a password to enter the dining hall. Once you're in, there are several bars that you can frequent for a delicious meal, generous drinks...

Warm early 1900's decor with eclectic menu. Service and food were both great. You must be the guest of a member to gain entrance to the Castle. There is a strict dress code.

We were fortunate to be a guest of a magician performing at the Magic Castle. It was a super-fun place! The food was top-notch and the atmosphere can't be beat. The service was great and the magic shows were phenomenal!

Having dinner at the Magic Castle Club is an experience. The Dress Code is strict ( Coat and tie for men and dresses or suits for women ). Everywhere you went in the building ( more like a maze ) there was some sort of magic being performed. Oh by the way the meal was very nice.

I felt like Fred Flinstone when my steak arrived but it was delicious. Going to such a location you don't really expect to find such a terrific meal. Our party was very happy with all of our meals.
