Owner description: The Chicago Magic Lounge is dedicated to re-introducing you to a style of magic created in the Windy City. Bar magic began in 1915 at a little place called Schulien's. After that, over 15 Magic Bars opened up all over the city over the next 80 years. However, with the last one closing in 1999, the city has lost the true art of "Chicago-Style Magic". Now, the magic is back. In the classic Chicago style, we perform table-side, at the bar, and on the stage. Come back nightly for a fully immersive, interactive, and unique theatrical experience. Cocktails and card tricks, the way magic was meant to be seen. Magic Bar: 5:00 P.M. Mon -Sat No Tickets Required Ticketed Events: Monday - Tuesday: 7:30 P.M. Live Music and Close-Up Magic Wednesday: 7:30 P.M. David Parr's Cabinet of Curiosities Thursday: 7:30 P.M. The Signature Show Friday & Saturday: 7:30 P.M. & 10:00 P.M. The Signature Show Sunday: 2:00 P.M. The Family Matinee Show

Truly unique experience in Chicago, with great talent, food and drinks! We have been twice and can't wait to bring friends and family here.

Step into the laundry mat, ring bell for service, and Presto? Alice is in wonderland! The Magic Lounge features magicians performing card tricks at the bar or table, a library of magic ephemera, secret doors and a stunning intimate art-deco inspired Harry Blackstone Theater with offering music, magic and merriment. Don't miss a trip to the unisex bathroom on your way out...but hang onto your seat or you might fall down (if the killer martinis don't get you first!)

This is a unique and fun experience from the first moment when you enter the building. It’s a lounge with a show but instead of music as the entertainment, it’s magic. Hearing about the history of Chicago style magic made it even better.

We saw the signature show on a Friday night. Everything was spectacular. Some particular favorites were the bar magician, who is always hilarious, and the headliner, Jon Armstrong. Don't miss this show if you're a visitor OR a local.
