“The Magic Castle, the clubhouse of the Academy of Magical Arts, is private, allowing entrance only to members and their guests, or through courtesy invitations which are available to magicians visiting from out of the United States. A typical evening—if there even is such a thing here—features magic shows that range from miracles right under your nose to full stage illusions that stun an entire room. The Castle is full of rare memorabilia and magnificent posters, so there’s a lot to see. There’s also a critically acclaimed full-service dining room and a number of unique bars, each with its own personality, making it easy to find just the perfect spot for whatever mood you’re in. Don’t be surprised to look over your shoulder and find somebody performing a minor miracle. You’ll soon understand why your visit will be one of the most amazing evenings you’ve ever experienced. 3 ways to get yourself inside where all the magic happens: 1. It pays to know someone! Know a member or a friend of a member! For most Angelenos, this will be the easiest way to enter. Finding a friend who can get you into the Magic Castle is like playing six degrees of separation: It’s almost a sure thing that your friend’s coworker’s cousin can get you in. Members can hand out guest passes like candy; get one and you’re in, though expect to pay upwards of $75 for the cover charge and dinner. (The door charge is $25 per person from Monday to Thursday nights and during weekend brunch, and $35 per person from Friday to Sunday during the evening.) If you attend the castle accompanied by a member, you can forgo those entry fees, depending on their type of membership. 2. Email! That's right!!! Send the magician performing an email, and tell him or her you're a huge fan (of the magician and magic), and would love to attend the show. If you take a look at the Magic Castle’s show schedule, you’ll find a list of magicians coming to the club over the next month or so. Try emailing a performer whose show you’d wish to attend and they can add you to the guest list. Just make sure to ask nicely—they’re magicians, after all, so they’ll know if your sincerity is just an illusion. And again, be prepared for that cover charge and dinner. (Psst: You can make dinner reservations up to 12 weeks in advance.) 3. Membership does have its privileges! You can apply for an associate membership into the Academy of Magical Arts, no magic training required. When applying, it helps to know someone who’s already a member, otherwise, you may be on the wait list for a bit (don’t worry, it’s only about two or three months’ worth of waiting, which could be much worse, considering the program’s popularity). If accepted, you can visit whenever you’d like, with no door charge or dining minimum. You can also keep your eyes peeled for trial membership offers, which can grant limited-run perks at a fraction of the annual cost. Alternatively, if you’ve already mastered sleight of hand, then consider applying and auditioning for a magician membership, whether your’re local or global.”
