Hello I am visiting Chicago from Europe between the 10th and 17th of next November and wanted to ask you if you could advise me on good magic I could see in Chicago during my stay. I will for my part perform impromptu wherever I can.
thank you for your help.

Check out Dennis Watkins "The Magic Parlour" at the Palmer House Hilton. A great show in a fabulous historic hotel!

There's also the Chicago Magic Lounge, every Thursday and Saturday night.

And they were just featured on the Travel Channel: http://www.travelchannel.com/shows/andrew-zimmerns-driven-by-food/video/chicago-magic-lounge

Go to the Chicago Magic Lounge if you get the chance.

Those guys are trying really hard and putting up a good product. They really are. I have been a couple of times to see friends and this effort deserves support.

That goes for anyone who goes to Chicago or lives there. All involved are really great.

I posted this about a year ago: Enjoy...

There is a lot of magic to see/be a part of in Chicago: Some of the below options might be subject to change during the Christmas Holiday.

1. You have The Magic Parlor at the Palmer Hotel: http://themagicparlourchicago.com

2. The Chicago Underground Lounge, every Thursday (& now Saturday too) night: http://www.uptownunderground.net/ox_port......-lounge/

3. The Magic Cabaret on Wednesdays: http://www.magic-cabaret.com

4. Magic Chicago Show: http://www.magicchicagoshow.com

5. O'Donavan's Restaurant has live strolling magicians, Fridays through Sundays (6-9PM): http://www.odonovansbar.com , which happens to be two blocks from my place.

6. You can see me perform every Friday (2-8pm) and Saturday & Sunday (1-6pm) at Lagunitas Brewery, kid friendly, live music, great beer, quality food, and free tours. I have my own desingated table (black jack size). https://lagunitas.com/taprooms/chicago

7. There is also a great magic shop called Magic Inc. worth a trip and they can help with any additional magic shows in Chicago: http://www.magicinc.net/about-us.aspx

Some of these shows have discounts on goldstar.com as well as other discounts on Chicago shows. I hope this helps...
