I work for a bar and have had the opportunity to do a few tricks behind the bar. In fact, I only really do two or three. I've done some card tricks, as well as some ball tricks and a chop cup routine.

I'm looking for good effects for behind the bar. One I am considering is Fraud by Daniel Garcia. In this illusion, a treasury seal of a dollar bill is apparently pulled in one full movement from one end of the bill to the other.

If anyone has anything that they think works, and involves a stage that can be provided by the bar (in other words the scale of the props or effect) please post.

Jiggernaut by Mark Jenest is perfect for a bar.

Egg bag with a shot surprise load.

Good luck.

Do the floating glass while a drink is being poured into it. On the stage perform Multiplying Bottles. There are ways you can make a champagne bottle appear from underneath a silk.

Invest in this prop if you can find it, which will last forever, and then go out and learn a great chop cup routine:

I also agree that Jiggernaut is a wonderful, affordable, and very do-able trick.

One of my favorite bar effects I found in Joshua Jay's Magic book DVD, where he chalks up his finger like a pool cue, and pretends to shoot an impossible, invisible pool shot into a spectator's chosen, closed fist. Inside her or his fist is a chalk mark.

Oldie but a goodie.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Any good bill switch would be nice.
and maybe a coin matrix.

Wow, this is great, thanks guys.

Just listening to the suggestions, the bill switch is the most interesting to me. I like that cup, Wizard. It looks affordable and long lasting. Also, that pool cue idea is great.

Alright, thanks, great suggestions and it looks like I'm going to have to start picking up some literature.

I second the Roger Nicot Chop Cup.

If Bar Magic is your special thing, you will regret not getting one or more of the Nicot Cups.

Eddie Gibson's coin unique could be performed with customer's change...

http://youtu.be/YAu-hSUMGhg?t=13m26s OR http://bcove.me/nms5ouch (skip to 5m 10s)

Just switch the gimmicked coins in and out behind the bar Smile

Also this effect can be done by placing both coins under an upturned glass, the glass is swirled and the coins appear to morph together. When you raise the glass one of the coins has completely dissapeared! Rwally impressive visual magic.

May be more suited to a bar environment plus it's a much 'safer' method than the one in the hands!

Jon Tremaine's Superman, it's been my favorite impromptu trick for years. It uses only 3 ball made from foil in cigarette packs. Richard Osterlind's spoon bending routine. There are many good match routines, that will play well in a bar.
Chink-a-chink, cigarette magic, coin magic, Paul Harris' Fizzmaster (impromptu using 2 soda cans), Nightshades...
A bar has so much potential, because of all the "equipment" just lying around.

Set yourself up for some reel levitation. Make sure the lighting is right though.

Un-frickin' believable. Worth every cent.

I do magic at a local winery and Double Deception by Mark Mason has been very strong. Stand Up Monte and Prohibition also seem perfect for the bar setting.

You should definitely check out Doc Eason, who is a very famous "bar magician". Good luck.

I have also worked a lot in a bar, I found that "Michael Maxwell's Incredible magic at the bar "made easy" (Vol 1-5) where great to help find a few tricks with things you often have in a bar. The dvd's are filmed at a "Bar with Michael Maxwell behind the disk, and doing almost surrounded magic. some are gimmick tricks some are impromptu, some cards tricks, and some simply use a salt shaker and a toothpick, ore a bar napkin. so check them out.
