I got these tickets on Groupon and it was absolutely fantastic. A great combination of comedy and magic. The venue is small and intimate so everyone gets a good view of the show. The drink service was good and decently priced. Would definitely go again.

We were there to celebration our anniversary. So much fun. Spencer was amazing. The venue is gorgeous. The drinks were delicious and went down smooth. I highly recommend checking out the show. If you go, go early if you want front seats.

They serve non-alcoholic drinks. I would contact them directly to ask about bringing in food. There are other restaurants near there where you could eat first.

We had several children at a family wedding party and the illusionist even involved them in the show. Appeals to all age groups. Who doesn't like magic?
