The McKittrick Hotel, home of the famous Sleep No More, introduces Speakeasy Magick, a spellbinding new experience featuring the city’s top magical talents. The hotel’s latest enchantment features a combination of up-close-and-personal prestidigitation and parlor magic, hosted by Todd Robbins. Robbins is a New York City-based performer who specializes in intriguing deceptions and offbeat amusements. He brings decades of experience on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and around the world to The Club Car each week.
Audiences are transported to the top floor of The McKittrick in a vintage elevator car, where The Club Car and its residents await. Inside the mysterious venue, cozy tables and a live jazz pianist set the scene for an evening of dazzling surprises. Not your ordinary “magic show,” once inside, you are truly mesmerized by the most talented illusionists in the industry for a hypnotic and theatrical soiree!
Speakeasy Magick summons guests to the underground world of immersive magic as a revolving cast conjures amazing feats before their eyes. Performers include Matthew Holtzclaw (Penn & Teller: Fool Us), Patrick Davis (Monday Night Magic), Jason Suran (The Other Side), Mark Calabrese (Penn & Teller: Fool Us), Matias Letelier (Matias’ Magic & Mentalism), Prakash Puru (celebrity favorite), Alex Boyce (How to Transcend a Happy Marriage), Rachel Wax (A Taste of Magic), Noah Levine (Magic After Hours), and more.
Card tricks, pyrotechnics and comedic relief are just a few of the things you can expect at Speakeasy Magick. Sleight-of-hand also extends to the bar offerings as well. Signature drinks include a stiff Old Fashioned and the hotel’s signature Sleep No More concoction, as well as a gilded bar cart with chilled bubbly, bespoke creations, and barrel-aged cocktails poured table side. Whether hosting friends from out of town or looking for a unique date night idea, Speakeasy Magick is a must-see!
