A Night of Magic & Illusion

Every Saturday, we’re inviting NYC’s top musicians & magicians to perform in our art deco cocktail lounge, from local legends to Grammy award-winners. 

This week’s performance is a magical act featuring illusionist Jeanette Andrews, Matthew Holtzclaw, and Prakash Puru, performing mind bending sensory illusions in our intimate space.

The magicians will perform table magic — where they perform right at your table — along with parlor magic to the entire room. You’ll be served a complimentary tableside cocktail by our Head Mixologist, and you can browse our curated menus of cocktails, beer, and wine. 

Tickets for this intimate evening are $100, with two specialty cocktails included. 

The event has two reservation options: 7:00-8:30pm and 9:00-10:30pm. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made by clicking the link below. Walk-ins will be accepted if space is available.

Please note that your reservation is for 90 minutes and the room will be cleared after each seating.

BONUS: If you join us at our New American restaurant, The Grid, for dinner before or after your magic show reservation, you will receive 20% off your dinner bill! *valid on the night of your magic show reservation only

We’re continuing to book fascinating musicians and magicians for Live from the Lounge series every Saturday, and will announce shows one-month in-advance, so check the schedule and we hope to see you soon! 

About The Magicians:

Jeanette Andrews is hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists in the world today and has staged hundreds of sold-out and standing-room-only performances for Fortune 500 companies, theaters and universities including Infiniti, Kraft, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Lyric Opera & Chicago Ideas Week. She has presented commissioned and site-specific works for The Smithsonian’s Cooper Hewitt, the International Museum of Surgical Science, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.

Andrews presented her first magic performance at age four, was paid to do her first magic show at age six, began running her business that day and has never had another job since, and is now internationally recognized as a pioneer in her field. Andrews uses sensory anomalies, art and scientific anecdotes to create luxurious experiences that bridge everyday life to a special, heightened world. She loves creating experiences for audiences to engage with the impossible in fun, insightful, generous ways. 

Andrews is an Affiliate of Harvard’s metaLAB and prior artist in residence for High Concept Labs and The Institute for Art and Olfaction. Illusion is Ms. Andrews’ life’s work and her performances have been praised by the Chicago Tribune, PBS and the New York Times.
