"My girlfriends and I were in Chicago for my bachelorette weekend and they know I love magic. I was so surprised when they took me to The Magic Parlour! The show was fantastic and we were all blown away by Dennis's tricks. A great time and good laughs were had by all!"

"We visited Chicago for our son’s 14th birthday and The Magic Parlour was perfect for an evening out. Our son was asked to help with the last magic trick of the evening. It was the highlight of his trip! Definitely a must see during a visit to Chicago!"

This was my 2nd visit to the Magic Parlour to celebrate a Girls Night Out - 65th B-day. EVERYONE had a fantastic time from the first act to the last! This is by far my favorite show in Chicago and I can't wait to come back over and over again to bring more friends and family!

"We took my mother here as part of her 80th birthday celebration. Our party's ages ranged from 16 to 80, and we were all amazed. The 90 minutes flew by, and we simply did not want it to end. Weeks later we are still talking about the tricks."
