You just discovered the perfect Chicago date night idea.

Don your fancy duds and head into the heart of downtown Chicago.  Step into the iconic Palmer House hotel and enjoy the romance of Chicago's most glamorous hotel lobby.

At showtime, 3rd-Generation magician Dennis Watkins meets the audience in the lobby and guides you through the hotel to an intimate private ballroom.  Then, you grab a glass of wine and settle into your seats for a showcase of world-class magic and mind-reading.

Gasp together.  Laugh together.  Revel in the thrill of childlike wonder.
