Bar magic is a long and storied tradition, and the UK has a new establishment that caters to both bar and magic. Sleight Bar Bath is billing itself as an underground magic bar. The magic is provided by resident performer Paul Brookes and other guests. It’s also carving out a niche for hen and stag parties (that’s bachelor and bachelorette equivalents for our American readers). Magic performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at the bar in Bath, Somerset.
It’s great seeing so many venues with dedicated magic performances popping up around the world. We recently found video of a whole magic set by resident magician Mike O’Donnell at Lagunitas Brewery in Chicago. Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam recently opened a magic-focused performance venue. And Wales is getting a teeny-tiny magic theater of its own. It seems that wherever you live, you can literally find a little magic.
