The San Francisco Magic Parlor has entered its second season at the beautiful Beaux Arts style Chancellor Hotel! The Parlor received a fantastic review in the San Francisco Examiner in January resulting in three standing-room-only weekends.
Guests embark upon a theatrical journey where fascinating tales of Wonder and Shadow unfold. Our fresh Performance style seamlessly blends classic Storytelling with classical Conjuring. The new "Magical Tales of San Francisco" parlor show is called "Astonishment!" ...and that is exactly the intent.
We introduce you to San Francisco's most revered and feared eccentrics, offering captivating tales and astounding conjuring. The evening's vignettes are highlighted with magical moments often employing unusual curios and rare artifacts.
Time seems to stand still in this little 30 seat Parlor situated within the historic Chancellor Hotel, right on Union Square. Our whimsical turn-of-the-century venue evokes old San Francisco and the Beaux Arts era. Guests may enjoy an optional light pre-show dinner, drinks, or desserts, from 5 pm to 7 pm in the lobby lounge.
