Illusions Magic Bar


Illusions is Bristol’s original magic bar. Founded by magician and entrepreneur Mark Bennett in 2007, he’s put his heart and soul into this place to provide customers with something exceptional. You can stroll into Illusions and have a drink and a chat with mates just like a normal pub, but unlike any other pub you can also choose a part of the bar that has free close-up magic tricks which are guaranteed to baffle, amaze and amuse.

Illusions is always buzzing with so much to do. From cocktail classes, cocktail making and magic master-classes to karaoke and free music – there’s always a party vibe and it’s the perfect destination for your stag, hen or office do, or of course just a night out with good friends.
