Smoke and Mirrors Boutique Pub & Magic Theatre

Add Smoke and Mirrors Boutique Pub & Magic Theatre to your Itinerary

Smoke and Mirrors


Smoke & Mirrors is the UK's only Boutique Magic Theatre & Pub. Located in the heart of the theatre district. This little entertainment bar is rated in the top 5 things to do in Bristol.

Owner Mark Bennett’s ambition was to create a place that offers a slightly more structured evening of magic and comedy. Smoke & Mirrors has its own intimate pub theatre holding around 50 people sitting comfortably at their own prebooked tables.

There are great comedy magic acts every weekend featuring some of the most talented magicians in the world and every Monday they host A Bunch of Japes New Material night for Stand up Comedians – all from a privileged position just metres from the stage. There’s also a separate bar in which the drink and live music flow freely.

Smoke & Mirrors bar is open to the public Monday to Sunday from 4pm to midnight, and when the theatre is not in use it’s the perfect venue for corporate or private events in a unique, inspirational location.
