Calling Chicago Magic Lounge merely a “lounge” is a disservice. It’s a speakeasy-style theater dedicated to the lost art of Chicago-style (read: close-up) magic. That means that once you find your way into this Andersonville theater—hidden behind a fake laundromat—you’ll have magicians coming up to your table to keep you entertained with card tricks and sleight-of-hand illusions. The drink menu has above-average cocktails like a Sazerac, and there are snacks like beef tenderloin sliders or fig and pancetta flatbread. The food isn’t going to melt your mind, but that’s what the stage magic during the second half of the show is for.
