Late Night Magic launched on Friday the 13th at Leeson Street's well known Sugar Club venue.  Hosted by illusionist Shane Gillen, Late Night Magic is a tailored event designed to engage an audience with parlour, vaudeville, street and stage magic in a way that remains intimate, humorous and memorable.

The auditorium's round tables are under candlelight to create an atmosphere for the on-stage performances and guests can also find themselves in the Parlour Room. for one-on-one close-up and intimate magic performances by the entertainers.

Patrons can sit around the parlour table and even learn some of the secrets of magic. Games of 'Beat-the-magician' are played at various intervals throughout the evening where guests will be encouraged to guess how the trick works or perform a trick for themselves, if they can do it - they'll win a cocktail named after the magician they have just beaten.

There will be 5 'Queen of Hearts' cards hidden within the venue. Find one of them and automatically find yourself in with the chance of winning €250.  Late Night Magic will run monthly in The Sugar Club will alternating performers and acts every month, set to become one of Dublin's flagship events. Admission is €10 on the door and spaces are limited. Doors open at 7pm, and the show begins at 8pm sharp.
