Illusions Magic Bar

Welcome to lllusions Magic Bar! I’m Mark Bennett, and I opened Illusions in 2007 with the aim of bringing magic to the public in a unique setting. The team at Illusions will make sure you have an experience to remember for many years to come - that's why we are still here after 10 years, when other bars have come and gone.


So by being an independent owned business we can adapt to our customer needs and our drinks prices and entertainment is the best deal you'll get in Bristol.


Thanks and I hope to see you at the bar

So what makes this Magic Bar out of this world?

Illusions Magic Bar is unique to Bristol and the UK. We offer award winning entertainment from live DJ's, magicians, musicians and don't forget that you can also get involved with our Magic & Karaoke night too - that's why we call it "Magi-Oke".

We are open 4 days a week, and this gives you the opportunity to hire the bar for your event too. We will provide everything that you need, from the magicians to the food, so just let us know what you're looking for and we will sort the rest!

What makes us stand out?

    T&C of watching a show

    "Each night at Illusions the magic shows are free to watch from 8pm till 1-2am. The only request we have is to make sure that you have a drink in hand when you watch a show as this helps us to pay the magicians fee - they all love to perform and put on a great show and it's a small favour that we ask. Each show lasts 15-20min so for the price of a pint we think you get great value for money - so please buy a drink and show your support!




Every week we have great live musicians to perform sets for you, from cover artists to tribute acts. Set away from the bar area, you can dance and sing the night away from 10pm, with our DJ's following before and after the set - don't forget to put in your requests if you have a favourite tune in mind!

Magic and Karaoke - that's why we call it "MAGI-OKE"! Every Thursday night from 9pm we have over 180k songs for you to choose from, so you're bound to find one that you want to sing! We have partnered up with SongbookDB, and you can scan our songs from the comfort of your mobile phone using a QR reader. It's simple to use and once you have found your song, just click SING and you'll be added to the list and can prepare to take to the stage to sing your heart out!
