The Magic Castle
Located in the mystical hills of Tinseltown, this exclusive club has been the seat of the Academy of Magical Arts since opening in 1962. Nonmembers can only gain admittance if invited by a member. If you're not well-connected, the Magic Castle offers classes in the arts whereby you will be granted access to this fortress. The SoCal beach-bum style won't work here; all visitors must strictly adhere to a formal dress code. A more casual family-friendly brunch + magic shows combo is available on the weekends.
