Magic fans rejoice!
According to LA Magazine, Milt Larsen (co-founder of the Magic Castle in Hollywood) announced that a second location will open in Montecito later this year. “It will strictly be devoted to close-up magic and variety arts,” says Larsen. “It’s a gorgeous little place with a lakefront view.” The structure is apparently about 1/5 the size of the Hollywood location and will feature a 50-seat theater and lounge.
The Magic Castle Cabaret will overlook a lake and nature preserve, and is expected to be open by Halloween.
