When I was in the Bay Area recently I swung by Magic Garage! It’s soo much fun and Will Chandler is a fantastic host! There are really two parts to the magic garage, there’s the theater and the bar area which is where everyone hangs out and there are two close up tables.
They do shows in the theater, but when I was there one of the magicians was working on their act for a TV appearance. We all watched and gave feedback.
Will has made the Magic Garage more than a hangout, but a valuable resource for magicians!
