Welcome

If you’re planning a visit to The Magic Castle, there are a few things you’ll need to know. We trust you can keep a secret.

There's A Lot To See So

Try To Avoid Blinking

the art and architecture of the Magic Castle are unique. Plan enough time to explore the Castle's many secrets, spirits and surprises, including visiting with the Castle's resident ghost.

Our dress code is a time-honored tradition that has been in place since our inception in 1963. To capture the elegance of ‘Old Hollywood,’ the sophistication of a classic era, and the refinement of fine dining, we require all members and guests to contribute to this tradition by reflecting this savoir faire in your attire when enjoying our magic home.

Before you come to the Magic Castle, we would like you to know about our club rules:

  • You must be a member of the club or have a valid printed invitation from a member in-good-standing to access the club. Non-members with a Guest Card must surrender the invitation upon arrival and check-in.
  • As per California state law, valid photo identification is required on your person at all times (e.g. driver’s license, passport, or state-issued ID). Guests who arrive without proper ID will not be permitted into the clubhouse.
  • Our Dress Code is strictly enforced at all times.
  • Guests are required to dine with us and reservations are required!
  • NO ONE under 21 years-of-age will be admitted into the club at any time except for Saturday Brunch and Sunday Brunch.
  • Photography is not allowed inside the club except for the exterior photo opportunity, lobby, and by the official House Photographer.

 

Unacceptable Attire

  • Casual or athletic attire, such as denim (including colored denim, jean-style pants (with rivets and patch pockets), shorts, short-length jumpers, sweat pants/track suits, cargo pants, ‘skorts,’ leggings (worn as pants), outdoor jackets (including leather motorcycle or bomber-style jackets), T-shirts, tanks, bare midriffs & casual headgear.
  • Flip-flops, casual sandals, athletic-style shoes (including leather athletic shoes), work boots, casual boots (clean cowboy boots are acceptable), clogs, deck shoes, and slippers. Children under the age of 12 may wear clean athletic shoes during Brunch hours only.
  • Excessively revealing clothing, distressed, torn, or worn fabric that could be viewed by our membership as generally offensive.
  • Please note that while some dress code requirements may be subjective, management reserves the right to decline admission to anyone they feel are not in proper attire. Please call with questions beforehand if you are unsure about any of these rules.

Please be sure that every member of your party has a valid picture ID--drivers license or government issued photo identification--with them.
