Hello everyone! Welcome to a unique experience.

The Illusions Theatre & Bar

Magic Shop San Diego and 3 Generations, Inc. are proud to present an extraordinary dinner theater experience. Situated in the historic Gaslamp District of downtown San Diego, the Illusions Theatre and Bar is the perfect location to celebrate special occasions with a sensory experience beyond anything you can imagine. Gourmet food, fine liquors and wine enhance the spectacular entertainment from some of the most talented magicians in the country.

Once you select the date and time, you may choose between VIP and General seating.

You and your special guest/s will have an amazing selection of gourmet dinners prepared by our executive chef in a newly built state of the art kitchen.

Once your tickets are purchased, you will receive private entry passes and instructions to the secret location.

Your journey into the breathtaking Illusions Theatre and Bar will begin with a secret passage into an Escape Room. This is a fun challenge that will add to your sensory experience.

Don’t worry! It's not that hard to figure it out (eventually). If you get stuck we have a magical way to get you in…

Upon entrance into the theatre you are greeted by the host, and the captivating ambiance of Illusions Theatre. Cheers will fill the air from other guests congratulating you for conquering the escape room.

After you are seated at your beautifully set table in our intimate dinner theatre, you will enjoy magic all around you. There is literally magic in the air.

While admiring the theatre and enjoying a cocktail, and perhaps an appetizer, our house magicians will come to your table with amazing feats of prestidigitation (that’s award winning sleight of hand).

A short time later we will begin service of your 3-course dinner.   The delicious gourmet dinner you’ve selected is carefully prepared and served to you and your guests at beautifully set tables. Relax and enjoy, but don't forget to leave room for desert! It is not just visually stunning, but absolutely delicious.

Next, comes this show…

This Parlour Magic Show has been especially designed and choreographed for Illusions Theatre. It’s not just a magic show. It’s a adventure through your mind and a test of your imagination. Unexplainable things will happen. The show is based on the history of the Kellogg family. Through research of historical documents we will bring to life our family's journey into the world of magic, performing illusions that are over one hundred years old as well as some of the most current and unique routines. We strive to keep our Kellogg magic history alive and we thank you for making it happen!

The entire journey from arrival at the secret location to the conclusion of the Parlour Magic Show spans approximately 3 ½ hours.

Please arrive early to find parking. Street parking is very limited, but there is Public Parking a short walk away at 4th and F street.


Thank you, James Kellogg Jr.
