In Paris, a bar is becoming the meeting place for magic lovers
More than just a simple café or auditorium, Le Double Fond bar, run by a troupe of magicians, gives all magic lovers the chance to meet and exchange views.
The name of the bar sets the tone: ‘Le Double Fond’ (the false bottom) throwing customers straight into the world of magic. That’s no surprise when the waiters, who are all professional magicians, perform magic tricks at the customers’ tables. Not only do the customers benefit from a personalised spectacle, but they also have the chance to chat to the magicians, to meet them and ask them questions.
The venue also serves as an auditorium. In fact every evening there is a new show which reproduces classic magic shows in an intimate atmosphere. The venue also offers shows that are specially adapted for children.
This bar sees itself as a ‘magic theatre café’ and is always full. It has even become a meeting place for all amateur and professional magicians.
More than just a traditional theatre café, Le Double Fond also organises magic lessons and conferences for professional magicians who can share their best tricks.
