  • We operate the "Challenge 25 scheme, therefore clubs reserve the right to request proof of age if you look under 25 you. (ID Accepted: Valid Passport or Valid Drivers Licence)
  • Although the venue will endeavour to have all your party on one table larger party's may be split across tables and smaller party's may be sharing their table with other parties.
  • DRUNK AND DISRUPTIVE CUSTOMERS
  • Customers who turn up on the door who we believe to be drunk will not be admitted. From experience, customers who are drunk even before the show has started are invariably problematic later on, usually heckling, talking during the show or just being a general nuisance.
  • If someone in the group you have organised is drunk at the door they will be refused entry without being refunded. This does not mean the whole group is refused entry but if you decide you don't wish to come in because one of your group has been turned away then that does not mean you are collectively entitled to a refund, if a member of your group is disruptive during the show, we will remove the said person without hesitation and no refunds will be given to anyone if you wish to leave with the disruptive guest, so we ask that you you respect all other guest and artists.
  • Most travellers can participate
  • DURING THE SHOW
  • While we want you to enjoy our shows at Smoke & Mirrors it is important to remember that customers also need to consider other people in the room. So, bearing this in mind, we request that:
  • Mobile phones are switched to silent during the show as making and receiving calls, including texting, is rude and inconsiderate.
  • There is no talking during the show as this is disruptive and annoying for those sat around you and for the performer.
  • There is no heckling or constant interruptions of the magicians or comedians. People have paid to listen to the act not to listen to someone else in the audience.
  • And finally, owing to the proliferation of portable recording devices, it is requested that customers don't make any audio or video recordings of acts or use flash photography during the show.
  • Customers who break these house rules will be asked politely to refrain from heckling or talking during the show. Persistent offenders will be asked to leave without being refunded.
  • PRIVATE BOOKINGS
  • Please note that if you are booking the whole theatre for an event we as a theatre will seat all guests and allocate tables as your guests arrive this helps with congestion within the theatre, we understand that some of your guests may not want to sit in the front row but as this is a Magic Show and not stand up comedy not one of your guests will be made to anything they do not wish to do, but we ask that your guests are informed that the show requires audience participation, so by informing your guests that they could be on stage would be of great help to the magicians, also if you have any thing the magicians need to know before the show we would be happy to pass this is on to the magicians to make sure the show is even more special.

    We will be back!!!
    My friend and I booked an evening of magic and comedy at Smoke and Mirrors but our experience of the night completely surpassed any expectations we had. The two magicians Chris and Dan were so funny and so clever with their sleight of hand and magic powers. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it and have already recommended it to several other people. The live musician Mr Driscoll was fantastic as well. An all round brilliant night and we will be returning soon!!!!

    An incredible experience!
    Well, I have never given a review before, but this was honestly the best Magic’s show I have ever been to. Not only was the magic aspect amazing, but it was also incredibly funny. Chris and Dan were simply amazing! I live in Brazil these days, so I wanted to do something with my sister that didn’t disappoint with the limited time we had, and this show did not disappoint. Thank you so much Dan and Chris, it was out of this world!

    Brilliant evening out
    Booked this without knowing what to expect. It was brilliant. A small and intimate venue where everybody feels part of the act. The 2 magicians - Chris and Dan - were both great. Involved the audience but completely respected those who didn’t want to participate. Had no idea that the venue was there but would definitely go again.

    Good laugh
    Show was very funny, would say magic based comedy rather than comedy based magic? I thought Rich (magician) was fantastic, very clever and the tricks were good. The pizza gets some bad press in the reviews, it’s pretty basic and not going to blow you away, but for the price (we did a groupon deal) we were very pleased and the fries went down well. We did have to get something to eat afterwards but we were very impressed with the whole experience and would definitely return.

    Fantastic Thursday Date night
    We purchased the groupon voucher for pizza chips and glass of Prosecco with comedy/magician show. We did not know what to expect but this did not disappoint, from start to finish we were entertained. Mad mark the card magician was in the bar and entertained us with some mind boggling card tricks before and after the show. The show itself (Richard Newman) had us laughing till our cheeks hurt . Lots of audience participation and he was in the bar afterwards for us to say “how the hell”?? His comedy along with the magic was second to none. The food was spot on too along with a few drinks. We will definitely be back and highly recommend

    Quality comedy magic experience
    We had front row seats for tonight’s show and left incredibly impressed. Both Chris and Richard were impressive and talented magicians but also gave the audience great laughs. Better than many of the stand ups on the circuit. The atmosphere created was unforgettable and something I’d watch again and easily recommend. Thanks gents

    Nice night out
    We booked a show and then realised we couldn't make it on the same week we were going. They were super fast and accommodating to move us to the next show on the day so we could make it, no fuss or extra cost, this was greatly appreciated. The show was lighthearted and fun and it make for a nice evening, we really liked it and will be back.

    Absolutely fantastic, will return
    We decided to give this a go as we love magic and comedy and were lucky enough to be child-free for an evening. I literally laughed continuously for 2 hours. Both magicians that we saw were excellent and the bar magician, Mark, was so impressive. I desperately wanted to know how they did it… but also didn’t! Just the right amount of audience participation. We were literally front and center of the audience but were involved in a couple of bits. No making fun of audience members, just asking to help with tricks and only if the audience member wanted to. Something we really do tell all our friends about. If you’re stuck for something to do on a Friday night, you really won’t walk away feeling disappointed.

    WE WOZ COMPLETELY FOOLED - IN A GOOD WAY!
    Thoroughly entertaining evening at this quant bar/theatre just round the corner from the Bristol Hippodrome. Actually it would be a good place to pop in for a pre theatre drink. - Above us, candles appear to float in mid air beneath a ceiling peppered with playing cards. - Our sell out magic evening kicked off in the bar with some close up magic. Can't say much without spoiling it for others but the masterly combination of misdirection and sleight of hand produced some wonderful surprises, which kept us talking all the way home. - We were then led into the small (60 seat) theatre where two more magicians wowed the audience with sharp banter, hilarious trickery and a lot of audience participation. - We had pre-booked pizzas for the interval, several very tasty options to chose from and GF bases available. Bear in mind they are only 9 inch pizzas. Best to eat earlier but save some room for the pizza. - Our whole weekend in Bristol was planned around a visit to Smoke & Mirrors. We were not disappointed. - Until next time...

    Great night out!
    We went to Smoke and Mirrors with friends to celebrate the birthday. Our welcome at the bar, and booking in was friendly and efficient. The Prosecco and pizza were delivered promptly, the pizza was very tasty. We were given full instructions about what was going to happen. The show itself was funny, inclusive and entertaining. All in all we had a great night and would definitely recommend.

Went to the late show with my husband. From start to finish it was a great nite out. Magician Criss Smith kept us entertained with his brilliant magic while we enjoyed a drink and waited to be seated. The show itself was highly entertaining, Dan Chard was fantastic. The venue itself is lovely and all the staff were so friendly. Couldn't reccommend it highly enough, will definitely be visiting again when in Bristol.

This was my 4th time attending a show and did not disappoint. The group of friends I brought this time had not been before. They absolutely loved it! What a great night out! The bar staff are great, professional and welcoming. The bar magician is amazing, and so friendly. And as for the acts, brilliant! My son is attending for the first time with a group of friends in December and I know they will not be disappointed. Highly recommend.

We booked 4 seats for the Comedy and Magic show last Saturday. Had no idea what to expect but we had a brilliant evening. We laughed so much at the comedian Mark Bennet that we almost cried. The Magician was amazing and also very funny. We stayed on for the live music in the bar after the show, the music was great, bar staff very helpful and friendly so all in all a great night out.

The show was fantastic - even better than I expected! I booked this as part of a stag do and all the guys really enjoyed themselves. The magicians/comedians get the audience involved, which was hilarious! And it is such am intimate venue, which made it even better.

Would highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our visit, my wife, 2 adult children and myself visited on a Saturday night for the 7pm show.
The 2 magicians where on stage for just over 30 mins each with a short interval.
The venue only seats about 40/50 people - although we thought the size added to the atmosphere- as did the small lamps on each table.
The tricks were very good and the level of humour was spot on for an adult show, whilst there was audience participation no one was made to look foolish- it was just very entertaining.
All 4 of us said we would definitely go again.
We did eat elsewhere as there was on pizza, chips and nachos to pick from.

a great night!! thank-you smoke and mirrors for providing myself and my friends with amazing service. The comedy show was hilarious and the waitresses were so efficient and super speedy with serving us our drinks. Big thanks to the mark who provided us with magic tricks when drinking at the bar before the main event. I will definitely return for another great night.

Brilliant evening. Funny with really clever magic. Great atmosphere. Excellent table magician beforehand, Mad Mark. Dan Chard was very funny, got the audience engaged right from start and did some brilliant magic. We couldn't work out how he did it!

This is an amazing, very intimate venue. The close up magic in the bar was excellent and then the main show was two performances of excellent comedy and magic. There is something extra special about being this close to the action - so much better than watching it on TV or YouTube. Even my wife - who finds magic tricks very annoying - really enjoyed it.

A really good evening. Went with 8 family members to celebrate a birthday. Very entertaining with a good mix of comedy and magic effects. Intimate theatre made for a very good atmosphere and both the performers pitched their act perfectly. Highly recommend this and will definitely return.
