Sleight-Of-Hand Magic & Closely Guarded Secrets

Join Atlas Obscura for a secret soirée exploring sleight-of-hand magic at one of West Hollywood’s hidden wonders.

Close-up Magic suspends the laws of physics and invites you to experience the impossible unfolding just inches before your eyes. Gathered at a private lounge in West Hollywood with fellow explorers, you will experience awe, wonder, and disbelief during a series of immersive performances, culminating with a conversation about the inner workings of the magician's mind. 

Siegfried Tieber, our host for the evening, is a Los Angeles based actor and illusionist who specializes in sleight-of-hand magic. Born and raised in Ecuador, he moved to Los Angeles in 2012 and became a member of The World Famous Magic Castle, an exclusive private club devoted to the advance of the magical arts, where he is a regular performer. In 2015 Siegfried headlined at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival—the largest arts festival in the world—where his performance was highly praised by critics and media outlets. 

A Secret Hideout: This intimate gathering will take place in a Bohemian-style lounge frequented by an eclectic mix of artists and world travelers. Located just off of Sunset Blvd in the heart of West Hollywood, this tranquil refuge is one of the premiere private spaces in LA. A magnificent art collection (including Dali, DeKooning, and Rauschenberg), an exotic garden (proudly recognized as a Hummingbird and Butterfly Sanctuary by the National Wildlife Federation), and 360-degree views of the Hollywood Hills await you. Follow your curiosity and discover some of the closely guarded secrets of the Magical Arts.
