You’ll find Smoke & Mirrors in Denmark Street near the heart of the theatre district. It’s the recently opened bar that’s already making a splash on Bristol’s nightlife.


Serving Real Ales and fine wines we really do offer you the best, even our bar snacks are award winning!


There are great magic acts every weekend and once a month you can be wowed by specially booked acts featuring some of the most talented magicians in the world – all from a privileged position just metres from the stage.

Every Weekend we host Comedy Magic Nights, Stand-up Comedy or even the risqué Burlesque Nights in our Boutique Magic Theatre, it's a night to remember and we can even organise group deals for that perfect birthday party or celebration. And in the main bar we have close-up Magic and Live Music all night long

Mark Bennett’s ambition was to create a place that offers a slightly more structured evening of magic than its sister venue Illusions Magic Bar. Smoke & Mirrors has its own intimate pub theatre holding around 48 people sitting comfortably at their own pre-booked tables.
