The Rubber Ducks Rule!

Could it be the free Rubber Ducky that draws vacation and business visitors from all around the world to the Chancellor Hotel year after year?  Yes! Each room has a friendly ducky in the bathroom for guests to adopt and take home…

I’m always raving about the extraordinary the Customer Care and the friendly efficient staff at the Chancellor Hotel Union Square, host of our Parlor. It’s one of the reasons we feel our San Francisco Magic Parlor is a great fit and the perfect home for our magic theatre.

But there are lots of convenient Boutique Hotel amentias at the Chancellor:

  • Complimentary coffee, tea, apples... and fresh baked cookies around the clock.
  • Pillow Menu with 12 different pillow options to choose from.
  • Free Wireless Internet Access throughout the Hotel.
  • On site restaurant serving breakfast and lunch, or room service.
  • A full service Bar with evening Happy Hour.
  • Use of the nearby Club One Fitness Center.
  • Discounted overnight off-site or valet parking for guests.  
  • Over-sized Bath Tubs… like in the old days.
  • 32" LCD flat panel TVs with On Demand Movies & Free HBO.
  • Free Local Calls/800 Calls and Two Phone Lines in all Rooms.
  • Iron & Ironing Board, Personal Safe, Umbrellas, in every room.
So… take a break and enjoy the historic Chancellor Hotel.
And… be sure to tale in a performance at our San Francisco Magic Parlor theatre.

Then second a view of our little stage as seen by the audience.

The Talk of the Town!

Our San Francisco Magic Parlor is becoming the “talk of the town. Wow… nice to know word is spreading and we’re going viral.

Over the past few weeks when guests were asked how they heard about the theater they replied “Well, it’s all over the internet.”

The San Francisco Magic Parlor has become a staple of Union Square by offering our diverse blend of magical entertainment to natives and visitors to the City. 

We’d love our Parlor Partners to become a part of the creative process. Let us know about your experience at the San Francisco Magic Parlor theater. Email us, contact us on Facebook and Twitter.

Word of mouth is still the most effective …and flattering… way we have to keep our little theater full!

Just what is it you do???

People I’m introduced to often ask: “Exactly what is it you do?”

I’m certainly not a “traditional magician”
I’m no longer “an actor” in the traditional play sense.
How do you define the undefinable?

RACONTEUR (rac-on-teur)
1. a person who tells anecdotes in a skillful and amusing way.
    Synonyms: narrator - storyteller

CONJURER (con-jur-er)
1. a person who conjures spirits or practices magic.
2. a person who practices legerdemain.
3. a person who charges or entreats.

Maybe that says it all…
