Some Sleight of Hand

We've spoken of the corner of Essex and Rivington before. Another great place to pint down, situated on this corner, is The Magician. Although not Imperial, it is still a solid pub that deserves it's due. According to Citysearch, it's named for an Ingmar Bergman film.

Decent jukebox, American 18oz pints, and a healthy selection of beers, all put The Magician on the map. At the very least, they don't stoop to baby pints.

6 out of 10 Pints.

Great place. Stumbled in here one night to a nice surprise of a great bar. Relaxed, low lights, great bar, and a nice selection of 30's/40s/rat pack era music. the nuts are fantastic addition as well

Agreed. Juke Box holds it's own.
