This week, at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort, a new bar opened up in the location that used to be Seashore Sweets. Abracadabar is a new bar located on the Boardwalk themed very nicely around the 1940’s Golden Age of magic shows. Disney Parks Blog describes it as a lounge that was the “former stomping ground for the famous magicians, boardwalk illusionists, and lovely magician’s assistants of the Golden Age. After a show, prestidigitators would gather to “conjure” up new cocktails, swap magic tips and tricks, and stay up all night attempting to “out-charm” each other with their extraordinary illusions. According to BoardWalk lore, it was on just such an evening that every single magician in the lounge vanished into thin air, and was never seen again …”
“Now, after sitting vacant for nearly seventy years, the secret magician’s lounge is now back in the spotlight and making its world debut as ‘AbracadaBar.’”
Disney Parks Blog goes on to describe the inside of the lounge as a “sophisticated social club of some of the most famous illusionists of the 20th century”. Featured items and décor range from magic show posters that are enchanted, period props from the Gold Age era, mirrors guaranteed to mystify, and even signature cocktails names after some of the world’s best illusionists and their magic tricks.
