Owner and Creator of the UK’s only dedicated Magic Theatre Pub based in the heart of Bristol

Smoke & Mirrors

Magic and more in a cosy pub theatre


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.


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


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. There’s also a separate bar in which the drink and live music flow freely.


Smoke & Mirrors bar is open to the public seven days a week from 4pm, and when the theatre is not in use it’s the perfect venue for corporate or private events in a unique, inspirational location.
