Great intimate magic show in Old Town. Fun for locals looking for something new to do or out of town visitors. Lots of guest interaction! Grab dinner at a close by Mexican restaurant and walk over. Easily accessible from trolley.

Having never been to something like this, we were just amazed - Sebastian is an artist, well worth going!

When visiting in San Diego, make time and take time to spend an evening at the Red Spade Theater. If you are lucky enough to see "Senastian" perform, you will be so happy. Engaging, friendly, talented and so much fun...he will astound you with his "up-close" performance and sleight of hand maneuvers, one after another. Make sure your ears are... More

A. MAZ. ING. I absolutely LOVED this show. I have been to the Magic Castle in Hollywood many years ago and really love intimate magic and Sebastian did not disappoint! I was blown away left and right, even when I was a part of the trick! It was an awesome evening and I highly recommend it. I am actually collaborating... More

We were sitting five feet from Sebastian and could not see the cards disappear or find their way into a deck of cards. Intimate theater just next to a nice wine bar made the evening a real treat for out of town visitors. If you are there on a Saturday night, this is a show not to be missed.

Sebastian and the Red Spade Theater are the best ongoing show in San Diego (Old Town area). In a quaint and very small setting, he works his magical show and showmanship to the delight of everyone. He knows how to work the audience and handle the skeptics. The things he does are mind-boggling. He brings on the awes and the... More

Sebastian is great: makes us wonder HOW he does it, puts smiles on people's faces. It was our last night in San Diego and he (Sebastian the Magician) put a "cherry on top" of our small vacation! I Highly recommend this wonderful magic place :-)

2 adults. Wow, Fun, Exciting, Mesmerizing! I was invited by my wife's company for a night of food, drink, and magic and I was not let down! Sebastian made the evening enjoyable and memorable, his storytelling mixed in with his art of magic allowed the crowd to get involved both personally and spiritually. I was there with my wife's coworkers... More

Sebastien has taken a small intimate venue in San Diego's Old Town and turned it into a magic parlour. It isn't a stage venue. It could be an intimate close up experience but today was the Amazing Derrick. He did a family oriented kids show that takes place once a month on Sunday. We had out two nieces (age 10... More

Came here with my 14 year old son to see Intimate Miracles by Sebastian. The ad said 18 years old and over. I wrote and they said as long as he was quiet (to not interrupt the show) he was welcome. I thought I had read that it was first come, first be seated but that is not true. The... More
