The Magician isn’t fancy, but it isn’t exactly a dive bar. It’s mostly just a normal place. Which is strange for the Lower East Side. Usually, people come down here to dance, take shots, drink fancy cocktails on a rooftop. But at The Magician, you just get a beer and drink it at an old round table with your friends in a surprisingly spacious room. So if you just want cheap drinks and a place to drink them, come here. Note: it’s cash only.
