Here's everything you need to know about "one of the most LA places in LA," the Magic Castle. Just in time for the legendary celebrity-favored, members-only magic club's 50-year anniversary, our sister site Curbed LA has rounded up some fascinating historical facts about the Hollywood hub. For instance, did you know that the space was originally called Holly Chateau and was built in 1909? Or that it currently features chandeliers from the first Bullock's department store in Downtown?
