Founder of Bay Area Dinner Show Dan Chan

Dan is working on an innovative concept, bridging the three worlds he knows intimately: high profile corporate clients, fine dining experiences and ultra-high-end customized entertainment experiences.

Born and raised in San Francisco, Dan Chan developed an appreciation of fine dining later in life. After dining at many of the Michelin star restaurants around the world incuding Manresa, COMMIS, Chez TJ, Plumed Horse, Spruce, T'ang Court, Jean-Georges, and the Village Pub Dan decided to merge a high-end fine dining experience with entertainment. Realizing that his entertainment did not fit the venue, he created a brand of entertainment that would fit into existing venues. This new show was able to blend seamlessly into the existing environments of fine dining establishments without distrubing patrons. As a result of this unique understanding and vision, Dan was able to create customized intimate shows for his high profile clients at the Plumed Horse and Micheal Mina’s Arcadia.

In his spare time, Dan stages at other Michelin rated venues. He has staged at Petit Crenn, Lazy Bear, COI, and most recently Californios. He is currently working on moving this pop-up concept into a permanent dining venue.

Recognized as the best of the best, Dan Chan Master Magician attracts a discerning audience with a shared appreciation and desire for fine dining and entertainment. Dan's corporate clients include Adsemble, Airbnb, Apple, Bank of America, BitTorrent, Buzzfeed, BMC, Breathometer, Charles Schwab, Chevron, Cloudflare, CISCO, DOCOMO Innovations, Ebay, Falconstor, Golden State Warriors, Google, HP, IBM, Intel, Kleiner Perkins, Merrill Lynch, Novartis, Oracle, PayPal, Pfizer, Pitney Bowes, Quora, Radio Disney, Roche, Sequoia Capital, SF Giants, Shutterfly, Sony Play Station, Specialized Bicycle, Thumbtack, USMC, VISA, Wells Fargo, Wild Aid, Yahoo, Zuckerberg Hospital.

His achievements, however, have never deterred him from the ultimate goal as an entertainer—to make unforgettable moments for his guests!

"Back in the 50's a dinner show almost always included a magician. The Bay Area Dinner Show crew certainly is doing its best to get us back to that magical time. I recently hosted a company party for 50 people at the Dynasty Seafood Restaurant with Dan and Kat and their merry band of prestidigitators. Not only were the party guests amazed and delighted, they were also laughing and shaking their heads in astonishment. All of the performers were very talented, too. I recommend this team very highly if you're looking for party entertainment that isn't the same old stuff. Fun, family-friendly, and fantastic!"
