St. Louis Real Estate Firm Casts Its Spell

The Mad Magician restaurant and bar opens its doors to downtown music lovers.

St. Louis, MO, July 20, 2013 --( Hilliker Corporation, a St. Louis owned and managed commercial real estate company, used some supernatural powers to close its latest deal.

Archfront Media partners John Mancuso and Jason Rottler recently leased property at 5625 Manchester Rd. near downtown St. Louis and opened The Mad Magician, which will feature live music along with food and drink. The name is a tribute to the 1954 horror film that starred St. Louis native Vincent Price. Hilliker agent Hal Ball represented both the tenant and building owner HHGreece with the transaction.

The Mad Magician is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. The 5,000-square-foot building features a large patio, dining room seating for 60 patrons, and a 50 car private parking lot. Previous tenants include A-B’s Place Bar and M.P. O’Reilly’s.

“We have been booking cover and original bands since we started our company in 2008,” said partner Mancuso. “We wanted to create our own place where we could combine our love of music with some quality food selections.” Mancuso said the restaurant will feature homemade specialty sandwiches, salads and appetizers.

In addition to promoting acts at the newest venue, Archfront Media will continue booking acts throughout Missouri and the Midwest.
