Do "Magic Bars" (マジックバー) (is there a more common term for it in English?), bars at which magic is performed, exist outside of Japan?

I know (but I've never been to any of them) a few places like this one in Madrid but they are not very popular. They usually offer the option of having dinner in front of the magicians while they perform tricks, sometimes involving the audience in some degree or another.
The description of the show is a bit vague:
El espectáculo consistirá en Magia de cerca por las mesas + 1 hora de Magia & Humor donde los comensales más animados podrán colaborar con nuestros magos en la elaboración de sus trucos.
Which translates roughly (if someone feels like he/she could improve the translation feel free to do it) as:
The show will have two parts: one hour of magic around the tables + one hour of "Magic+Humor" when the most extroverts customers will be able to help our magicians when performing their tricks.
I expect that the situation is similar in other major cities.
I don't know if this is what you were looking for exactly.
