It's just a click away.

At the end of the day, even Doctor Strange needs to kick it back—and its location will be very familiar to Marvel fans.

Unlike DC comics and films, which take place in fictional cities such as Metropolis and Gotham, Marvel’s properties (for the most part) are all set in the real world. The buildings are Marvel’s creation, but some of them have real-life addresses.

Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (try saying that five times fast) is located at 177A Bleecker St. in New York. His mansion in the comics sticks out from everything else around it, although that’s not the case in the real world.

So when you type that address into Google Maps, as discovered by Empire’s Chris Hewitt, you end right at Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum.

According to Entertainment Weekly, fans have already left a couple of reviews for the place—and so far they’ve mostly been positive. One complemented the business, as Google referred to it as, for cleansing an ancient artifact, while another had praise for the additional service provided.

“I came in for just a headache, the good doctor also cured my demonic possession and gave my aura a facelift,” one person wrote. “Now that’s service.”
