Our Chef has taken the time to ensure only the freshest ingredients are used.   We have a new winter menu, added a couple of items to our brunch menu and introduced a children’s menu. We hope you enjoy our choices.

We have always been and continue to be family friendly.  Our new children’s menu includes breakfast and combo meals that have been recommended first hand!

They can also be altered for gluten and vegan friendly options, just ask your server.

We support local food producers and suppliers.

Keeping up the Bar

Beer: We carry 7 great brews from Sea Change and Alley Kat on tap.
Wines:  our favourite house pours and a limited selection of premiums from our cellar.
Spirits:  A good selection of tequilas, mezcals and single malts will still be available, and replenished as needs demand. Our bartender will prepare some popular and tasty cocktails—from classic Manhattans and Martinis to our specialty Caipirinhas, Margaritas and the best Mojito in town—yes, we always squeeze real limes. 

Live Music

Blue Chair has been one of Canada's premiere live-music listening rooms for 17 years.

Update: November 26, 2020
We proudly support our local musicians however, with the new restrictions we are on hold.  Please “stay tuned” as soon as possible we will bring them back! Thank you for supporting live music.

Blue Chair is a gem! Local musicians Chloe Albert and Kyle Mosiuk put on a performance that was much appreciated by a full house crowd. Kudos to the crowd for being respectful and there was little talking over the players. Award winning Alley Cat beer was available. A menu with options for all kinds of diners offering tasty in house specialties. Cozy decor, who could ask for more. Thanks to Harold for such a great table!

Great!! Best Eggs Benedict combinations. How often do you see that the Spinach stems have been cut off? Amazing! Presentation, service & atmosphere, 5 star. Live music later, call first.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Blue Chair last summer. From the start of planning the party to the night of, Harold and his staff were wonderful and made things very easy for us. Harold was enthusiastic about creating a specialized tapas menu for us and our guests still rave to us about how delicious (and abundant) the food was. He also helped us find great live music that was a blast to dance to. We are so happy we chose the Blue Chair as our venue. It was everything we hoped for and more. I wish we could do it again!

Current Art Exhibition

Caleb Snee, a born and raised Albertan, grew in up in Lethbridge and moved to Edmonton in 2005. Along side his career in firefighting, he specializes in firefighting photography and has more recently become engaged with wildlife photography. His passion for his career has helped to create some beautiful images, but it also requires that he take some downtime for himself when he has the chance. Getting out into nature and taking the time to be in the moment with the animals and his surroundings allows him that time to decompress. The beauty and emotion that Caleb finds behind the lens are the reason he wants to share his photography with the rest of us. Whether it is capturing the heat of the moment, that him and his colleagues face everyday, or the soft quiet wings of an owl, these images are sure to evoke a feeling. Caleb is the type of man who can make friends with a fence post (and based on a couple great photos, I’m sure he has), he is friendly and inviting to have a conversation with and there is no question why animals are drawn to him and feel safe around him. When he isn’t taking photos, Caleb also enjoys rugby, travel, camping and hanging out with his wife and 3 dogs. Along with his broad catalogue of wildlife, landscape and firefighting, Caleb also has experience as an official photographer for the World Food Championships and the Canadian food Championships, photographing people’s children, pets, cars, weddings, engagements, family portraits, graduation, boudoir and has done some commercial photography as well. He is available to hire for whatever photography needs you may have. All of the artwork you find displayed around the café are for sale, additional prints and styles/sizes are also available.  |   |   Instagram : @snee16
