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

Sam Rodgers - I am a mixed media artist that focuses mainly on watercolour and digital printmaking. Most of my art is based on how I may be feeling on a particular day, I like to express myself through floral art and abstract forms of different flowers. I love to work digitally; this allows me to create a cohesive series of prints. Although I have a humongous appreciation for watercolour and acrylics paints. One of my favourite parts of creating art is to explore the different textures certain mediums have to offer.

For the last year, I have been focusing on creating work digitally to demonstrate how these pieces can still uphold the standards of handmade art. Creating art digitally helps aid our planet by limiting supplies and creates a more affordable way for everyone to practice art. For more information or questions feel free to contact me at
