Cancellation Policy: 24 hours notice prior to the start of the show for a full refund of the deposit.

We have limited seating and request all reservations call for any adjustments to your party. The advanced notice is to help us accomodate your booking and allow us time to sell any extra tickets. 

All Friday, & Saturday Night Shows are a *$15.00 cover per person and some Thursday shows. Our brunches are by donation.

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!

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!
