The Blue Chair Cafe was born in 2005. The owner, Harold Wolllin, is a red seal chef, and a musician.
The concept of combining food and music struck a chord immediately, hitting En Route Magazine's Top 100 Canadian restaurants the first year. Our unique blend of live music, food and ambience continues to rate us with the best in the country.
The "Chair" grew from a humble little restaurant with a tiny stage into one of Canada's premier live music venues. Many of Canada's best music acts have graced the stage, but we have never lost sight of Edmonton's own vibrant music scene. Although we pride ourselves as a "listening room", on most nights your conversations are allowed to continue as long as they don't compete with the performance. Be warned that for some shows your full attention will be expected.
But the real focus of the Blue Chair remains on the food. We are a restaurant first. Our live music presentations are usually on weekend nights, and our Sunday Brunch is a mainstay in Edmonton's scene.
