The Blue Chair serves up great food with live music on weekend nights.
Both aspects of our business operate independently, but each supports and depends on the other.
Weekdays (Tuesday - Friday) we are open at 7am, and no reservations are required, but we appreciate notice of larger groups. We close at 7pm Tuesday to Thursday.
Friday & Saturday Live Music
A unique opportunity to combine a great dinner and a musical performance.
Live Music - Cover charge supports the livelihood of the professional musicians playing at our venue. The ticket price varies depending on the performer, and can be found on our show calendar listings.
Restaurant - our livelihood comes from food and beverage sales.
On show nights, we expect that every guest meets the $25 minimum. Our menu has a great selection of appetizers, main courses and desserts to choose from. We have a wide selection of draft and craft beers, wines, and an enviable selection of single malts, tequilas and mezcals.
Seating - We assign seating in the order tickets were bought. There's not a bad seat in the house, but we have low tables, high-top tables, as well as standing room and bar seating. Dinner reservations will usually get preferred seating on low dining tables—as long as they are available. If you have physical issues and require a low table, please make that clear when making your reservation.
Friday and Saturday dinner only - If you'd like to have dinner and leave before the show starts, you may be required to arrive before 6 pm, so you can finish your dinner before the dinner/show reservations arrive. Call 780-989-2861 during our operating hours.
Show-only - Our low, dining tables will be assigned to patrons enjoying dinner and show. For those that just want to take in the show, their ticket purchase a ticket for live music, does not guarantee a low table. and will, in most cases, get them a high-top table, a seat at the bar or the standing area. The $25 minimum still applies.
