Blue Chair Cafe
Blue Chair Cafe
Casual, eclectic and electric. The Blue Chair Cafe provides a comfortable place to spend an evening with friends sharing exciting food, wine and music.
During the day, a large bank of south facing windows allows for plenty of sunshine to enjoy a coffee, drink or snack with friends or work on your laptop with complimentary wi-fi access.
Every one of the 80 seats has an excellent sightline to the stage. Half of the room is on an elevated floor, and the tables at the rear are taller, allowing for an excellent view from wherever you sit. Acoustics are excellent everywhere in the room, even from the seats at the bar.
The decor is colorful and decidedly bohemian. But don't let that fool you, the food is world class. Our kitchen is passionate about its "from scratch" nature, and our ethnic dishes are true to form. With a menu inspired by Harold's world travels and a stage that sees some of the best artists from across Canada and around the world, the Blue Chair is sure to provide a memorable evening out.
The Blue Chair Cafe was born in 2005, a product of the marriage of a passions for food and music. The owner, Harold Wolllin, is a red seal chef, and a musician at heart.
The room struck a chord immediately, hitting En Route Magazine's Top 100 Canadian restaurants the first year. Our unique blend of music, food and ambience continues to rate us with the best in the country.
The "Chair" grew from a humble little cafe 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 interfere with your neighbors.
