'it's about the music'    
    Our heart lies in the attentive audience experience and we are revered for creating and maintaining one of the finest intimate showcase venues in the Canadian music scene, not only locally / provincially / nationally but international as well for over 16 years. We do believe we have had and will continue to have a positive effect on live entertainment production standards for Canadian venues and we do trust that our endeavours are appreciated by our audiences and performers alike. 

 

we are entering back into the 'live audience' aspect

of the 'live streaming' of the now new normal music scene

we will have room for approx. 15 people per show

reservations preferable

(bubbles can be accommodated )

 

please

upon entering the venue a mask must be worn ( we will have some available)

hand cleanser at front door must be used before seating

and be gentle with us

it is a learning curve for everyone
