We loved this venue! Seating was roughly 100 people. The room had nice, comfortable seats with ample leg room(even for a 6'5" guy). There was a nice bar area for intermission. Easy(free) parking. Love this place, going back Nov 2016 to see Joe Bonamassa:)

Violet's Venue is the absolute best place north of Toronto for anyone that has an interest in the Blues. This venue has 92 seats and the furthest seat from the state is around twenty feet. The sound is excellent and the talent that Bruce Maltby...More
