The Norva is an awesome venue and they bring in all these really cool acts to Va. I wish half the bands that came here would come to Richmond The only thing I DON'T like about the Norva is the attitude of the staff, there is a rougher crowd there and I guess the security has to deal with that...

Saw MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE on March 18th. Amazing band performance and the venue was really nice. Met the band afterward. Great night!

not a bad seat in the house, If you're lucky enough to get VIP the view from that side is great.. the Lounge is nice, drinks are a little expensive but the staff is great..

Huge venue with handicap accessible balcony. That's about the only good thing I can say. security rushed people out of VIP area before the band was done talking to them. Staff treats patrons like trash, waters down drinks and charges too much for them. I understand they have a job to do but they don't have to nearly assault people... More

The NorVa was an excellent venue to be in and I will be returning in the future. The staff was excellent and helped answer any questions I had. And of course the show was amazing!

The sound quality was pretty decent, I had a good time. Maybe it was the band, but my first Norva experience was a great one and I would def go back for the right show.

I love The Norva! Its in downtown Nofolk and steps away from the light-rail. Its small and comfortable and the acoustic are the absolute best in Va. If you haven't been there, then you are really missing out!

When we got there we were 5 back from the stage. At intermission we were15... More

One of the best Venues for Concerts we have been to. Handicapped Access . Wonderful Staff. Owner is an awesome person. They went out of their way to make sure we could see the concert which when you have a wheel chair is difficult at times. We fully recommend this venue for concerts to everyone. They are listed on Americas... More
