We visited for the Good Charlotte/Less Than Jake/ Crown The Empire/ Like Pacific. The staff was really laid back. Drinks were a little costly. We paid $6 for two bottles of water. We really liked the vibe of the venue and it fit right many people inside for 4 great bands. I would definitely go again. It's in a perfect... More

went to the T.I. concert and it was awesome! The drinks are entirely too expensive ($14 for a Hennessy and coke, no extra liquor)

Have been to many shows here. It is without a doubt one of the best venues for last event music I have been to in the Hampton Roads area.

Last night my son and his wife along with my wife and I saw the group Post Modern Jukebox at this interesting venue. We had VIP tickets which got us head of the line entry and access to the VIP bar on the second floor. Whilst we stood for the entire concert, we could adjourn to the comfortable chairs and... More

Love the atmosphere of the norva!!! This is a fabulous place for concerts. The atmosphere is small, but comfortable. You can get close to the stage, and unless you have a jerk next to you, you will have a fabulous time. Explaining: my teen went to see breaking Benjamin (I was there). There was a couple next to her bragging... More

Like the other reviewer said, you have to be prepared to stand all night. This indoor smoke free venue is basically a large bar like setting. There is the main floor area in front of the stage where those who are there for the music stand smashed together, a bar to the side and a bar on the upper level... More

This is a place where you can't expect to sit down. Have the mindset to stand up and party all night while you watch the show. There is a big open floor downstairs and there's the upstairs balcony. A couple bars etc. Great sound system. Most of the ladies I saw in the place started out in their high heels... More
