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... 更多
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... 更多
My first visit at NorVA. We saw Band of Horses, The concert was great! The venue was very good, everyone was friendly, cool interior, casual atmosphere. Fun place to go!
My second concert at the Norva. I could easily describe it as more like a large bar. very few seats and only on second floor, downstairs was PACKED with people, Cole Swindell was sold out so capacity crowd made it difficult to even move on the floor. Had to press thru people to get a drink or to the bathroom.... 更多
I actually had high expectations for this theater when I first went, as I heard it was the sister theater to The National. The time between the opening band and the main event was something like an hour and a half (for Modest Mouse), while this would be enough to piss most off, I was patient; the crowd which appeared... 更多
I've been to probably 100 shows at NorVa and it's always a great place to check out live music. If the fact it was voted as the #1 small venue for a show by Rolling Stone Magazine doesn't make you a believer then my review surely won't. Best place to see the band up close and from a different angle... 更多
Saw BadFish there last week, awesome show. I like the venue but there are some power trip security people roaming through the crowds. Some walk up behind you and grab your waist (both hands) for you to get out of their way. Lots of groping, you would think your going through an airport check. Standing outside, a bouncer runs around... 更多
Great, local venue for live music. Have seen some great up and coming bands here. It is all standing room only with two levels so there's no bad viewing areas.
This was our first time coming here and I must say the venue was amazing I have been to other venues and figured I'd get hot because all those people in such a small section creates body heat but I wasn't hot at all the have excellent ventilation systems, there's 2 bar areas of which I noticed one on lower... 更多
I recommend getting there early enough to get a table on the second floor to enjoy the show. This is a great venue to see an act with an "up-close and personal" vibe. I prefer this venue over a stadium show anytime. Very close to hotels and restaurants. Just remember, parking in Norfolk is still a pain - so plan... 更多
