Best Place That’s Impossible to Google

The Venue

511 Virginia Drive

We don’t mind a little challenge when it comes to tracking down our city’s newest performance spaces, but the Venue, Ivanhoe’s latest gem, was a true Boolean search puzzle when it first opened. But it was worth the digging, because once you walk into the lobby, loop through the small patio and enter the delightful main room, you’ll learn why those in the know from the theater and music communities (and private party-throwers, to boot!) have found good reason to stage their events there.
