NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - The NorVa's slogan "Nationally known, locally owned" was proved true Wednesday when Rolling Stone readers chose the club as the Best Musical Venue in the country.

Then, readers chose their favorites from the list, and the NorVa was number one .
"The club with the hot tub" was the phrase that began the Rolling Stone mention of the the NorVa , a venue that opened in 2000 when owner A. William Reid transformed the 1920s movie theater from the then athletic club to a rock club.
The award for best venue included, clubs, big rooms and amphitheaters throughout the U.S.
