The NorVa has been chosen by Rolling Stone readers as the best music venue in America.

The venue opened in 2000 on Monticello Avenue in a building that originally opened in 1917 as a vaudeville theater, and eventually evolved into a movie theater and athletic club.

Rolling Stone says owner A. William Reid invested $6 million into the project of transforming the building into the music venue it is today.

The club boasts a hot tub, sauna, game room and basketball court on the premises, making it popular for music artists who make tour stops there.

Earlier this year, the NorVa ranked #16 in Rolling Stone’s Best Big Rooms in America list.
