Great club and not a bad venue for gigs

I have been coming to Rock City for over 25 years now and I'm always pleased to see that it hasn't changed too much. Club nights are excellent and there's always a huge crowd and... read more

Wonderful, very drunk night out! Paying for it now as feel as I've been hit by a train. Nice club, exactly what you want for a great night out where everyone can let loose.

Friday nights is Get Lucky with pop, RnB and chart music. Saturday nights are Hey Hey Hey so they are rock, with metal in the... More

Was having a great time but utterly ruined by the bouncers who think they are above the law, can shove into you as they walk past and then get you in an arm lock and shove you into a side room when you complain and call you an expletive to attempt to get you to react so they feel justified...

Used to be good in its day. As a club its Lost most of its 'rock'. Has chavy clubnights and some nights it will be full of idiots. Always complaints againts doorstaff. Still OK for gigs though.

Great little find, we were on a weekend away in Nottingham with some friends, we walked into the bar downstairs which was quite small but decent, we didn't realise until you walk upstairs there was a massive club full of people! Great night was spent here, decent price for drinks also.

I have been coming to Rock City for over 25 years now and I'm always pleased to see that it hasn't changed too much. Club nights are excellent and there's always a huge crowd and great atmosphere. As a venue for gigs, the main room is hit or miss for me. If you can get there early and stand on... More
