I took my 2 daughters (25 & 22) to the Gabrielle Aplin concert at Rock City on Friday 4th February - first time i'd been. I loved the small venue - despite the very sticky floors. It has a secure and cheap cloakroom where you can safely leave your coats, several bars with reasonably priced drinks and different floor levels... More

My husband and I went to RockCity for a Concert(H.I.M.). It was more spacious than I thought it was going to be. Don't get me wrong, its a small venue, but not tiny. The club had several bars so it was easy to get a drink. There was lots of security! There were no problems at all. Go if you... More

Great venue and great acoustics, the 2 pints glasses helped due to the queues and the drinks were the usually expensive prices the same as other venues, bar was understaffed but the door and bar staff were very friendly and efficient.

I've been to this venue twice in 2015, the last time to see Ghost, its a great venue to be able to see the band from pretty much all areas of the building. The doorman and ticket collectors are efficient and the bar staff friendly. There is car parking a very short walk away so parking for this venue is... More

It was my first visit to this venue and I was not disappointed. A great view of the band, no matter where you stood. Drinks reasonably priced and did not have to wait long. The only thing I didn't like was the toilets that we used which turned out to be unisex, which we weren't aware of until we saw... More

Rock city is always the place we go after pre-drinks. It is always fab with great music and cheap drinks, always has a good atmosphere. The only problem is the sticky floors. That is the only criticism.
