Rock City was all set to be a great venue and great night out. Great music and great value for money. The only problem being the aggressive and unprofessional bouncers. I was grabbed by a bouncer and dragged down a flight of stairs. No explanation and no opportunity to walk out of my own accord. My right arm is bruised... More

Went to Rockcity to watch Example, who my boyfriend and I are very big fans off him. We arrived at 4 and to our surprise we were right at the front of the queue. However, at 6, 30minutes before the doors were meant to open, 2 different groups jumped the queue, which one was clear that she had broken her... More

I am shocked at the lack of compassion this place showed me when I recently got my phone stolen on the dance floor, I will never come back here! I recommend if anyone goes in here keep hold of your handbag as you will be watched by thieves from the top balcony. They then approach and distract you while another... More

Great little venue! Nice to see reasonable drinks prices unlike many other gigs I've been too. No up tight over bearing security either. 👍 We left after the gig & returned later in the evening to see what was going on. (Free entry with earlier stamp). There's a few different rooms mostly frequented by teenagers/students (made me feel old at... More

This club is well worth a visit if you are into your rock music! Msuic is good and the beer not too expensive.

Came here whilst visiting friends in Nottingham, on a night out. Open later than anywhere else in Notts and very cheap drinks for a City. Atmosphere is pretty amazing, and good music. Certainly one of the best clubs I've been to in the UK! Absolutely rammed, but this is expected in a place like this. Service at the bar is... More

Went here on a student night and from what I can remember as I got hammered on the cheap 2 4 1 cans of tubborg is that it is a good night out as this justifies it. Loud rock music from what I remember but don't count on me for this one lol

Always a fun night here, I have seen many many bands here and every time has been a winner. Great atmosphere, not band staff. Could do with a floor that seems to get sticky less. The sticky floor is the biggest letdown to me. The service at the bar could be quicker and the toilets could be cleaned maybe... Other... More
