Rock Box is not to my taste, because the music is simply too heavy in there.
Initially I was excited by the prospect of 'rock box' finally thinking I'd found somewhere that would play a good mix of rock music that breaks away from the norm. Instead, it's mostly heavy stuff and only occasionally broken up by 'softer' rock music (like guns n roses, rage against the machine, nirvana, foo fighters etc.) which is a lot closer to my ideal.
Of course if you like slipknot and slayer, you probably want to read my review as being 5 stars and a great place to hang out. Downstairs is more the 'bar' area. Upstairs there's more space for moshing, or sitting down with your drinks.
I've also only ever been on a Friday or Saturday night, maybe they play different stuff on different nights, but I'm not sure and wouldn't count on it.
