Attending a Roger Taylor concert and unlike every other venue I have been to this tour there was no checking of COVID vaccination status.

Better music
Oct 2021
Good venue with a good setting. Need to improve on the type of music as it is a scene more for young people and they tend to play a lot of hippy rock stuff

Crisis and Rebel Rebel
Sep 2021 • Friends
Rebel Rebel on the Saturday was good in terms of the atmosphere and drinks which are always reasonably priced (2.70 for a single and mixer). Relatively easy to get served at the bar, only downside was that it was far too hot inside and the music seemed to go downhill after 1am.

However we returned for Crisis and what a change! Music stayed consistent and great all night, air conditioning on creating a lovely temperature and really easy to get served. Fantastic night.

Awful service and overcrowded
Sep 2021
We waited 45 minutes for drinks while stood at the very front of the bar. The bartender's seemed high and were more interested in checking their phones than serving.

poor handling of lost /potentially stolen property
Sep 2021
Went to RC last weekend (sat night) and my phone went missing there- not sure if i dropped it or if it got nicked. However i am so disappointed with how RC have handled it. emailed the dedicatwd lost property email and havent been able to get a reply still ( now wednesday) and my phone is pretty essential for me and im devastated. Gave up and called the main number yesterday - no luck. Normally love rC but this has tainted it for me :((

Surprisingly accessible!
Sep 2021
We were given tickets for a gig at Rock City. The website advised that there are steps, and I wasn’t sure how accessible it would be. (If we hadn’t booked we may not have). The security staff were amazing. They assisted us in through a fire exit where there were less steps and are the most friendly and helpful staff I’ve experienced from a disability perspective.

The room is a great layout for a gig, the sound and facilities were great.

We’ll be back!

Bully Bouncers
Aug 2021 • Friends
Bouncers here are awful. Bullies and start more trouble than they sort. All night i saw them pushing people about. Some lad even got a few smacks for dropping his drink - accidentally. Don't recommend.

DO NOT ATTEND ROCK CITY- unsafe, dangerous, very dirty and a complete waste of money!
Jul 2021 • Friends
DO NOT ATTEND THIS CLUB: Both my friend and I were inappropriately manhandled out of the club despite us being very cooperative when asked to leave. The bouncers on the outside door admitted that we were thrown out for no reason, mocked us but didn’t let us back in. I suspect the venue had been oversold and was too cramped so they there just throwing people out.

It’s a complete waste of money: I am a student so I’m always on a tight budget; I treated myself to this event on the night of clubs opening once safe due to the covid situation. I was physically thrown out not even an hour into stepping into the club.

The bouncers use inappropriate force in a way which is dangerous and unsafe. One of the toilet doors was smacked so hard into my face I had a huge bruise covering my face and ear.

The reason I am only writing this complain now is because I have previously emailed the Rockcity team, specifically the manager of the club, and have been ignored now five times. I took time to write out exactly what happened on this night so the manager would have a fair understanding of the situation, with no response I am forced to write this complaint.

This club is NOT SAFE to attend and is a dangerous environment to put ourself in because the bouncers are bullies and the manager does not care about the welfare of the attendees.

Despite being treated like this I was given no compensation. I have seen on previous complaints the owner does reply to bad reviews on here for the sake of his reputation however do not be fooled.

OVERALL: I do not recommend this club, despite it being unsafe, the club itself is very average, the music is cheesy and the toilets are always in a state. The overall cleanliness of the nightclub (bars, dance floor and outside area) is disgusting which is quite concerning given we are still fighting the coronavirus pandemic. You’d expect more from such a big club!
