Lost my iPhone at a university student night, after searching the club we found my phone had slipped inbetween a hole in the wall! The staff were so helpful and kind and even called their maintenance team to help. Thanks so much rock city- you're the best!

Been to Rock City a few times, the place is a perfect venue for gigs, small enough to be intimate, big enough to attract the best bands. Highly recommended

I visited this venue for the Billy Talent show last October, and I had understood that the venue has a kind of national reputation for hosting good shows. Apparently not, as our experience informed us. We arrived about fifteen minutes before the band were due onstage, to find that they had already been onstage for five minutes. We ran to... More

Honestly such genuine vibes. Not cheesy or lame. Incredible setup, sound system, and crowds. Always packed when I come here

I love this venue, it's definitely on of my favourites! We came here for live music and the club afterwards. As a venue, it is fantastic. Great sound, a nice wide floor so you don't feel squashed in, great bars. The club afterwards is great, several rooms so lots of choice for music. It's centrally located and you can get... More

Rock city is very good in terms of being a club with the exception of the bouncers who need to chance their attitude.

For example: two female friends of mine needed to use the toilet and the line... More

All my favorite music is on upstairs but can't get up due to my power chair. If you could consider this my experience would be fantastic!

I've been to Rock City dozens of times. More than I can remember. Not so much in recent years but dozens of times. It's a fantastic venue for live music, both in the basement and in the main hall. It's always been a bit... well... under cared for. I've noticed the last couple times I've been that my feet stick... More
