Stay away - we got attacked.

Yes, they played the music we like, yes we had a good time, until.... Until we paid a 198 tbh bill with a 1000 tbh note. The girl with a baby on her hip never came back with change. We asked nicely about it and before I could blink I was being dragged around by my hair and now I have scratch marks on my body. We did not do anything wrong - we were the only people in there at the beginning of the night. We even tipped the people, how did we deserve this? I would recommend that you rather stay away. Just our opinion.

Have been here a few times and never been disappointed. This latest visit was by far the best. A group of us went in to have a few drinks and watch the band. A huge thanks to the band who, after they finished their set let my 17 year old son (who is an accomplished musician) loose on the drums to do a 5 minute solo accompanied by the band's bassist. The audience loved it! I would highly recommend this bar to anyone who wants to have a few drinks, watch a quality band but not get hassled by the usual 'you buy you buy' of the Thai trinket sellers. Fantastic!!

METAL!!! \m/
Apr 2018 • Friends
I love metal and hard rock and trying to find somewhere near Bangla Road that catered for this genre was impossible! It was by chance that I came across this bar and OMG, it was everything I hoped for! The band was AMAZING and they played everything from Black Sabbath, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Bon Jovi to ACDC and Scorpions.
It was my hen's night and while my friends preferred doof doof music, I made them stay until the end of the band's set and even they had a good time watching the band parading around in my hen's veil!
Talented band with good stage presence. Will definitely be visiting there on our next trip to Phuket!

Friendly staff (although could do without the pressure to buy syringe shots), great band playing old rock from 1970s to 1990s with really good selection of singers up front. Nice place to just relax and listen, or to get up and dance.

If you like Rock music
Apr 2018 • Friends
Old school Rock - Everything from Black Sabbath to Bon Jovi - Scorpions to Guns and Roses and Yes ACDC. Great musicians - Especially NOK the guitarist. The Singers come a go a little but usually there will be a treat .Great place to have a cold beer at reasonable price - especially during happy hour. ROCK music the way it should be played!! Been coming here for years, and every time we are in Patong we spend a least one night here :)

Really cool rock music bar

A really cool indoor bar if you like listening to live rock music without being hassled by the other “activities” of Phuket like pole dancing.

Rock the night!!
Nov 2017 • Friends
I know this place for so many years. It has always been my favorite place for listening good rock / heavy music. Going to Rock City you're sure you will not have to listen to the various "Despacito" and other musical obroups. The tracks of Iron Maide, AC / DC, Europe, Whitesnake etc etc are guaranteed.
This time in particular I'm sorry about 2 things:
-I did not find the BKK SUPERSTAR, certainly one of the most inexperienced bands. Instead, his guitarist (who had a beautiful Ibanez Steve Vai signature, and now has a Charvel), he is definitely among the best guitarists in Patong.
In november few music bands.
-This last time I heard a very unpleasant sound. Not for the instruments (guitar, drums, bass, and keyboards that just feel), but the bass in the voice, which made it rewrite and made the performance very unpleasant. The friends I was with I wanted to go out.
One night I saw the keyboard player sitting in the lobby and told him, but he maybe did not speak English and did not understand.
I would not seem like a fuss, but I saw people bothered by this phenomenon.
I understand that the problem is about adjusting the singer's microphone. If you do not understand, you hear only an unpleasant sound and maybe go out of the room.
In case the singer's microphone setting has remained the same in the last 3 weeks, I would suggest lowering the bass, increasing the average and decreasing slightly the acute.
Last tip. Avoid the songs being ruined by drunk people on the stage. All the bands are very good! Karaoke let us elsewhere.
