I came here in 2007, got stuck to the floor and have never made it out.... send help as they are threatening to have the boyband Blue do a 'gig' soon.

I've been going to gigs here for centuries. It's a brilliant middle sized venue but don't expect plush seats and gourmet food and drinks. What you see is what you get but that's what a hot and sweaty gig should be about. Drink Red Stripe - it's the best option from behind the bar.
O, and getting out make take quite a while if it's a full house!

I love going to Rock City for gigs.
I'm not so fussed about the club nights- however that's mostly down to th clinetele, not the venue itself.

I spent most of my teenage weekends here in the late 80s. I've travelled around to a lot of venues in the UK and abroad since then but RC is still one of the best. Still black but the floor's a bit less sticky and the toilets have less bodily fluids on the floor. And NMA sound as good as ever.

Rock City is a great venue. The sound is quality and it attracts a wide range of acts. The dot to dot festival which is held every year in Nottingham uses Rock City as a venue and it is a bargain.

One tip, if you are not so tall, is to get there early to nab a spot on the balcony or raised areas around the side.
