From just going on a night out to going to a concert, Rock City is a great venue that always provides a great night out. Only downside is the sticky floors!

Couldn't have asked for a better night out personally. Wish the toilets were a bit bigger but that's something fairly minor.

I've seen countless bands here over the years, every single time I've been there it's been great, the drinks aren't horrifically expensive, the toilets are usually alright, the staff are always friendly. love it!

Went to the Damned gig at Rock City & was very impressed by the venue. Multiple bars (with bottles of real ale) & different vantage points to watch from . Good staff too.

Good night out on a whole. Just a shame the music wasn't that of the name of the place. Seemed like a pop and RnB night. Partly our fault due to not looking ahead as I now know the do have a more rock night...More

Attended the venue for Beat The Streets, a superb day with some great bands playing the main stage and the basement. The venue itself is excellent with reasonably priced drinks. Well worth travelling to see a band.

Nice venue, nice music! just a little bit complicated to get drinks at the bar cause there are too many people, but it’s still a very nice place!

Been coming to this venue for over 30 years and great place to see a gig. All I would say that when it is full there is little room to move around in but that is a result of how many tickets have been sold....More

Depending on how close to the front you want to be, and how popular the band is, 2 hours could be a decent wait time (: though it really does depend on those few factors!

Of course! There's no dress code, and it's a good idea to wear comfortable clothing and footwear since you'll be standing the entire time! (:
