“Great Music Venue”
Review of The Rocking Chair - CLOSED

The Rocking Chair
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 October 2016

One of Sheffield's finest little venues for new bands .
Set on 2 floors , upstairs is the bar area with DJ's playing some decent sounds , but downstairs is the best place. A very small intimate room , tiny stage & another bar .
Capacity in the "Live" area is around 100 people giving it a great atmosphere. I've seen some of Sheffield's finest bands play here ; Faerground Accidents, Bang Bang Romeo, The Time Sellers, Conor Houston all using this as a springboard to bigger things.
Without places like this there would be no music scene in major towns & cities.

The reviews bemoaning the bar facilities are ridiculous , this is a Live music venue , running on a budget ,yet still not ripping people off with high admission fees & stupid beer prices. Yes the bar doesn't always have the drinks you want , but it almost always has the right bands .TOP VENUE!!!!

The best little music venue in Sheffield... Nothing like it in the city that supports local up and coming bands.... Great music... Great bar...what more can I say.

Visited around 7pm before a gig. Quiet to begin with but soon livened up, comfy couches to sit on and good prices, double vodka and a mixer for 4quid is a good price anywhere these days so defo recommended. Well done guys AAAA++++

Had a fantastic night Balsamo/Deighton supporting Callaghan at this intimate venue, great atmosphere, great performances, who cares about a large selection of drinks when this kind of amazing talent for £8 is on offer.
