You want blues? You got it here......

Blues every day. That's the deal here. The owners don't try to appease all audiences. They know what they like, what their customers want, and they stick with it!

Not a blues club nor is it named Dr. Rockits ..it's a country western bar in a not so safe looking area. $23 for 2 shots and 1 drink which weren't that good. Bummer! Bartender was friendly though!

It's supposed to be a blues bar but they played everything but seems like. They don't serve the alcohol that I like (Hypnotiq). And some of my drink was spilled. The waitress did her job, but her attitude...I felt she could have been more hospitable.

Great music and atmosphere. The drinks were good and the beer cold. Comfortable seating when you get there early enough. Overall cool place to hang out.

This place is actually not Dr Rockits any more, it's Rockit's Whiskey Bar. However, they have kept the live music and, most importantly for Corpus, the blues. I came by for free drinks and apps with a group of co-workers, so was really early-4pm. Music doesn't start til about 9. Still, there was a fair sprinkling of customers around, everyone... More
