“rock club, night club plus great bands play gigs here.”
Review of Rock City

Rock City
Ranked #4 of 134 Nightlife in Nottingham
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Some of the very best bands and artists play here. Difficult to get a good view of stage if you are short! It's a typical dindgy rock club ! Multi-storied car park practically next to it and plenty of eateries down the road and great little Rock pub also just down the road. (Toilet attendant took me by surprise, selling sweets and perfume in loos ! )

We saw Alkaline Trio here and it was our first band in Rock City. I had a coke and immediately regretted it - sickly sweet - definitely Rola Cola. Just don't bother buying drinks here they are overpriced and pretty gross. Otherwise we really like this place. Marked down because of the crazy sticky floor.

Was having a great time at Rock City until - out of the blue and without any provocation or reason - the bouncers pounced on a member of our group, floored him then dragged him away from us. Seconds later they gave the same treatment to another person in our group. We were not being disruptive or in any way causing trouble. The bouncers' unprovoked assault came out of nowhere and took us all by surprise. We never received an explanation. Absolutely disgusting behaviour. Will never return.

Rock City is a Nottingham legend having seen some of the biggest names in rock grace its stage over the years.
Even now after many changes and slight moves in direction its still a rocking venue
cheap(ish) drinks and a good atmosphere make for a good night out
don't expect luxery but go with and open mind

Great venue for a night out. Has 3 different rooms and many, many bars. I'd say watch your bag/pockets because it has a reputation for thieves and phone theft. Free to get in on a Saturday with the guest list. Just watch the floor too, i've slipped many a times (not due to alcohol, I swear…) because it's so slippy, but it's something to expect when people are spilling there drinks everywhere!
Great place for gigs too because of the different levels and balcony. You've always got a great view of the stage.
