My friends and I went to Rock City for a night out and we love it each time we visit. The drinks are cheap, the establishment was clean and there are different rooms you can go in. However, I wish the smoking area was bigger.

The show was great, was really full, lots of people, fun, drinks. Just be careful at the main entrance, security no checking bags and in these days that not so good.

THE best gig venue on the planet in my humble opinion. Doesn't matter who you see, what you do - the atmosphere is always amazing.

There’s a few seats upstairs at the back but you can’t see the stage from them, aside from that there isn’t. I think if someone is disabled you can phone ahead and they might put a seat at the front upstairs.

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!
