We haven't been to Rock City for many years - since the late 1980's and I remember it being a very dark, sticky floored place with awful toilets.
We were pleasantly surprised. The basement is an amazing close up stage with a bar and lots of little areas that you can chill in. We saw the support acts here and it was perfect. The sound was excellent. Easy access to the main stage and brilliant view. More close up that I remember giving a good involvement with the band. Staff fab. Drinks good value. Toilets clean. Easy access to other pubs and food outlets. Will be back.

Just returned home from a fantastic evening at Rock City watching one of our favourite bands of all time...Gomez!
The venue is not the smartest we've visited but certainly had the greatest atmosphere and the crowd enjoyed every minute.
We found ourselves stood at the very back under the balcony on a set of two steps which enabled us to have a clear view over everyone's heads to the stage...great position and fantastic venue -small but so much more enjoyable than the huge stadiums where you are so far away from the bands you may as well be at home with only the view on the big screens to remind you where you are!! Great night all round.
