Went to see the Dillinger Escape Plan. The usual wait to get in, such a slow service if you've bought tickets online and not been able to have them delivered. As a music venue, it's great. But is only comfortable if the gigs are not sold out. Otherwise, you can't breathe or move around the venue.

Great venue,though for a first timer in Nottingham it was a tad difficult to find as its situated in amongst winding streets nearby the city centre. Queued for less than a few minutes to get in,security didn't crack a smile when we handed over our tickets to be inspected but hey you can't have everything I suppose. Navigated main hall... More

Went here to see Taking Back Sunday, the venue is pretty nice and the balcony is open to everyone which is nice. Crowdsurfing isn't tolerated and security were very rough about it despite the fact that I am 5ft and wasn't hurting anyone. A warning is fine but grabbing someone and shouting at them for having a good time isn't.... More

Lost my iPhone at a university student night, after searching the club we found my phone had slipped inbetween a hole in the wall! The staff were so helpful and kind and even called their maintenance team to help. Thanks so much rock city- you're the best!

Been to Rock City a few times, the place is a perfect venue for gigs, small enough to be intimate, big enough to attract the best bands. Highly recommended

I visited this venue for the Billy Talent show last October, and I had understood that the venue has a kind of national reputation for hosting good shows. Apparently not, as our experience informed us. We arrived about fifteen minutes before the band were due onstage, to find that they had already been onstage for five minutes. We ran to... More
