Rock And Roll At Rock City Nightclub In Patong Beach Thailand
Rock City opened in 2005 on the beach road in Patong. They quickly established a reputation as a venue for world class live rock music in Patong Beach. For those people that prefer rock and roll as apposed to hip hop and gansta rap, Rock City is the place to go. The live bands do cover tunes from classic and hard rock icons like ACDC, Metallica and Kiss. The location on the beach road closed down in 2008, but the show goes on at the Bangla road location. You can always expect a party atmosphere at Rock City, so if you are looking to have a quiet night out, you have come to wrong place!

THE TRIBUTE BANDS
ACDC - The ACDC tribute band is definitely the main attraction, If you are lucky enough to be in Phuket when they are playing you should certainly make sure you check them out!
They do a tribute to the Bon Scott era, as all avid ACDC fans will know, the best of ACDC is from the Bon Scott era! The first album I ever purchased was an ACDC album and looking back on it I still think it was a good purchase. Watching these guys do Highway To Hell makes me feel like I am front row at an ACDC concert. Check out the video below!
Metallica - The guitar player in this band is not Slash himself, but he might just be the next best thing! He is a legend in the local music scene and is probably the most talented musician playing at Rock City. The band does a great version of Metallica tributes, they really get they house rocking.
Kiss - Yes I know, what you are really dying to know is "does the lead singer have the signature Gene Simmons tongue?" I am sorry to disappoint you but there is only one Gene Simmons. But no need to worry Kiss fans, you can rock and roll all night and party everyday at Rock City!
Bon Jovi - Well the girls will be happy to have a Bon Jovi tribute band, these guys do a great job at keeping the girls happy. We all know how important it is to keep the women happy.
Guns N Roses - For some people Phuket really is paradise city. Perhaps it is fitting with classic Guns N Roses lyrics "Take me down to the Paradise City, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty" Well I can certainly assure you that the girls are pretty, but from what I hear the grass is hit and miss.
Rock City has as a party every Tuesday , Friday and Sunday. The party includes all the booze you can possibly consume between 9pm -11pm.You can imagine that the place livens up after 2 solid hours of pouring free drinks! There are "naughty nurses" force feeding shooters. After 11pm the party really gets going, if you have not yet been to a party at Rock City, this is something you need to do. Just make sure you don't have any plans for the next day!
