York Rock AlternativesMicklegate
Some rock sounds on Tuesdays and most nights if the dj had his way. Also a late bar open till, well, late 2am usually. Some nice people and some comfy seats at the front. Good art work on the walls too. A bit of a dunmp really but the perfect venue to bring the boyfriend / girlfreind when you want to dump them.
New Street (centre of Town)
A late night venue that has a few nice rock tunes in its repertoire. It is usually very full after dusk. Oh god I cant believe i said that. Nice atmosphere and drinks are reasonably priced.
Unfortuanatly closed 2019/2020. Owner and depressed clientele basically gave up on it. A very cool place with some great sounds in its day. You get the rock music, she gets some nice cocktails. Good drinks,i good music, good company. Nuff said!

Just Plain Cool Alternatives
downstairs opened a few years ago ... went in some chilled sounds on entry .. went to the bar some bartender looks up with a nod asks "You ok dude?" Way removed from the stiffs in the bar down the street .. cool place imo.
Located next to Dusk, this late night venue is open until 230am on most weekends. Small inside the sounds are house and dance music. Live Dj's some nights, although I dont know how they fit them in there sometimes.
