York Rock Alternatives

Monteys Rock Cafe

A very cool place with some great sounds. This is the perfect venue to bring the girlfriend. You get the rock music, she gets some nice cocktails. Good drinks, good music, good company. Nuff said!

Artful Dodger

Some rock sounds on Tuesdays and most nights if the dj has 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.


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.

Just Plain Cool Alternatives

Evil Eye
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.

Blue Fly
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.

Back to the 60's at this fine eating place.
Pictures and music from the era of love and peace. A great experience man!

Rougier Street
Well .. maybe not so alternative but worth a mention. Get yourself set .. get ready to eat .. and eat as much as you like for a fixed price. Mad if you ask me but good food imo.
