Established in 1972 at the Old Dreadnought Hotel the Rock Disco became a Legend in its’ own right for a great night out and still remains the case 50 years on.
Since those early 70’s the mix of good rock music, the people and good company have made and still make for many a good night at the Dreadnought. The infancy of disco was adapted to play only Rock tracks round the back of the Hotel and the rest is history as they would say.
From those early days in the function room at the Dreadnought Hotel it has slowly evolved over the decades with new audiences, new Rock tunes, new technology and a new two level venue
Many will have their favourite times at the Old Hotel, no doubt about that but due to factors out with everyone’s control in 2006 few options were left for the Rock Crew when Swallow Hotels went into administration taking the legendary Rock Club with it….well nearly. Sadly falling into decay since we had no option to leave and despite everyone’s fondness of the old place realistically it’s never coming back and like it or not King Street is our new home of Rock which is still run and operated by the same team for all those decades.
We now have a more distinctive and unique Rock Club than ever before with the Spirit of the Dreadnought from the last 50 years still present, very much alive and still rocking on TWO new levels every weekend.
Our regular Rock nights are still known all over Scotland and although we have had to move from our spiritual home the Dreadnought continues on in its very own customised premises on King Street Bathgate EVERY Friday and Saturday Night.
Live music on our live level coupled to the Nightclub makes it the place to come if you love your Live Music and a great night out despite all the covid pandemic could throw at us.
Still playing the best anthem tunes from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s 00’s right upto date in a safe and relaxed atmosphere on the two levels.
Oh and Contrary to most stories you may hear there’s not a lot of hairy leather clad bikers head banging all night long. Just some great people who enjoy their music, have a bit fun and a great night out at a Live session or in the Nightclub.
With your continued support, hard work from all the Rock Crew and you guys that keep coming back again and again we HAVE hit 50 years, which maintains us as the longest running rock club in Scotland – possibly even the world.
