Welcome to the Rocker

The Rocking Chair Bar, or 'Rocker' to the locals, is an institution in Derry. Located on the edge of both the famous Derry Walls and the fabled Bogside, it has the atmosphere of a local with the energy of a pub in the heart of the city centre. The Rocking Chair Bar serves an excellent pint of Guinness and the Lounge hosts great live music Wednesday to Sunday. The Rocker has been owned by the Duffy family for generations and they have years of experience entertaining customers. Our staff know how to make a visitor welcome. Come in and see us, we're the friendliest Bar in Derry.

The Live Lounge

We have live music from Tuesday to Sunday, 10:30pm till late. There’s an eclectic mix of sounds including pop, dance, rock, folk and Irish traditional. The music on offer spans the generations from way back in the day to right up to now. We have regular weekend drinks promotions in advance of the music, sampling one of our cocktails to start the night is a must. You can find out more about upcoming acts on our Facebook page.

Love of the game

We have large flat screen TVs throughout the building showing all types of sports. Horse racing is very popular in the bar and there is a bookmakers just a few steps away if you fancy a flutter. We show all broadcast soccer matches and there is a great atmosphere for Gaelic football and Ireland rugby matches. In the lounge we have a 10 foot screen with great picture, sit up close and you'll feel like you're at the match. You can enjoy discount prices on beer every day, most welcome during a Sunday afternoon match!
