Moondance Bar Rochester

Moondance Cocktail Bar & Live Music Venue

Perfectly situated opposite Rochester’s Norman Castle & Cathedral, Moondance Bar brings a touch of the roaring 20’s into our beautifully historic town. With bars on all three floors as well as our courtyard bar there really is something for everyone, from a quiet drink in our lounge bar to private events and catering.

PLEASE NOTE: We have a smart dress code on Friday and Saturday from 8pm 

(No trainers, tracksuits or vests)

Evening good people of Rochester and beyond!
We have extremely limited availability for brunches for the next 3 weeks so please do make sure you don’t leave it to the last minute. Sundays are a little more free than Saturdays so get yourselves along to enjoy some gorgeous homemade pizza, tantalising tacos and brilliant burgers alongside that beautiful boooooze 🥂

I don’t understand why people are panicking. If you don’t want to download the app, just go to the place and write down your details People will find things to moan about 🙄

I have downloaded but they said on the BBC this morning if you can’t download the app places will still take details the way they currently do. At no time did they say it was compulsory if you wanted to go places. You’re going to lose customers ☹️ x also the app doesn’t work on all phones, especially older ones.

We will try as long as we can to use the older system of logging details for track and trace, however it has been advised by the government to try and enforce the use of this app for a more convenient way of checking people in. We of course do not want to deter people from visiting us so as mentioned will try and maintain the older system for as long as we can so everyone can come and enjoy the live music.

If someone has bought tickets and dont have this or it doesnt work then will you refund money for tickets?

To be clear, are you saying that if you don’t download the government track and trace app, you can’t come?

my phone doesn't work on QR codes? What am I to do? All this technology is going to put older people off going out at all 🥺

They can't make you download it ?

The government can stick it's ludicrous track and trace where the sun don't shine.

not every one has a mobile phone xx

I'm not going to download the app because I work in healthcare. It is the very nature of my job that I could be dealing with Covid. I have tests every week.

The events industry is on its knees and we at Moondance will be ‘Lighting it red’ in support of our events family across the country.
Our music events will be moved to an early slot and will continue to support our musicians and fight to keep our industry alive all the time it is safe and legal to do so.
Please help us do this by adhering to the social distancing and Covid safety precautions we have put in place whenever you visit us.
We want you to have fun and we want to continue to keep you entertainment but we must all work together to make this happen!
