Rock Star University (House of Rock) in Santa Rosa, CA serves up a truly top notch club experience that hosts a ton of favorite hard rock bands. Their service, security, and environment are geared to make the patron feel they’ve stepped into a rock star’s home studio, complete with authentic rock memorabilia. Rock Star University is like an off-site museum with signed photography, instruments, you name it!

I have been shooting concerts since 1974 and this is the coolest place I have EVER seen. The stage, the sound, the lighting, the amazing memorabilia. It has to be seen…

-Pat Johnson - Pat Johnson Studios



It was our first time at this impressive venue that features a jaw dropping memorabilia collection, spectacular state of the art sound and stage system, full lighting and effects, comfortable seating to include sofa lounges, bar benches, bistro bar tables or if you prefer, general admission standing right in front of the stage. The stage features a catwalk that ensures everyone in the venue is getting the best view at all.

The best venue I have ever played. Everything you ask for is there! Two big screens and Marshall stack on the stage are impressive! Green room is like Hard Rock Café! Many famous rock stars’ guitars and sticks are displayed. Sound is amazing! The camera man was doing an excellent job! Their staff and security people are very kind. We would love to play there again. Thank you so much for having us, Rock Star University House of Rock!

WOW! To say I was blown away by the Rock Star University House Of Rock last night is an understatement. What a super fun night at one of the most exceptional venues I’ve played! The stage, sound, lights, room….every single thing was AMAZEBALLS. And not just the house sound, but stage sound as well – a rarity in venues! Perfect mix! Many thanks to the outstanding staff of House of Rock for a truly unforgettable experience. There are rare venues that are as amazing for the musicians as for the fans – thank you for standing out in front of the rest!

Great Venue. Super organized, plenty of staff and safety measures. I really feel the owners have crossed their T’s and dotted their i’s for sure.

Class act!! Amazing venue, amazing staff! The sound, lights, and stage are excellent. The environment is clean, safe, new, and totally comfortable for people of all ages. After thousands of shows it’s my favorite venue.

-Kenny N

We traveled from the foothills of Sacramento to see Slaughter! First time at this venue and I was extremely impressed. Clean, tons of security and friendly staff. Even a bathroom attendant. The lobby is filled with guitar memorabilia to set the mood. We had a pub table which was convenient for breaks and a place to set our drinks. We were still able to walk the venue and hang at the stage. I love the small venues! Mark Slaughter even came out after the show and signed autographs. I highly recommend this venue for rock shows!

-Kelley B

Last night was my first time there, went and saw Slaughter and Vain! What an amazing place!!!!! We had a reserved table and that was Great to have a place to sit down and put your beer, but when we decided to go up and stand near the stage that was awesome too because there was tons of room to move around… this place is great! Love that something like this is finally in Santa Rosa !!!! Will definitely be going again !!!

-Rachal M

This place was awesome. Went to see Vain & Slaughter there last night. Damn what a show. This place reminds me of the Warfield or the Stone from back in the day but much cleaner and better security. Was able to bring my wife on a date she never listened to either of them before & she had an amazing time calling it epic. Definitely will be going back. Was nice not to have to travel an hour or more to get home. Really felt like we were part of the show. An awesome Rock n Roll experience. Looking forward to seeing some bands I still listen to today but never got to see back in the day. We will be returning. Thanks!!

-Patrick W

Place was very clean. Staff was super friendly. Loved that there was assigned seating and plenty of room to move around. You could see the band up close and personal. Loved it! Will definitely go back again!

-Petra P

I’ve been to dozens of venues over the years and I do believe this is the 1st place I couldn’t find anything not to like. The security team was extremely professional in duty/appearance and had the place well covered. Parking was free and 101 a few blocks away. Definitely worth the drive.

-Mike M

What an awesome venue for shows! Clean, sound is phenomenal, and the staff was great. I hope this place can bring in the music acts and the fans. If you see a band on their calendar, don’t miss out. You’ll be sorry if you don’t!

-Shelby P

Awesome venue! The stage, the lights, the effects and the seats.

-Sherrie O

I loved the venue. It is an intimate setting, great sound, not too loud, elevated stage, great four person tables to watch the show from if you wanted the upgrade from general admission standing room only.

-Kristy O

-Sue Y

An amazing venue stage & sound system & staff very cool!
