Dreadnought Rock in Bathgate

The Dreadnought was first established in 1972 and is home to premium rock band performances every weekend.

Where can I get my rock on in West Lothian?

Live music every weekend performed by a variety of artists - and drinks, food with an atmosphere that oozes rock and roll? Come. Ride on the Dreadnought with us.

The Two Levels at Dreadnoughtrock allow you to enjoy your night to the fullest. In the run-up to the live session on the lower level, you are welcome to enjoy a drink at our well stocked bar at very competitive prices that sometimes match bars in the area that has no entertainment at all. The sharp prices are duplicated at the nightclub level too, and with ongoing specials so you can focus on a great night out at a West Lothians premier rock venue. Live music sessions usually start at 8/21 p.m. (see the gig guide for exact times) and rock through until around 11 p.m.

Access to the upper nightclub level opens EVERY WEEKEND at 10:00 PM and comes to life after the live music at around 11:00 PM below ends until 3:00 AM for the last FIVE decades. When both levels are open and after the live session is over, you can come back down after all the dancing to chat or take a little break. Hopefully see you one weekend for a great night at Dreadnoughtrock.
