5. Old Rock House
Parking at the Old Rock House can be trickier for music fans who have disabilities. This parking lot, located at South Seventh Street and Hickory, is used for baseball-game parking and by patrons of the venue, but it does not have designated handicapped parking spots. Erica Deiters, promotions coordinator for the Old Rock House, told RFT that nobody has complained to the venue about the lack of handicapped parking.

6. Giovanni's on the Hill
According to city records, a patron of Giovanni's on the Hill filed a complaint with the Citizen's Service Bureau in November 2006. Among other things, the complaint stated that the restaurant's "steps are oversized with no hand rails; [the] citizen was using a cane instead of [a] wheelchair and said it was most difficult getting around." Because there was no construction work in progress at the restaurant, however, the city had no jurisdiction to force the restaurant to make changes. The city closed out the complaint.
