Best bars in Reading

Lola Lo - Reading

Featuring a tiki-themed setting complete with hand carved woods, stylish lighting and bamboo features, this bar is an intimate late-night bar, ideally located in the heart of Reading. As well as private booths, the venue features a dance floor and an expansive drinks menu offering cocktails and champagne.

Chez Mal

This is no average hotel bar. Full of lights, cocktails and action, the venue is a vibrant mix of people enjoying creative cocktails concoctions and bubbles by the bucket load. Ultra stylish surroundings with expert mixologists behind the bar, it’s time to put your feet up and admire the bevvy of bubbly beauties, fine wines and incredible cocktails that help MALBAR steal the show from other UK bars.

After Dark

If you love music, then you need to check out Reading’s legendary After Dark Club. Home to Success, the UK’s longest running 80s club night, this venue has been bangin’ out smash hits by Madonna, Duran Duran, Madness and Dexy’s Midnight Runners for decades. And if that wasn’t retro-tastic enough for you, the club also hosts the baggy/Madchester themed Fools Gold, and the broader 90s focused The Word. It’s like the 21st century never happened.
