Really cool place since the refurb a while back. More of a late night destination for me, and drink quality limited, but iconic place in Reading and I hope it remains so....

Great bar, with 3 separate areas making it great for whatever you're In to. Can easily spend a whole evening here.

I really enjoyed visiting this club as part of my brothers stag. It was very busy and crowded but the music being played was great! The club is on multiple levels with large elevated outside areas with a huge screen for entertainment. I would definitely go again.
