Reading, though more known for one of the largest music festivals in England (The Reading Festival), may not necessarily be the best town for a lively nightlife scene. There are, however, a handful of medium-sized to larger night clubs that fall into cocktail lounge and dance club categories.

The After Dark Club

The After Dark Club, located in the southern area of Reading, is a medium-sized dance venue specialising in 60s pop, Indie Britpop and rock, as well as and top 40 hits dance music. They've been an established club since 1992, and currently feature 5 regular parties every week. The cover varies depending on the night, though they're always open 10pm to 2am.

Facebar, in the east of Reading, is actually 2 clubs in one, each one on its own level, both offering a wide variety of different music. The Red Room club is a larger space, more like a traditional large dance club. Blue, the second club is a more intimate area more similar to a pub with a dance floor.
