The Purple Turtle is in the heart of Reading Town Centre. It offers a great atmosphere, a good list of drinks, consistant quirky decor; and music for all tastes. Skint Mondays is of a fond likeness for students and it's opening times make it highly appealing.

Purple turtle is the way to end a night out in Reading. It is always very busy so make sure you get there well before 1am. Great crowd and interior since its been done up. Iconic

Purple Turtle is a brilliant place for a good laugh! The main room has a jukebox so there’s a range of music from different eras. PT hosts really good DnB nights in the basement which is nearby a lovely smoking area and Shisha bar

One of the best nights out in Reading, most nights everyone from all the clubs end up going there for nice drinks and a great atmosphere

This is a lively and fun bar/club to visit. Different genres of music, and can visit any night of the week and have a good time! Monday nights are my fav as it’s cheesy disco music with 2-4-1 cocktails! The smoking area is amazing; decked out with heaters, a giant tv screen, loads of seating, a bar and a shisha bar too!

Purple Turtle is very lively and a fun place to go to any night of the week. My favourite night is Monday’s as they have 2-4-1 cocktails and cheesy disco music downstairs which is fab. The venue decor is amazing and I have a collection of photographs because it’s so cool, and unlike any club I’ve been too before! Always the first place I recommend to anyone visiting Reading, especially because of the amazing (and huge) smoking area decked out with heaters and a shisha bar!

Really cool place with good music. Have a terrace with really good vibes and shisha. They also have an underground with a bar where you can dance and relax. Great vibes, great people, and a great place overall.

Was decent tbf like the atmosphere was decent and drinks prices seemed fair! Only complaint I can give is that the queue for the drinks is long and you sober up by the time you get it

Best way to end a night out, good outside area for socialising and really different atmosphere. Purple turtle always has live performances and a friendly environment for people to interact and get the chance to really talk to people compared to other clubs in reading.

Great atmosphere in the main room playing mainly rock/indie on the weekends, basement area that plays EDM, a large smoking area with table football and outdoor heating, and a shisha bar
