    Alternative pub in Reading would be the rising sun, on forbury road, i'd say..
    and a group of us (Reading locals though) hang out in the forbury and the abbey ruins (except for at the moment, because they're "renovating" it..) and the graveyard next to the forbury on Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Saturday evenings... we're all between 15 and 20ish, and friendly, and there can be between 10 and 100 of us, lol.. it's good though..Reading has a very good alternative "scene", but it's hidden away

    what about alternative places? that play indie and rock etc. i heard of the "purple turtle" pub/club but of nothing else...anyone know anything?

    oh do they get many good bands at reading? or is it a case of going to london to see some?
    The Purple Turtle is about the most alternative place to go in Reading...usually they play rock/indie upstairs and downstairs differs in the week (I think wednesday is rock night, sunday night is drum 'n' bass etc). They usually have happy hour before 9 most nights. The Fez on a monday is really good as well for rock/indie music. And also Po Na Na's - I've never been to the Reading one on student night, but the one in Norwich is the best student night for that kind of music (its called Fat Poppadaddy's student night or something).

    The Fez Club > *

    My general monday night ( yes, monday ), is a couple of pints at either the Hobgoblin, or the Hop Leaf, then off to the Purple turtle for some pinball and meeting with the mates who don't mind drinking lager, then to the Fez for some bouncy bouncy fun \o/

    If you are a chav, then there are lots of horrible nightclubs too. Enjoy
