The Bowery District, Reading's newest venue!

Situated on Friar Street, the venue has gone from strength to strength! Some of you may remember us as old school Bar Risa, with Jongleurs upstairs. The more recent of you as Rewind, a 70's 80's & 90's a haven to Stag & Hen Partys, with Jongleurs (back after popular demand!) comedy club selling out fantastic shows every weekend, and finally Sub89, bringing you the biggest live acts and club nights.

You guys flock to us every Saturday in your masses, creating the best big night out in Reading over two floors every weekend! We decided it was only fair to treat you, as you guys are the reason we are still the first choice for nights out, so on September 15th 2013, Rewind closed its doors for the last time. In came the builders and redecorators, and only 5 days later, we created The Bowery District.

A luxurious new venue bringing an unbeatable atmosphere, mouth-watering cocktails and the friendliest of service. Open every Friday and Saturday from 5pm, with 50% off all drinks in our 5pm-10pm Club! (7pm on Saturdays) Pop down after work today, plonk yourself down on one of our buttery soft leather armchairs, browse our incredible new cocktail menu and let our lovely members of staff look after you, because you deserve it.
