Lola Lo brings a dash of Tiki flair to Reading’s social scene. A student haven offering awesome drink deals and a feel-good playlist, it’s great for a party seven days a week.

Come earlier in the week if you’re keeping an eye on the purse-strings. Shots start from £1, your classic Sex on the Beach and Blue Lagoon type cocktails are just £2.95 and you can get a cocktail sharer from as little as £5.95. DJs play a mix of RnB, indie, chart hits and a cool crowd bust out their best shapes until 3am.

The drink deals continue at the weekend, and the venue is perfect for private hire on Sundays, where the Lola Lo team can welcome groups of any size up to 400.

A large group of ladies attended Lola Lo for a hen night, I had had lots of communication from Lola lo in regards to the night in terms of confirming my booking which was great. On arrival we were met by our hostess and taken to our table, the hostess appeared stressed and as we arrived at the table wanted our drinks order before we had even looked at the menu. she then told me we could only order cocktails to the table till 11pm something I had not been told about upon booking and would have effected whether I made the reservation. Long story short our drinks order was messed up, however on complaining this was sorted out and efficiently dealt with by Lee, he was very apologetic and salvaged the night. Once everyone had a drink (The cocktails take ages to make but are very tasty) we had a great night. the music was brilliant and we danced all night long, there was a great atmosphere in the club and everyone had a really good night. The bride to be was very happy and I would definitely go there again, in a large group I would advise a kitty much easier to pay the bill at the end. visited Lola Lo Reading on 15 Jul 2017

Great music. Whole group had a great night. Only thing that let it down slightly was first order of drinks took a long while to arrive and were not all correct. visited Lola Lo Reading on 15 Jul 2017

It was my birthday so I really needed the night to go well. On arrival the doorstaff that I met were polite and professional, I even got a "happy birthday" from some of them. I felt like I was being treated, I met the manager and promoter, who took us to our table and made sure we had everything we needed. The bar staff were so quick, even if it was a bit busy. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at lolalo. visited Lola Lo Reading on 08 Jul 2017

Need bigger bar or staff as queue times was awful. So bad that we gave up and left to go elsewhere visited Lola Lo Reading on 08 Jul 2017

All 14 of us were rejected at the door because 1 boy was wearing chino shorts (still dressed over all quite smartly). No offence but it's a tiki bar? You give out leis? It's hardly the ritz? I mean I've seen people in there in gym wear before! You lost out on hundreds of pounds that night which we spent in Q. Lola lo was the only establishment on the whole street without a queue I'm not sure you can afford to lose business and customour loyalty over something so silly. visited Lola Lo Reading on 08 Jul 2017

When we arrived we were told that we had to order £350 worth or alcohol before we could even be sat at our table, as i had already paid the deposit to have a table i was unimpressed before i had even walked in the door! I find this sort of information is best informed to any customer before they pay anything as if i hadnt paid we would have turned around and gone elsewhere. Eventually we were let inside (after ordering quite a large bottle of vodka for the table) and shown to our booth. The waitress couldn't have been less interested in our table as we only saw her 2-3 times for the time we were at the club. We had to keep going to the bar to order anything which then got brought to us, one of my friends even followed her to the bar and watched her on her phone before realising that she hadn't got her drink ready. All in all the service was poor and the only saving grace was the DJ who was on point the whole evening. No one came to sort out the table behind us who started fighting and vomitting towards the end of the night, that was our time to leave as it was clear our waitress was not coming back as we had to stand again at the bar to see if we had anything outstanding to pay. visited Lola Lo Reading on 20 May 2017

Cocktails were fantastic and music is always good. I love the vibe but wish there was some more tables inside. We arrived at 10pm and would have liked to have sat down while we enjoyed our drinks. 4 tables were reserved and the remaining 2 tables were taken. visited Lola Lo Reading on 15 Apr 2017

Not great on customer service - I signed up for a guestlist and the club looked ok but you can't see the inside. I asked if I can have a look first to see if it's busy and whether I would like it but I was not allowed so decided to go somewhere else instead where I could see it was busy. visited Lola Lo Reading on 01 Apr 2017

Hi I visited on Saturday for my 30th birthday and unfortunately I was disappointed. The drinks first came out fairly slow and we had to ask for ice and lime a few times. The coke was flat and tasted unusual and they were all warm. We later ordered some cocktails and they also came out warm and we're not made properly. I ordered a double vodka and cranberry and it came out warm with no ice and it didn't taste like it was a double. Three of my friends tasted it and said the same, two friends don't drink and said they couldn't taste the vodka. It seems as though it was watered down or hardly any vodka put in it. My friend who is a mixologist also ordered some cocktails and they were again very poor, warm, not all the alcohol added, no garnish, in the wrong glass and horrible tasting. For a £300 table and £10 for a cocktail I would have expected more. It was very expensive for what we received. visited Lola Lo Reading on 18 Feb 2017

Doorman and manager kicking out innocent people from club just to protect a group of their friends from next table to ours. I let the manager know they was harassing my wife and he done nothing about it all night. It was the worst New Year's night. visited Lola Lo Reading on 31 Dec 2016

Overall good experience. The only two downsides were the music, which wasn't what I would expect ( I was hoping more for, up to date hits from the hits playlists and R&B ). Especially not the Christmas songs in the club .. And the drinks which were promised half price wasn't actually half price in the end which was a bit of a disappointment for my guests. Thank you visited Lola Lo Reading on 16 Dec 2016

Sadly it was very disappointing, when I arrived and showed my email confirmation for guest list and table booking I was told that there was no tables reserved and my party was not on guest list ! We had to queue for 15 mins , was offered no discount on entry as a way of an apology and the bar staff were extremely rude and unhelpful ! We stayed for a grand total of 10 mins . Extremely disappointing Lola's especially when your trying to help your friend celebrate a milestone birthday !!! visited Lola Lo Reading on 22 Oct 2016

Great dance club - reasonably priced drinks as well. Was there on Thursday night - the crowd was great and everybody was having a great time dancing . DJ kept spinning up the latest mixes - and it was enough to keep you on your feet. Definitely recommended for Reading !! Cheers! Jenson visited Lola Lo Reading on 04 Aug 2016
