Looking for a sophisticated spot on your next date night? Then head to Vino.Vita., a stylish Italian bar on Valpy Street that specialises in carefully curated wines. Expect rustic wooden interiors and pretty vines creeping across the walls, with plenty of tables where you can enjoy a glass of vino alongside indulgent pasta dishes, hand-stretched pizzas or mouthwatering sharing platters.

Escape Hunt Reading

Escape Hunt is offering a choice of themed hands-on experiences for couples. Opt between a pirates cabin, Viking hall or den in the Wild West and work together over an hour to decipher codes and gain your freedom at this immersive event.

Market House

Looking to impress? Housed inside a former bank, Market House is sure to do the job, touting three different kitchens, bottomless brunches featuring goodies like a crispy smoked bacon bap as well as a bar serving up various cocktails, gins and craft beers. If that wasn't enough, there's also a secret garden to relax in and plenty of fun events like stand-up comedy and drag bingo.

O'NEILL'S Reading

Housed in a former bank, O'Neill's Reading is a two-floor pub perfect for any occasion. With multiple private spaces and a killer lineup of events from band night Fridays to DJ Saturdays, swing by for a quick pint or stay all night - the choice is yours.

Honest Burgers Reading

Located on King Street, Honest Burgers know a thing or two about cooking up a tasty patty and knockout rosemary fries. If you're craving a comfort food fix, this beauty will sort you out a treat with chicken, beef, veggie and vegan bites up for grabs like the Tribute and Pesto burgers as well as plenty of delish sides.


While there might be a bunch of fun and quirky things for couples to do in Reading, there's none like MILK, a lively late-night bar and party spot. Be sure to check out one of their comedy evenings, DJ nights or rum tastings - that is when you're not slurping your way through their cocktail menu.

Thirsty Bear Pizzeria & Bar

Thirsty Bear Pizzeria & Bar is dishing up stylish interiors, craft beers and some of the freshest slices around. Grab a table in the cool dining room or head to the rooftop terrace and pick between a range of 16-inch and 20-inch New York-style doughy bites, from The Tennessee topped with gorgonzola and parmesan to the Hell's Kitchen smothered in caramelised onions and jalapenos.
