A new nightclub is set to open in Reading with two rooms and a rooftop bar.
Gun Street Garden will officially open in Reading town centre with a launch weekend on Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28.
With free entry before 11pm, the new nightclub is based around an “urban garden” theme.
Owner Theo Barber, 25, said: “Reading hasn’t had a new late night venue open for five or six years so it’s fantastic to be opening something which can give people another option.”
He said VIP tables for launch weekend have already sold out – but people can still turn up on the door to take a look around.
“It’s fantastic to have sold out all the VIP tables two weeks before opening and it’s pretty exciting.
“There are various packages when you book a VIP table where you can get bottles of Champagne or vodka.”
Theo, who went to school in Newbury , said the nightclub will boast two rooms for customers to enjoy.
He said: “There is the Garden room which has two bars and a DJ which is set around a garden theme and then there is a Disco Garden where there will be music from the 70s, 80s and 90s where people can dance.
“And then there is a rooftop bar and garden too which also has a bar with it.”
The club, which used to house Sakura and then a nightclub run by Coalition, is set to open its doors for the first time at 9.30pm on Friday, September 27.
Theo, who quit his last job five weeks ago to open the first bar of his own, said: “We’re feeling fantastic and it looks like we’re going to be ready early too, which is great news.
“I’ve been working in bars and nightclubs for a long time now and it’s the first one I’ve opened of my own, so I’m excited and a bit nervous.
“I’ve launched other nightclubs before but it feels a bit different when it’s your own place.”

The decision to split Smash, which is on the ground floor of the building, into two venues was approved by licensing bosses at Reading Borough Council last November .
