Small town club

About us:
Since 2002, The Reading Rooms has been at the forefront of the underground clubscene in Scotland. Housed inside a former public library, with an exposed brick, warehouse-style interior and furnished with original retro decor, The Reading Rooms is home to a tight collective of some of Dundee (and Scotland's) most exciting music promoters who present an eclectic and diverse range of late night party offerings.

With a weekly programme crossing many musical genres including electro, dubstep, reggae, funk and soul, techno to hip hop, rockabilly, dancehall and beyond, it all promises to keep this legendary venue at the forefront of the Scottish underground clubscene. To further enhance your clubbing experience, The Reading Rooms is also home to a top of the range D&B sound system.

This club reminds me of the best little clubs in Japan… and London, we're gonna have some fun tonight.
