19 Things You Know if You’ve Been on a Night Out to Reading’s Sakura
Whether it is Hanzo or Skint Monday’s we have all been to Sakura. Your favourite part might be the music, the atmosphere or maybe just the fact you can conveniently get a Subway after but you have to admit you’ve probably had some great nights there.
1. You immediately question your life choices if you get to Sakura and upstairs isn’t open
Are we too early? Is no one coming? And most importantly when is upstairs opening?
2. Even though there are so many bars there is always a long queue at all of them
3. And when you get to the front of the queue you’re always surprised by how expensive the drinks are
Isn’t it supposed to be a student night?
4. You always try to sneak drinks onto the dance floor but it never works
5. So you have down that drink that you paid too much for and queued too long for
6. You love downstairs on Monday’s because it brings out your inner fourteen year old emo
7. You feel personally offended when you’re made to queue to go to the smoking area
8. Because even if you don’t smoke you need to go up there due to the lack of air in the entire club
9. And if you do smoke at least waiting is better than being stuck outside at the back by the bins downstairs
10. You question the choice of whoever designed Sakura and why they wanted to add so many mirrors
11. Because why would anyone want to see themselves sweaty, drunk and dancing?
12. You feel an overwhelming sense of guilt going to the toilet because you’re skint and the toilet attendant is so nice
13. Or you come out with glow stick that you won’t remember how you got in the morning
14. You know their VIP area is the nicest in Reading
15. And if you have VIP you keep going back because you think the bar will have the quickest queue
Even though that isn’t always the case.
16. When you realize it is nearly 2am you know it’s time to round up your squad and head to The Purple Turtle
17. Which is never easy because there are so many places they could be
Upstairs dance floor? Downstairs dance floor? Upstairs bar? Down stairs bar? VIP? Smoking area? Upstairs loos? Downstairs loos?
