Club Nights


SUCCESS is the U.k.’s longest running 80’s club night and has been attracting large crowds to The AD since November 1992 and now, well into its 25th year ,the popularity of SUCCESS shows no sign of waning. For many people SUCCESS is the ultimate Saturday night out in Reading. Group discounts are available for pre booked groups of 10 or more.


FLUFF is the newest of our regular club nights but fits in well with The After Dark ethos and has quickly become a customer favourite. Musically FLUFF combines the very best in Rock and Independent sounds coupled with selected AD classics from the past 25 years. A firm favourite with customers new and old. FLUFF takes place at The AD on alternate Fridays


This request driven night has been entertaining AD patrons since the mid 1990’s. Primarily featuring classic hits from the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s but you may also hear the odd classic from outside this timeline. Look out for occasional TOTP specials which pay homage to featured artists. Our recent TOTP tribute to Morrissey and The Smiths was very well received. TOP OF THE POPS alternates on Friday nights with FLUFF


Fools Gold was born out of DJ’s Dan and Andy’s passionate love for The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Charlatans and everything associated with that legendary Manchester sound. Attracting capacity crowds since April 1995 these days Dan and Andy dig out the original vinyl three or four times a year for some of the most keenly anticipated nights in the AD calendar. Check out the dedicated Fools Gold website for more details and the date of their next party
