    The Playlist Live is a bar on Friar Street in Reading. First time here for me so a first impression review only. Door staff friendly and Aaron promoting was a nice touch a lot of charisma there (good talking with you 😁). Inside the decor and lighting is dark theme with a raised stage mid way down. And live music. Nice. I enjoyed it though on the night it didn’t have that spark - what I mean is I think we caught it on a quiet night and the atmosphere lacked a bit of energy. I’m gonna try it again as it has promise for sure. Recommended? Yeah give it a go.
