Global Cafe is one of Reading’s most exciting and unique independent cafe-bars. We sell a wide range of locally sourced, fair trade and organic beers, wines, spirits, coffees and teas. Genuine Ethiopian cuisine is served thanks to Tutu's Ethiopian Table.
On evenings and weekends we host a eclectic selection of music and performances from all around the world. We regularly put on local bands and DJs, anything from folk and psychedelic rock to electronica and drum n bass.
Los Dos Gringos & Uno Argentino We are two wandering Gringos walking a lonely dusty road, weary from the burning sun, clinging to a distant dream that one day we will be accepted as honorary Latinos by strumming our tired, beaten guitars in a Spanishy fashion. 'Los Dos Gringos' are:
Dan Macleod (Rolling Machine) Graham Young (No Connection) + other guest musos.
ReadiRockRevolution: acoustic chill session from 4pm onwards. FREE
With a mix of original songs and standards, The Blue Bears bring a
jazzy blues style to the set and a laid back feel.
Sax, guitar and bass, topped with vocals, and a bit of percussion thrown in, is our
line up, and our music a combination of tastes and sounds.
