The Purple Turtle is an indie, grungy, rock bar. Boys in t-shirts, girls tattooed and in t-shirts share the floor. Beer and spirits are served over the bar at an average price. The décor is dark, grungy and what you would totally expect from an indie, rock bar.

This is a live music spot, and I was lucky to be entertained by a San Francisco rock quartet that tickled my fancy. It was energetic,...more

When i moved to London i was excited to sample the London branch of this bar, see if it had the same 'Cheers goes goth' feel of the Reading bar.

I was left wholeheartedly disappointed, but i guess this was always...more
