Watch the video of Sheffield's legendary Republic nightclub that has gone viral on YouTube
The Republic was home to the legendary Gatecrasher and this animated video gives you the chance to relive any memories you have of the notorious nightclub.
The 3D animated video takes you on a virtual tour of the nightclub with an incredibly accurate structural representation of the layout of the building. This building was of course the home to the unforgettable Gatecrasher brand.
Amazingly, the nightclub started life as a failure after it wasn’t able to attract the audiences it may have predicted it would.
The club began to turn it’s fortunes around when, in 1996, the Gatecrasher branded night started using the building for Saturday evening events, initially as a few ‘one off’ functions.
Eventually, the building became the permanent home for the Gatecrasher nights following it’s success.
Sadly, on June 18, 2007, the famous building caught fire and partially collapsed.
The once popular structure was then later demolished.
