But the club was closed in 2005 following a police raid and its building was finally demolished earlier this year, after it had been empty for more than 10 years.

The club was famed for its garage and drum and bass music.

Social media users have reacted with excitement.

Jodie Newton said: "Nah way is Niche opening back in Sheffield, that's gonna be mad"
