A freshly painted building in Sheffield city centre appears to be the new location for NICHE nightclub, known for playing garage, underground house and bassline music.

The building on Walker Street, off Derek Dooley Way, forms part of the line of businesses under the Wicker Arches.

The former club on Sidney Street, Sheffield, opened in 1992 but the club was closed in 2005 after a police raid.

Before its demolition earlier this year the building had stood empty for over a decade.

A spokesperson from the NICHE Sheffield Official Facebook Page said: "The beast called NICHE is awakening, so watch this space."
