Images shared on social media show the nightclub at new premises.

Speculation is rife that Sheffield’s bassline club Niche could be re-opening on new premises, following the demolition of the original premises this year.

A picture posted on Facebook by bassline DJ Jamie Duggan shows what appears to be a new home for the club, which has been closed since 2010.

Pictures shared on social media show a roadside billboard advertising the new venture with the caption: “Sheffield, are you ready?”

According to a post on Niche’s official Facebook page from October: “The beast called Niche is awakening, so watch this space.”

Niche was the UK’s bassline hub in the 2000s, but was shut down in November 2005 following a police raid. Owner Steve Baxendale opened it again a year later, but it was closed for good in 2010.
