In an abandoned nightclub while eerie images show the dance floor frozen in time with the glitter ball still hanging
Glimpse inside an abandoned nightclub as eerie photos reveal a dance floor frozen in time with a glitter ball still hanging from it.
The refinery’s bars haven’t served a drink in more than 20 years, but the building remains a time capsule.
Its walls still have their bright purple, green and red paint, and much of what the club still had inside from the 1990s.
The Staffordshire Building’s cloakroom is still standing, with empty hangers awaiting revelers.
The old glitter ball still hangs from the ceiling, alongside signs that read “The Refinery” and “Friday Social.”
And the VIP area and its balcony overlooking the dance floor are still furnished with bright red sofas.
There are fridges and mugs that have not contained alcohol since the last drink in 2001.
The building, which is more than 100 years old, remains on the market after failing to sell at auction earlier this month.
Bidding had started at £170,000 although the target price was £200,000.
The sale comes with planning permission to convert the old club into seven apartments with retail space on the ground floor.
There is also approval for a two storey building with a link extension containing three apartments and retail below.
The building has changed hands many times since its days as a nightclub, but remains untouched.
StaffordshireLive took a look inside when it last launched in 2019.
The building was last purchased for £190,000 in February 2020 – just as the Covid-19 pandemic was beginning to spread around the world.
Before becoming a nightclub, it housed the YMCA and was originally built as an auditorium.
It comes after the inside of a spooky abandoned bingo hall that has fallen into disrepair decades after it was revealed to be in its heyday in the 1960s.
The Astoria in Hyde, Greater Manchester had its golden years as a cinema and then bingo hall but has fallen into disrepair since it closed in 2009.
An abandoned townhouse that looked like it was part of the Jumanji set also hit the market recently.
From the outside, the historic apartment looks typical of Victorian sandstone architecture found across the city. But inside is a whole different story.
Readers also got a glimpse of an abandoned factory that had been left to rot for years.
Eerie photos of the inside of the derelict Longport, Staffordshire, factory reveal that it has fallen into disrepair.
