The nightclub was based in the old North Sea Hotel in Sea Road in the late 1990s - one of several nightspots which were based in the building's ground floor over the years. Others were The Yellow Cab Company and Lix’s.

The old hotel later stood empty and boarded up for 14 years before its demolition. A major new seafront development has since been built on the site, including 23 flats.
