THE ATTIC nightclub in Ipswich has closed its doors for the final time.
The venue was a popular nightspot throughout the 90s and catered for clubbers interested in drum and base and hip-hop music.
The club in St Helen's Street is believed to have had its farewell party shortly after Christmas.
The Attic together with a number of surrounding properties, including S&I Hair and Beauty saloon and Orchard Street car park will be demolished and replaced with residential housing.
Ipswich Borough Council has received a planning application from The Fairfield Partnership, based in Stevenage, for 24 town houses and ten flats. The council has agreed the application in principle, conditions outstanding.
