A popular retro nightclub in the heart of Ipswich was closed for the final time today.
Staff at Northgate Street-based Groove were told of the decision at a meeting in Milton Keynes today – they said the announcement came as a huge shock.
Assistant manager, Liam Schulen, said: “It is going to be a massive blow to the people that use Groove.
“I think it is going to mean Ipswich is at a massive loss.”
Full details of why the nightspot, part of the Groove chain, has closed have not been released but it is understood the profitability of the venue was a major factor.
