    This building originally started life around the 1930's as the Palais de Danse, a well known Leicester dance hall. Once known for being quite a classy place, by the 1970's nights there often ended in violence. It was renamed Studio One and had a major refurbishment in 1985, wrecking the original interiors of the building. Since that time it has changed names often, later becoming Life then more recently Sosho. Seems to have closed down late last year, and some stripping appears to have taken place at some point. Visited with jacquesj and had a revisit with Mr Sam :)

    crikey, shows how little I get out these days!! I never knew it had shut! It was Life last time I was in there (which doesn't seem that long ago but was probably 9 years ago now!!) Shows how things always go in circles, was probably the biggest club in leicester 10 years ago!

    It's pretty mad how many times places like this close then reopen! The stash of lost driving licences and bank cards was quite something!
