The building was originally a Majestic Cinema at its inception in 1922, 1969 saw the transformation to Majestic Bingo, until finally Majestyk nightclub was born in 1993,

Though the external grandeur of the building remained, Majestyk ushered in a period of cheesy dance club nights. The Majestyk was once one of Leeds most popular and largest nightclubs, with a 3,310 capacity. Its eventual dwindling popularity and increasing competition lead to its closure in June 2006.

In 2008 the buildings owners submitted a gaming application to Leeds City Council, with the intention of developing the building into a big Vegas style super-casino but this application was rejected, as was the secondary verdict appeal in 2010.

The grade II-listed city centre building is now the subject of three planning applications by Leeds developer now Rushbond. The plans to revive the building include a live music venue in the basement, a cinema, restaurants and a gym.​











Jumpin' Jacks bar downstairs the coloured lights and chandelier lights down there were still connected and worked.​
