Shortly after, it became the ‘Embassy’ and ‘Revive’ nightclub, but has been empty for several years.

According to the agents, the main building has had plans put in place but not yet submitted to be developed into a bar, restaurant and club complex as well as a private medical centre.

They added: “The scope this building offers is huge, (subject to planning) it could be an apartment complex, student accommodation, hotel, office space and much, much more.”
