A new club is to open in Sheffield, under the city’s iconic Wicker Arches.
Sheffield Council’s sub-licensing committee gave the go ahead for the venue to operate from 9am to 5am seven days a week.
Spencer Fearn, one of the club’s founders, said he wanted to put his hometown “back on the map in terms of house music”.
The club, which has a capacity of 515, is spread over two floors and also has an outdoor mezzanine.
Arch 9 will operate as a cafe during the day and transform into a club in the evenings.
The opening comes amid an uncertain period for railway arch clubs, many of which have been forced to close. In recent years, Cable, The Arches, The Cockpit and Area have all shuttered.
