The owners of Snobs nightclub in Birmingham have revealed they explored "all possible avenues" to stay in their current spot before deciding to move.
In a statement on the club's Facebook page, they said:
With the building that has been our home for 41 years becoming a hotel we explored all possible avenues to stay, including the idea of soundproofing!
In the end we have decided that a relocation is the best possible way to secure the future of Snobs.
We have worked closely with the developers to try and find a way around this, but when it became apparent that this would not be possible they were also brilliant in helping us to find a new home and we would like to thank them for their assistance.
The doors of its current home in Suffolk Street Queensway will close in April and the club will re-open in the former Vudu club, on the corner of Smallbrook Queensway and Hurst Street.
