it should be re-opened but with a drastic change in the way that the place is run, it wouldn't have been closed in the first place with out good reason. it was a drain on police resorces.
i would never go there myself as i don't like the music and there are some rather unsavoury characters who inhabit the place (some, not everyone who goes there). and if it stays closed the troublesome element is just going to find somewhere else to go.

I do agree with you there was a mix of people who went to niche, but you could potentially get that anywhere you go? And yes people who went to niche are now going to other places (for example limit nightclub) so it isnt really stopping the main problem. But I dont think niche was a drain on police resourses, they took it way out of hand and niche has improved in the past six months under the new crack house laws and tightened down as much as you could.
But for 300 police officers some of them armed to raid the club! it really wasnt necessary, to add insult to injury we were held up outside the club in the freezing cold for 2.30 hours, waiting to be searched!its disgusting behaviour
Not everyone who goes there takes drugs or whatever people like to think, just like everything else in this world

I can't personally comment, I've never been but have often seen the clientele when driving past.

Have friends that used to go and told me what went of in there.

15-01-2006, 20:44
yeah i know what you mean, just was a great atmosphere and brilliant sets. Personally I couldn't be any further from the stereotypical person you would think went there! i'm actually a student from outside sheffield and from a middle class background. but it was ok for me, had no problems

Each to their own taste, personally its not my kinda club but then again I'm an old man now :hihi:

One pet hate though, when people refer to certain songs as 'Niche Music' :|

15-01-2006, 21:25
yeah me to! cant stand it. Its like, niche is a club love not a music genre!

cheekychappy
15-01-2006, 21:36
Do the owners want to reopen it?
if theres a big sale sign outside it looks as though they are fed up with the place, also the owners seem to have taken control of the limit club, which is where all the regular niche crew now attend. so in a way niche has moved to limit.

lozxxx
15-01-2006, 21:38
well yeah they do want to reopen but to be honest it wont reopen I dont think! but wish it would. yeah limit is being a replacement, but its NOTHING like niche, dont get me wrong is great and good music but not the same atmosphere etc

lozxxx
15-01-2006, 21:39
ps I am regular niche goer

cheekychappy
15-01-2006, 21:42
yeah i dont think any venue would be able to re-capture the niche environment, and a reason i feel that there is trouble in limit is because its all on one floor, with niche you could move around, have a changed of environment and see different faces at your own choosing, but with limit everyone is together and also it is very light in there. i hope niche does reopen, even though i only went a few times it was an ok place

16-01-2006, 08:15
well to say u r a usual at niche u will no that hey had to go through the coutrs and have not decided to mu knowlage that it has cloesde of course the djs want niche to satay open it isnt fair on people if it doesnt reopen they will be no more speedgarage music anymore and whoever buys it well good luck to them as they will not last therer i say no to niche closeing down and yes to it opening again and i think the public will agree with me on this one thankyou

16-01-2006, 09:54
hey, i absolutely loved niche. only went twice before it was shut down (because of its reputation no-one would go with me!) but it was by far the best club i've been to in sheffield. the amount of out of towners who travel to sheffield just to go there says it all really. i think the people who don't like it are the golden oldies who feel threatened by a large crowd of young party goers anyway! BRING BACK NICHE!!!! :clap: :thumbsup:

Its not the first time Niche has had a for sale sign up. It had one up for months about a year ago. And it still continued to carry on. Hopefully it will open back up and be exactly the same as it was before the closing.

i used to go to niche all the time it was an ok place but i totally understand it shutting down, i stopped going coz everytime i went something ended up kicking off. either inside or on the way home gets a bit tiresome when you just want a good night out(maybe it was the company i kept). your right tho it did have a good atmosphere. i think at lot of the clubs in sheffield have gone down hill over the past few years as it is.

lozxxx
16-01-2006, 11:08
yeah a lot of the clubs have gone downhill. Hopefully niche will reopen as you say it has had a for sle sign already, think its just a matter of time!

Hmm.....you suddenly changed your style!

Have you not considered that making threats of this kind might just give a night club a bad name? I mean, who wants customers who are prepared to dish it out like you are inferring?

A great education and ability to write has nothing to do with spyro's observation. He was passing an observation on your style of writing, and probably your reference to "niche heads". Seems to me spyro had a valid point.

Note: As I am a member of the Licensing Board, and have now contributed to this debate, should any future application from niche need to be heard by the Licensing Board, I shall exclude myself from the hearing.

Hang on let me have a go at this:

I'm not threatening anyone. I was explaining that he was putting my comments on the forum down, even though we have never met. If I happened to come across him in Niche he wouldn't put me down because he wouldn't recognise me as I am so uninteresting and samey he wouldn't recognise me in a crowd.

I go to niche with my chums to just have some fun. I do feel sorry for those of you who choose to judge me

I think thats what he was saying. :D

lado. Thsi is your threat.

I've nothing against how you type as i tend to understand it. But the threat you have posted reflects badly on Niche.

I know of many who state they wont go to Niche due to trouble which regulars of Niche state does not happen. But then we read your threat to Spyro!

I would say that you were trolling but never mind.


Many of our forum friends are aware that I am neither bald or fat.
Last time I checked I wasn't ugly or married and if I had a wife the man in my life would be very concerned. As he would be if he discovered a penis. :o

But back to the OT, I do think niche has had its day and clubbers have found somewhere else to go now.

Final comment on the subject as Im bored now:

Quotes to encourage us all to support the re opening of the club:

From our friend Lado

"Niche killed it!
I was der when it was raided man. da scum treated us like animals, felt even worse fo all da ho's there innit!"

"fa all the peeps that voted no in da poll, who has actually been??
bet all you fools are to scared to go because of its rep!
niche heads need to unite and get my home open again!"

Threats at Spyro :o
"why you dissin me fool?If your a niche head then you know the clientel that go there.why pretend they dont? So wot if i dont have a great education and cant write as well as you can. my opinion is as valid! Id like to see you act all superiour if we ever bump into each other "

"Why u all tryin to play me?

"dont you now how to talk or summit?

"and you were sayin

"ref if ya read my response you wud see i wasnt threatnin noone! as for fox if i knew what trolling was id care. nah i still wouldnt! so ur a woman den. u need to get laid innit."

Lets not forget Sunshine has a hot date lined up!

"that sunflowers is damm fine! think i will be taking her out soon innit. That muppet at the top looks like a batty, is dat board for gays too?"

Im sure she will be thrilled. :|

Do any of the "Niche heads" posting on SF think that if they start enough threads and polls and babble incessantly like children trying to get their parents or teachers to change their mind just to get some peace and quiet eventually the police and the courts and the council will give up and allow Niche to reopen? If you do think that you're in for a big disappointment because the real world where grown-ups live doesn't work like that. In the real world what you or I or most other people think about Niche or drugs or anything else doesn't matter and no amount of whining in txt-spk or posturing by plastic gangsters who have listened to some gangsta rap albums will make the slightest difference.

I went to Niche every weekend for a year and whilst I loved it more than any other club I have ever been too I just knew that some day they'd close it and to be fair they'd have good reason.

For the most part the drug scene was just a load of people getting loved up and dancing for 8 hours straight not bothering anyone. Unfortunately with drugs comes drug dealers.

They're not all terrible people but the FACT is that there were enough bad ones to give it the reputation it had/has.

I'm afraid that it attracted too many bad people doing bad things. They were in the minority but it only takes one bad apple.

We've loads of good memories but I think its is up.

Im not going to argue with Lado. If he wants to approach me if he sees me then so be it. There are plenty of photos of me on here if he wants to search.

Theres no point coming on a forum acting like your 'the man'.

Lado is just reinforcing the stereotype of Niche, and I for one am starting to think that maybe the stereotype is right going by some of the posters who go to Niche. And this is coming from a 'niche head'.

Ermm...

That wasn't in Niche, it was in a club called CJs about 15 years ago. CJs could never lose its licence, because it didn't have one. I'm sure nothing like that ever happened at Niche, depraved though it may have been.

the police don't spend all that money on a whim,
i reckon someone tipped them off on the inside that the police were doina a raid and it's just unfortunate that they didn't get what they went for, sadly.
and glady they shut it down.

Good job too as the saying goes it's better to bow out gracefully when your at the top and leave on a high.

Which is what I suppose most of the punters did every time they left the place.
