Manchester's South nightclub has closed its doors for good after running for 27 years.
The news was announced by Boon on Twitter who wrote: "A message that I never hoped I’d have to post. My night this Saturday at South will be the club’s closing night.

After Boon's post, the King Streer venue posted on social media channels confirming the news — confirming that the "lease had ended", and therefore the nightclub would have to close down.
The club's managing director, Aaron Mellor, spoke to Manchester Evening News about the closure: "During the last few years more and more residential apartments have surrounded us on South King Street, which led to Noise Abatement notices and adaptation after adaptation to try and box out the sound issues.
"Most recently the demolition and redevelopment of the former Pizza Express building into a hotel has closed off our adjacent street moving our smoking area back onto South King Street, returning more noise issues from the residents overlooking that street. We've become landlocked by residential development."
He also confirmed that all staff, club nights and promoters would be moved to Deaf Institute, Gorilla and Factory venues.
The club was opened by former Haçienda promoter Paul Cons in December 1995. It was a popular nightspot for underground and independent music fans from 1995 to the present day.
Recent guests at the club include Interplanetary Criminal, Y U QT and Elliot Adamson.
The final farewell party was a sold-out event where emotional ravers made their tributes to the iconic venue.
Clint Boon posted a photograph taken from the closing party. It was captioned- "One of the greatest nights of my life. Thank you @South_Club and all who ever worked or partied there. What an incredible journey! All my love."

The best night at the best nightclub. Pure euphoria. So much love.— Natalie Rees (@definataliemayb) June 5, 2022
As someone who is so passionate about the history of Manchester, I’ve always felt a bit left out when it came to Hacienda nostalgia. It’s mythical and amazing but it’s not mine. South Nightclub is.
