The Palace Theatre
The former Palace Theatre as seen on 14th July 2018 from outside the Royal Hotel on Bath Street. The building was designed by John Rust and opened in 1898. It was on the site of an earlier music hall, the People's Palace, which had burned down two years before.

The building has seen much development and varied use over the years. Historic Environment Scotland's listed building information tells us that it was rebuilt in 1929, extended in 1931, converted into a ballroom in 1959 and a nightclub in 1976. The imposing granite facade has been retained throughout its history.

In this image there is a banner announcing its upcoming opening (31st August 2018) as a nightclub called ATIK. The building has previously housed nightclubs called Fusion (1976), Ritzy's, The Palace, The Institute (2003) and Liquid (2012).
