The site of one of the capital’s most famous superclubs, Home, has been chosen as the ideal location for an enourmous Greggs.

Home closed its doors more than two decades ago in 2001 after allegations that illegal drugs were being sold on-site.  

Opened in September 1999, the Leicester Square club was once a jewel in the crown of London’s beloved nightlife scene. It was part of the Home nightclub chain owned by Big Beats, including the clubs in Sydney and London and the Homelands outdoor festivals.

Resident DJs included Paul Oakenfold – who was also the director of music – Steve Lawler, Tim Sheridan, Paul Barkworth and Dave Haslam. Since the closure, the venue has been used for a number of purposes, including another nightclub known as The Marquee Club, which also closed within 18 months of its opening in 2004. 

“The building at 1, Leicester Square, London that was once the short-lived superclub Home is about to become a huge 1,500 sq ft flagship branch of Greggs,” tweeted author and former Home resident Dave Haslam.
