A Norwich nightclub will stay open, safeguarding 31 jobs, after the firm that owns it went into administration.

It has been confirmed that Bar & Beyond in the city, owned by the country's biggest nightclub firm Rekom UK, will remain.

Rekom UK recently drafted in administrators as part of a major restructuring, amid pressure from the cost of living crisis and surges in the costs of energy and goods.

The Prince of Wales Road venue opened its doors at the former Chicago's site in February 2017.

“The restructure puts the national business on a stronger footing and allows the UK team to focus on key growth opportunities.

"Bar & Beyond Norwich will form part of this strategy as we look to develop our businesses in key locations and expand our cluster offering.”

Meanwhile, 17 of Rekom UK's sites have closed with immediate effect, including the Bar & Beyond branch in King's Lynn.
