Owner of Castlegate Newark Limited to give new life to the former Atrium at The Castlegate Centre in Newark

A former late-night bar has been turned into four smaller retail units, two to include pilates and pizza.

The former Atrium nightclub, on the ground floor at The Castlegate Centre, on the junction of Castlegate and Lombard Street, Newark, has been closed for over three years.

Tim Hubbard, of Castlegate Newark Limited, is the current owner of the building and is looking to develop it.

The ground floor has been divided into four units, two of which will welcome new businesses including a reformer pilates studio and a pizza takeaway from next month.

The other two units are currently still available to let.

On the first floor of the building, which used to be a Chinese restaurant, Tim is looking to convert it into 10 flats.

The flats are still in the planning stages and the owner is hoping to get them under permitted development.

“The building needed a lot of work done to it, which the older owners weren’t prepared to do it,” he said.

“It needed us to divide it up into smaller spaces, it needed us to spend some money on it and reinvest it to get it all let out, whereas the old owners, I think have just had enough of it.

“I want to see the building full, it is a great building and I want it to be full of people.

“It is a massive part of Newark and the bingo closing disappointed everybody and people say that there is nothing else like the building in Newark and it’s that kind of building with the bowling, that if you lose it you are losing a big part of the community.

“This development will definitely offer something to Newark.”

Perry’s Bingo, which was based at the venue, closed its doors in May this year.
