Until recently this place was best known as One Central Street, but has recently reverted back to the Number 1 Club title as a gay club. This old basement venue was a discotheque in the 1980s, then a gay-only club in the late '80s and '90s. It sits beneath a Grade II listed building behind the Town Hall, and despite its central location, is a bit of an unknown venue and perhaps might have wider appeal as a normal bar in this pub-free part of town.

The original Number 1 Club was run by Geoff Stringfellow , brother the legendary Peter. Both Stringfellows had previously been involved at the Millionaire Club.
