A Spitalfields property that started life as a public toilet is now on sale for £1million.

Estate agents Clarke and Lloyds describe the 600sq ft venue on Commercial Street as a “unique restaurant/bar” which is “charming and quirky.”

The former public convenience was converted into an underground nightclub by its previous owners - with room for just 60 people.

However, the club, called Public Life, was closed down in 2012 when Tower Hamlets Council revoked its licence.

It was raided the previous December and police arrested 13 people for suspected drugs offences after a number of substances were found.

The club will sit in front of Grade I-listed Christ Church and opposite Spitalifields Market.
