As Fives prepares to reopen once again as a cocktail bar and lounge we’ve taken a look inside.Advertisement
Edgar Wallace, who has sold the building to Simon Rigby, has kept it pretty much as it was.
So for those who were out on the town from 2007 onwards these interiors will look very familiar.
While the Cocktail Factory in the basement became the Face restaurant the first floor and other floors became the Vintage and Priory club.
It included the Penthouse in the top floor with its small private bar.
Multi-millionaire Rigby said he was in advanced discussions with a London-based group who would operate Fives once it reopens.
Prestonians have already been sharing their memories of Fives and its other reincarnations.

Graham Robinson said: “I worked on the building converting it from a casino to Fives for well over a year.”
Mandy Taylor is pining for Cocktail Factory, she said: “I loved cocktail factory was sad to see it close.”
There was praise for Mr Rigby for stepping in to buy the building.
Helen Melia said: “Simon Rigby deserves a huge thank you from Preston for all he does. Top man.”
Gary Mitchell was a little cynical. He said: “Great news, just hope it happens. Heard this before.”
