The Loft is a nightclub currently owned by Grace Black. It was established in 2000 by Lewis Richardson and Rory Finnigan. The club has had several owners since then, and has been the location of several large events, such as when Clare Devine was pushed over the balcony by an initially unknown assailant (later revealed to be Justin Burton) in 2007. Grace Black was also accidentally pushed over the balcony by Freddie Roscoe in November 2014.

The nightclub has also been burnt down twice; in 2004 by then-owner Scott Anderson, who was assumed dead but later revealed to be alive, and in 2009 by Clare Devine, in which Warren Fox was also believed to be dead and was also revealed to be alive. The club was also nearby burned down in September 2001 by Lewis, who planned to set alight the place for the insurance money. However, he was interrupted by Anna Green, who believed she was miscarrying in the bathrooms.

In October 2013, Clare planned to detonate a bomb inside The Loft, but it was unintentionally moved to 28a Fern Street without Clare's knowledge, who detonated the bomb. In September 2019, Jonny Baxter planned to detonate a bomb inside The Loft in a racist terrorist attack during Sinead Shelby and Sami Maalik's engagement party, but the bomb ended up falling off the table and detonating in the backyard of 65 Christleton Terrace.

In 2002, at least two of Toby Mills's murder victims were found by The Loft. In 2011, Heidi Costello was murdered by her father, Silas Blissett, outside the club, mistaking Heidi for Lynsey Nolan.
