One of Northern Ireland's most popular night spots is up for sale for £1.75 million.

The El Divino club in Belfast, which has been open for four years, has been put on the commercial property market.

The three-floor venue on the banks of the River Lagan has been a favourite haunt for local celebrities including golfer Rory McIlroy and regularly hosts some of dance music's biggest names.

It has recently undergone a £1 million facelift.

Brian Lavery, managing director of commercial property company CBRE said: "The popularity, stature, size and unique location of El Divino make this one of the most important sales in recent years within Belfast's night-time economy.

"We expect both local and international interest in this property which is well positioned to capitalise on the re-emergence and growth of hospitality and visitors to Belfast, both from within Northern Ireland and beyond."

El Divino was built in Ibiza's Old Town in 1992 and was initially exclusively for a select clientele including A list celebrities like Kylie Minogue and Madonna. It later threw open its doors to the general public.

The Belfast club has a capacity of more than 1,000 and opened amid much fanfare in 2011 -- as Belfast hosted the MTV European Music Awards.
