Sandwiched between the Prudential Assurance Building (1922) and The Imperial on St Petersgate is Abbey House. It was built on the site of the Theatre Royal which closed in the late 1950s and was demolished in 1962. Originally the Stockport branch of the Abbey National Building Society (before it became a bank), in the noughties it was a nightclub called "sk One" which closed around 2008/9. Some of the upper storeys have been/are being used as offices.
