A Leeds nightclub has announced plans to open their doors at 00:01 on 21 June as the UK's lockdown restrictions are set to ease.
Mint Warehouse revealed that the event - which is called 'System' - will be their Grand Reopening, posting on Facebook: "System - The Grand Reopening - Round 2 Monday 21st June - 00:01 am start Mint Warehouse."
System, which is the name of the reopening night, also took to social media to tell the Leeds public that there is 'no point messing about' with when it opens.
Their separate post reads: "Not point messing about were opening Sunday midnight! System - The Grand Reopening - Round 2Monday 21st June - 00:01 am start Mint Warehouse Fingers crossed."
Many people have taken to Twitter to applaud the venue, with one writing: "Mint warehouse opening it's doors at 00:01 on the 21st June is another reason why Leeds is the best city in this country."
Another added: "Can't wait to be that older weird ladgen guy at the back of mint warehouse giving it beans come June.

This has come after the UK government set out the roadmap out of lockdown which is broken down into four stages. The final one being no legal limits on social contact, enabling nightclubs to reopen and large events to go ahead.
Naturally, people have been overjoyed with the news that this could all be over by 21 June. So much so that a petition was launched to make the day a national bank holiday - and it's passed 38,000 signatures.
The petition reads: "We'd like the government to create a one off Bank Holiday, to be known as Merriweather Day, on Monday June 21st 2021 as an opportunity for families and friends to come together."
It goes on to state: "Covid-19 has negatively impacted people and families up and down the length of the country in many different ways not least their ability to come together.
"We've seen family celebrations at Eid, amongst others, cancelled and it looks likely Christmas will be the same.
"This proposed bank holiday would help families and friends of all faiths and none to come together to celebrate.
"We've chosen the longest day of the year as it provides for the most opportunities to be outdoors in a Covid-19 safe way."
