Once-thriving pubs, social clubs at the heart of the community and popular shops.
There are a number of well-known buildings up for sale and they could be yours if you have a few hundred thousand pounds spare.
Property agents across the city are advertising a number of premises up for sale which once stood proud as popular venues or busy shops.
We take a look at a few which will be well known to those who live in the area.
135-141 George Street, city centre - £925,000
The former Valbon nightclub can be yours for under £1m.
It was also previously Pozition and before that the Queens Hotel and now has planning for 18 apartments.
Back in January 2018 the owners closed the legendary nightclub, telling Hull Live that conversion work had already started on the flats but any redevelopment seems to have ground to a halt since.
Agent Garness Jones says: “The premises comprise of a detached period building that has historically traded as a nightclub.

“The vendor has recently secured planning permission for conversion into 18 spacious flats with three apartments benefitting from a roof top garden."
The scheme benefits from ten car parking spaces. The vendor has considered the option of extending the number of apartments to 25.
333-335 Beverley Road, Hull - £475,000
Formerly the Mayfair Hotel and The Bevy, this has been a well-known pub with 19 rooms and is now on the market following retirement of the current owners.
Agent Topham Larard says: “Held in the same ownership for 30 years and impending retirement instigates the sale.
“Long established successful hotel with modern public bar and fully licensed function room with a 150 capacity having a separate bar and toilet facilities.
“The hotel provides 19 rooms, fifteen having en-suite facilities plus a commercial kitchen on the first floor with dumb waiter to the ground floor.
“Enclosed licensed external seating areas to the front and rear with a rear car park that can accommodate 15 cars.”
54-56 King Edward Street - £475,000
Now maybe a good time to grab this building if you have a spare half a million to spare.
It is close to the new Albion Square proposed development. Many people may remember this being Burger King and before that Wimpy.
Agent Scotts says: “Any new owner could potentially bring in £35,200 a year from two shops with the majority of rent secured against Cash Converters until October 2026.”
There is also planning permission to convert upper floors to 6 apartments.
204 Chamberlain Road - £450,000
The Meyers was a once-thriving social club at the heart of the community in that area of east Hull.
Many a charity event took place at the venue before its closure in 2015.
The Spar had been lined to take over the building in 2017 but pulled out.
Before Meyers it was originally known as the Silver Moon, but later changed its names to Sully’s when rugby league legend Clive Sullivan ran it.
It was later operated by the Hull Irish Society before becoming O’Sullivans.
The building is situated at a prominent junction with Stoneferry Road and is being advertised by agent nt3.
405-411 Anlaby Road - £355,000
Situated next to Anlaby Road flyover, opposite the KCOM Stadium, the former West Parks Hotel has now been vacant for a number of years.
There is currently a planning application for change of use to four houses of multiple occupation and its days as a hotel or bar look to be over.
Agent Garness Jones says: “Detailed plans have been approved with full planning permission along with detailed plans and survey to show the conversion of the existing building to 17 one bedroom apartments.”
152-154 Hessle Road - £285,000
This grand-looking building is the former Premier Store next to Madeley Street Flyover.
It has a rich history and is a listed building. It was originally created as a shoe company and was built in 1898, described at the time by the builder as the ‘most showy piece of shop building in the town’.
Agent Garness Jones says: “The entire building has been maintained to a standard of great care. The property consists of a period detached retail unit with large display windows that benefit from electric roller shutters internally.
“There is a large open plan retail space with storage to the rear, a large store which is accessed via Coltman Street, which leads to further first floor storage.
“The upper floors to the front of the property consist of storage and living accommodation. There is also a spacious office.
“The property is suitable for reconfiguration and development into multiple units subject to the appropriate planning consent being obtained.”
