Prestigious arts venue The Arches has been a staple of the Glasgow club scene for years.
Up until recently, club nights included techno and house night Pressure and Colours, which focused on big-room house and electro.
However, the venue has been hit by complaints from Police Scotland relating to drug use.
A lot of tweets pointed out that the not-for-profit arts venue, which also hosts arts festivals, gigs, dance performances, and exhibitions by world-famous artists, won't survive without the income from its club.
Others mocked the decision to close the club over perceived drug misuse.
A handful of people managed to see the funny side.
But the most common reaction was one of shock and anger.
A Change.org petition set up in protest at the decision to close The Arches has so far been signed almost 1,000 times.
