Caribbean restaurant chain Turtle Bay is to launch a restaurant on Gold Street, Northampton.
The 10,000 sq ft site, formerly Groove Nightclub, has a rent of £60,000 per annum and a new 20-year lease.
The opening date is yet to be announced.
Restaurant agent Restaurant Property was behind the deal for the unit.
Matthew Englender, head of sales at Restaurant Property, said: "Northampton is one of the fastest-growing towns in the UK with a fantastic heritage and increasing student population. There are other more obvious developments within the town, however, we worked closely with local developers to uncover this gem on behalf of Turtle Bay.
"The footfall on Gold Street mirrors some of the busiest locations in London - and Turtle Bay is likely to benefit from the re-location of the University Students' Guild nearby."
Turtle Bay currently has 37 sites in the UK and aims to continue opening eight sites per year.
