Bermuda Bob's Rum Shack on Timber Hill opened last October and caters to a wide range of music events.

On June 28 the venue will host Boiler Room as the promoter embarks on the first ever Boiler Room tour.

A spokesman for Bermuda Bob's said: 'Boiler Room is basically a glimpse through the keyhole into underground music, offering a close up look at DJs and musicians that you don't often get to see.

'They have worked with some of the biggest musicians in the world ranging from Carl Cox, Thom Yorke to Frankie Knuckles and Skepta.'
