The Rum Runner nightclub was opened on Broad Street, Birmingham in the city center in 1964. Originally a casino, by the 70s, the Rum Runner became more of a conventional club.
A real milestone in the history of the Rum Runner was when a newly formed group of musicians called Duran Duran brought in a demo tape. There was an instant mutual appeal between the owners the Berrows Brothers and the band, who offered Duran Duran a place to rehearse while they also worked the club.
