Simpsons Gin Bar is set to open its doors next month on Sutton Coldfield’s High Street.

The 21-year-old lead singer, who has secured five UK top 10 hits with The Vamps including Can We Dance and Last Night, will take up the post of marketing manager and occasional DJ, according to the Sutton Coldfield Observer.

With a 1920s theme, Simpsons Gin Bar will offer a “speakeasy” vibe with a menu spanning gins, cocktails, other spirits and bottled beers.

The venue is also set to offer live music nights.

The Simpson family’s move into the on-trade follows that of Hollywood actor Bill Murray and his five brothers, who are set to open a second Caddyshack-themed bar in the US.
