Bunker aims to be smallest club
The club
The club has a capacity for just 39 people, including two bar staff
A pair of bar owners are hoping to have a former air raid shelter declared the world's smallest nightclub.

Sonny Rajput and Reynold Anthony have turned the shelter into Bunker 39, an exclusive private members' club in Bournemouth, Dorset.

With a capacity for just 39 people, including two bar staff and a doorman, the club is only slightly bigger than the average living room.

Guinness World Records will visit after it has been open for three months.

Guidelines set

It says the club, which opened at the beginning of August, must be totally self-contained and separate from the neighbouring DNA club.

Sanjay Verma, manager of Bunker 39, said: "The room is slightly bigger than the average living room.

"The Guinness World Records said it will be the smallest permanent nightclub in the world, it's just a case of they have to come and do their checks."

He said the club has to be trading for three months before it can gain the world record title.

A spokesman for Guinness World Records confirmed the club owners had been in contact and that a set of guidelines were sent out to them showing the evidence needed to set the world record.
