Iconic Birmingham pub, The Rainbow, is making a highly-anticipated return this October.

The original Rainbow pub dates back to 1767. Over the last 250 years there have been many incarnations. It’s been bought and sold, loved and left abandoned.

Finally The Rainbow has been restored, and it’s ready to take its rightful place once more at the heart of Digbeth nightlife.

The Rainbow has hosted live performances from countless of well-known artists over the years such as The Heavy, La Roux, Joss Stone, Ocean Colour Scene, Bastille and UB40.

New owners Nick Rendall and Trevean Anderson said: “The Rainbow has been a much-loved pub and holds a real sentimental value to Birmingham. It is only right that the re-opening of this pub continues the legacy and strives to have a broader appeal in order to attract new people. Expect live music, live sports, cocktails and good food.”

On Saturdays, The Rainbow’s house band, Urban Jukebox, will be performing a range of contemporary music. Whilst throughout the weekdays there will be performances from touring UK bands.

The Rainbow will re-launch on 2nd October 2021.
