Iconic Birmingham pub reborn

Iconic Birmingham pub The Rainbow has officially re-opened after a major renovation.

The original Rainbow pub dates back to 1767 and over the last 250 years there have been many incarnations.

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, while on weekdays there will be performances from touring UK bands.

BA-HA will be running the street food menu.
