The Rainbow Pub holds many fond memories for thousands of Brummies. Meeting friends, watching gigs, dancing until the early hours, falling in love. All the things that happen in a proper pub.

The pub has hosted live performances from many well known artists over the years such as The Heavy, La Roux, Bastille and UB40. It has also been host to countless club nights featuring the likes of Cause & Affect, Bicep and Joy Orbison.

After being closed for 4 years, the iconic spot has been given a new lease of life through careful restoration. The Rainbow boasts an expansive program of live music, club nights, live sports, cocktails and a humane menu from BA-HA. A dynamic yet timeless venue, there is truly something for everyone.

Part of Birmingham’s history

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.

It’s been a long time. But now, the time has come to breathe life back into the legendary pub once more.

The Rainbow Pub has been lovingly restored, and it’s ready to take centre stage once more at the heart of Digbeth nightlife.
