As well as hosting The Cheeky Girls, there are lots of other exciting things going on at Rain bar. These include an open talent competition on Sunday (26th), themed nights plus karaoke on the 1st and last Friday of each month.

Rain bar has recently celebrated its 1st year anniversary, after opening shortly after the initial lockdown last year. Despite the tough challenges facing all hospitality businesses due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the bar is going from strength to strength. Rain prides itself on being an inclusive venue for all, and is a firm favourite across the LGBTQ+ community.
