The Rainbow has a proud history: "Legendary Rainbow Restaurant opened its doors in December 1981, going against all norms and a few laws of the pervading Apartheid regime, it set out to serve food and drink to non-Whites in what was an area zoned for Whites under in the infamous Group Areas Act.

“On receiving a full liquor licence in 1983, regular Sunday afternoon concerts were introduced, featuring the cream of internal musicians using their voices against the injustices of the time. These concerts were also used to speak out against these injustices to multiracial audiences gathering in defiance of the laws of the time. So began and still continues a tradition of life altering concerts.”  which look to finally be restarting in June 2022."
