Rainbow House Club may be small… but as I’ve learnt many times throughout my life, it’s not always about size, it’s about how you use it.
What Rainbow House Club lacks in size, it makes up for in personality, uniqueness, inclusivity, great DJ’s, AMAZING shows and is packed to the balcony (they actually have one) with good times.
Rainbow House is on Fitzroy’s famous Smith St, known for its vibrant nightlife. The intimate dance hub is just a few doors down from some other LGBTIQ+ venues like Sircuit, Mollie’s and Yah Yah’s. So, if you’re up for a night of adventure, make like a gay kangaroo and bar hop your way through northsiders’ favourite LGBTIQ+ friendly waterholes.
With a wide variety of people, the vibe at rainbow is very much an inclusive one. It’s a space that makes you feel safe and accepted.
As you make it through the front door, you’re typically greeted with a DJ playing on the decks while people boogie down on the d floor. The space has high ceilings that includes a balcony that overlooks the D floor.
The nibbles on offer are delish and if you’re feeling thirsty, the lovely staff will make sure to quench your thirst. Grab yourself one or five of the amazing drinks they have on offer (I’m not your boss… but drink responsibly). Now that’s what I call tasting the rainbow!
With the outside of the club painted all the colours of the rainbow, it’s hard to miss, and if you can’t find it, you’re probably too drunk. Lemme call you an uber babe x
