The Rainbow


The Rainbow opened its doors for trade on Thursday 17 December 1981.

It was the first such establishment of its kind in KwaZulu Natal, located in a so called “White” area under the infamous Group Areas Act, to be granted a license to sell food and sorghum beer to Africans; this, after having had to seek permission from all businesses within a 200-meter radius of the proposed site in Stanfield Lane, Pinetown.

After a protracted struggle the founding members, Ben Pretorius and Billy Mthembu, were granted a full liquor license in 1983

Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Children under 12 get in free.
