Bosses of Birmingham gay venue Glamorous are set to open a new LGBT club in Coventry on the site of former venue Rainbows.

Building on the success of their central Birmingham venue under the same Glamorous brand name, Matthew Eason and Sam Hibbert are looking forward to welcoming revelers on the opening night of Friday 2 March, at 8pm. Glamorous Coventry will undergo a facelift, culminating in the opening  with special guest Kara Van-Park.

The site, on Short Street, has been at the heart of Coventry’s gay community for a number of years. It’s recent closing has been a massive blow for the local gay community. Matthew and Sam, who have been part of the area's gay community for a number of years, are ready to give their time, money and effort to the venue during 2018 and beyond.

Glamorous will be open seven nights a week and is currently licensed until 6am every night. The facelift will involve a fresh feel for the venue which will include the addition of a staging area to the downstairs floor. It is the vision of the venue's new ownership that further investment will be made at a later stage, bringing it even further up to date to appeal to today’s market, whilst still retaining the essence of what the club is to Coventry’s gay community.

Venue owner Sam Hibbert said: “We are pleased to announce that we have taken ownership of what is one of Coventry’s amazing night time entertainment venues. The venue has been open for several years under a different name and Matthew and myself are proud to give it a fresh one for 2018. We are giving it everything it possibly needs to ensure that it stands the test of time and is still here in decades to come.”

Work has already commenced and will finish with Glamorous’ opening event on Friday 2nd March at 8pm with Kara Van-Park. Further information can be found on Glamorous Coventry’s facebook page.
