A lounge and nightclub in Fairfax City? I thought my friends were kidding. Imagine my surprise when I turned the corner onto Main St. and saw a crowd of people waiting to get into Rain, one of Fairfax’s newer night spots.

Rain is a beautifully decorated, posh venue that, despite its suburban location, lives up to the name “nightclub.” Rain is miles away from the pretentious attitude of the DC clubs of the same caliber, with a staff that is friendly, helpful and polite.

Rain offers a glass-enclosed VIP area with sofas, cocktail servers and even a waterfall. For the non-VIP, there is a large bar that tends to be near-impossible to reach with the dense crowds on weekends.

While Rain is packed on weekends – especially Friday nights – there is plenty of space to accommodate the crowd. The main ballroom has a large dance floor and space to mingle around the bar area.
