Bar Rumba is a late night club by Leicester Square which shows no restrain when it comes to a fun night out of dancing and drinking in the West End. The commercial music, chart hits, RnB and pop is the engine of this wild and crazy club but the generous happy hours and drinks promotions do their bit to fuel the spirits. There is also a comedy club side to Bar Rumba, especially on Friday and Saturdays.

We came for a cocktail offer but the cocktails didn't taste very good at all. They were really badly made and were served in plastic glasses which just made them look worse. The venue looked very tired and in need of a update and the toilets were tiny. We wouldn't come back - it just wasn't a good experience at... More

Bar Rumba is very casual venue for a low key night out. It's a very small venue with claustrophobic low ceilings and during the week the dance floor is closed off which is annoying. Drinks are very pricey but given the area I guess it's understandable. On my last visit I was served by Joanna who was lovely and did... More

I visited bar rumba for the comedy carnival which was amazing, very good acts. However, we were packed in like sardines and there was no air conditioning during the show which made it very uncomfortable due to the recent hot weather. The seating was worn, dusty and uncomfortable to be sitting on for 2 hours. The venue is filthy and... More

We booked a hen party package at Bar Rumba to end off our night. The staff were lovely and friendly and accommodated us well (inc. door staff). The music was fantastic, along with the atmosphere and we all had a really great time. I would highly recommend for other hen do's if you want well priced drinks and a good... More

This was the last destination on a pub crawl that we went on. We got separated from the group and headed there with our wristbands just after the crawl got there. I should have followed the advice of many guys on this site who had reviewed and not gone there as whilst you'll see the most hammered girls being let... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
