Owner description: 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.

I went to the sat night comedy gig this weekend with a few friends and it was literally the worst gig we've ever been to. All of the acts seemed to have a running 'I'm a heavy drinker and women all suck' theme that just got more and more tedious and offensive as the night wore on. None of this... More

Venue is okay, but overall you may as well stay in your local oceana, or other basic club. The music was less than interesting. And the bouncers try to extort you by asking for money to skip queues, as if it wasn't enough that entry was £20 and drinks were extortionate. I realise it's central London and it's to be... More

Booked the VIP area for a party and we were really taken care of by the staff. Great drink packages for large groups and the music was fantastic too. A top night out in London, for a really good price and it seemed like everyone in the place was loving life too. Definitely worth a visit and will be partying... More

I have been to Bar Rumba a couple of times before and every time I have been it has always been an enjoyable night. I was there the weekend just gone with some friends for one of their birthday's. The drinks are cheaply priced for a central London club which is always easy on the wallet, the music is pretty... More

We pre booked tickets which included 2 drinks from the bar however they do not inform you at the time of booking that the drinks only include one type of bottled larger, vodka and mixer or glass of wine, they sting you for any ther type of drink you purchase so that side...

It was my brother in-laws birthday so my partner organised for 9 of us including four girls to have a night out at bar rumba. My partner organised it a week in advance and spoke to the manager on several occasions including on the same day we were attending regarding dress code, guest list, times etc. Our group arrived at...

If you've had a few drinks and you want to dance in close proximity to others, then go. Young crowd (25 and under mostly). Unfriendly bouncers and door guys, even though we were just two girls (we are 27 and 28). Long line for coat room, even on a Monday. Top 40 music. Pretty much what you'd expect from a... More

We booked tickets for Rumba on NYE. Negatives – Rumba needs some TLC. The toilets are small & there was always a queue. The Décor & lighting is out dated (although the laser show was good). Positives – The bar staff & security were very friendly, good mix of people in the club. And hats off to the DJ as... More

16 or so of us went to Bar Rumba for a few drinks after our annual Christmas meal. When we got there one of their sales guys sorted us out with some deals. He was really friendly, and made sure we always had a fresh bucket of beers on the table when it was near to running low. The atmosphere... More
