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.

The drink prices were kind of high considering what they actually pour for you. We got shots and put them on the table while we got everyone together. The shots were so small that a worker walked by thinking it was empty and tossed it out. Guard your drinks! A friend asked the bartender for a replacement and was hesitant... More

Went downstairs and the dance floor was full with everyone... More

Its been a while since I went to Rumba & went for a friends 30th birthday on Saturday. We all had a brilliant night. The music was brilliant & the DJ was spot on. My only negative was that the dance floor was a little too busy with hardly any room to move & it also gets very hot. Its... More
