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.

While it appears that people either love it or hate it, I thought it was so-so. Wouldn't reccomend but if I was with one of those people who loved it, I wouldn't refuse to go.

Read mixed reviews about this place but thought I would give it a go anyway. Very big mistake! Booked a table with the payday package for 13 of us for my birthday, checked, double checked and triple checked with the member of staff on the phone that we would not get turned away for being an all male group.

Booked a table for 13 of us for my 18th using the party package, such good value for money for what we got, staff were all lovely and the whole group had a great night, highly recommended for value and a good night out, can't wait to go back again!

We stumbled up on Bar Rumba never been there before. Got there around midnight and the place was rammed . Considering how busy it was we got served very quickly. The music was great and an all round great atmosphere . Staff were friendly and helpful we'd left our coats in the booth unattended and they kindly had put them... More

Ten of us visited this venue as part of a weekend away for a hen night. We were placed on the guest list which was great and arrived quite early on in the night. Initial thoughts were positive - even the drinks were priced reasonably for London. We placed our coats in the cloakroom for £2 per item. Music was... More

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
