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.

Definitely a no! I understand if they need people to work outside this place to get people to go inside. We were talked into visiting this place, it's nothing like the pictures, it's small, crowded and your hands could touch the ceiling. We were promised shots if we went in. Had to pay 5£ though. The shot was .... Well... More

Music good, location perfect, good ambiance as well. However, it was really expensive and the bar manager decided to obey special offer and charge us much higher price despite reminded by one of the bar staff about special offer. Moreover, he was very rude and direct about charing us more. Excellent service received from Emily thou. Will return due to... More

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.

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.
