“Bizarre but fun”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

We like to dance and we often find that you can get some decent dancing space if you get to a club early. As we are in our early sixties it also spares us from the circles of drunken women that usually dominate dance floors later in the evening. We decided to check out Rumours, as it was near our hotel and it opened early. Got there at about 7 p.m. to find the place packed and an average sized dance floor with virtually no space available.
It was like going back in time. Everyone was dancing like we used to dance in the 70’s. Unlike most places these days, men actually were dancing, mainly with their feet nailed to the floor and moving their arms back and forth like they were playing trains but not going anywhere. Some of the women also do this, but others kick up their heels and wave their hands and wiggle their behinds. When a slow number comes on they fall into each others arms and sway, like environmentalists hugging a tree.
If you want to dance, just find a little space and stick to it. No one knows about moving round a dance floor, even for slow numbers. Be prepared for elbows. Be prepared for women who give you dirty looks if you know how to dance with any kind of ability.
To make it more bizarre they were playing and showing videos of disco music from the 70’s and 80’s, and some of the guests were dancing solo in cages above the dance floor. Mainly women, but some men took turns in the cages.
My impression was that almost everyone was local and regular, and we got some very unfriendly looks and comments, both on and off the dance floor.

“Odd "Sports Bar" screens running during early evening dancing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We went to Rumours last night with another couple for some early evening dancing. It has been a long time since we were there. We were surprised by two things: First, valet parking charges $25...and second, the big TV screens were running ESPN sports games...high school football and basketball...while music blared for the dance floor. Enjoyed the dancing and table service was good...neither pushy on drinks nor not around. But they definitely need to get rid of sports on the screens and the $25 valet parking. However, there is no cover charge in the early evening.

“Rip OFF!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

This place is NASTY! I remember going there about 20 some years ago and it hasn't changed one bit ..and that's NOT a good thing. The place is dirty, falling apart, nasty! They charge you a whopping $10 to get in (you can't see the place, til you get further in) and when we went in...there was some 35 yr. High School Reunion going on and even that wasn't a good turn out...but you get the age group. Granted I'm no spring chicken but this crowd was not lively. We turned around and tried to get our money back and the woman at the door had the nerve to say, "This IS a club" I was thinking..."SERIOUSLY?!!! YOU ARE TACKY!" Talk about a rip-off! NEVER AGAIN! STAY AWAY people..it's terrible!
