This place needs some real people training, booked a table and my group was t allowed in because they weren't on guest list! Erm I had a table booked for one person, yh okay -_- door staff was all over the place not knowing what they doing half the time so even tho I was a paying customer my group got dismissed as quickly as possible meaning half of the group didnt get in. Word of advice bar rumba if u are going to have tables where people pre book, actually know what ur gna do with the group once they get to the place, making me waste my money! So anyone tht wants to book a table there I wou

I'd recommend Rumba to anyone that's looking for a vibrant fun night in west end. Had my birthday party there 2 weeks ago and for £15 per person . They organised my area ,drinks and entry . It was a good atmosphere all round and all of my guest had an enjoyable night. Regards Darren

I happened to pass this club whilst visiting central london. OMG. amazing location and so homely, staff very friendly and met some cool people too. Would certainly recommend paying Rumba a visit. Although, when I left I was gutted I couldn't come back, my flight was the next morning. ;-(
When back in London I'm back at Bar Rumba. x

Really enjoy this place! It never fails!!
Went to two places before coming here! Wish we just came here in the first place. From the door to the bar everything went smoothly. Not gonna name the other venues but Bar Rumba!! You outshone the two "A-Listers" nightclubs by ever so f***ing far!

Will be recommending you guys to my friends. And anyone reading my review!
I you wish to party in the west end then make sure you book at Bar Rumba!
I even took their number 0207 287 6933

Great Party venue, music, staff and vibe was amazing. My only gripe is that there food isn't great, but to make up for it they sell Pringles, so I snacked on them.
I will return, but will hit a restaurant before I start on the drink!

I came to bar rumba last weekend and i unfortunately had to wait quite some time in their queue and was told they had reached capacity, thought to myself "WHATEVER MATE" as it was only 12:30.. To my surprise they actually were. i waited still. On entry into their venue the door host was VERY apologetic toward us having to wait in the queue for so long, then to be greated by such a pleasant and interesting door girl. Cloack room took a while to have my coat put away but from there it was probably one of the most memorable nights i've had since maybe 2008 (where clubs were about the music and environment and not the types of drinks sold and outfits worn). Rumba has a diverse collection of people that seem to be out to just let off steam!! I will be coming again, but on this occassion i know i'll be making a guest list reservation and arriving at 10pm to avoid the queue issue which is the only reason i have given a 9 out of 10 rather than a 10.. Thanks Rumba guys. You made my night. (Charlie & Emma were very proffessional on the bar, nice to meet you Emma, wink wink :) )

Another amazing night, this little bar is quickly becoming my favourite west end club... No protentious staff, it's all about the music, dancing and drinks (should a night out be about anything else?) Highly recommend anyone to give it a go...

Me, my sister and all of the girls went last night for my sisters Hen Party and would just like to say a massive thank you to the girls behind the bar for being brilliant. We were very well looked after and managed to make our way through the whole cocktail menu with no complaints from the staff even though they were so busy.

What a fantastic night and what a great start to out weekend in London xx

The music maybe good but on a Friday the crowd is not so great. massive meat market with lots of lecherous men around.

I've been going to Bar Rumba nearly every Thursday for drum and bass for the last few years. The line ups are always good and unlike the bigger Friday raves at larger clubs, it attracts a really friendly crowd...and its a lot cheaper!
