Went here for the comedy carnival on a Saturday night, seating was a little tight but the comedians were all very good. It was happy hour 7-8 so the drink were very cheap and not to badly priced in general. Stayed for an hour after when it turned into a nightclub, music was good and there was lot of people dancing and enjoying there selfs. More...

I went to this club last night with a friend of mine the music was amazing however when me and my friend were dancing some guy that worked as an entertainer came over to us and kept annoying us we told him to leave us alone he came really close to our faces we felt a bit uncomfortable after 15mins he left us alone. They didn't have any fizzy drinks such as Pepsi, lemonade, Fanta also my friend got charged £20 for the entry fee when it was only meant to be £10 my friend was annoyed More...

I thought I would take a chance, given the fact there are all these bad reviews. But door staff were great, thank you to the security in a hat upstairs for the queue jump, £5 entry - worth it, drinks were reasonably priced for Piccadilly circus, plus we also received complimentary VIP wristbands on 2-4-1 drinks until midnight which really went down well with my colleagues. good music and friendly bar staff, toilet could be kept in better shape but I guess it was quite busy. I will return for sure, and will bring my team down again. thanks for a good night to the guys at rumba More...

29 March 2019

A great night had by all. We paid for the party package that included a booth, bottle of vodka, shots and wrist bands. Worth every penny. Staff were great and the music was Brillient. Only negative, newer members of staff need better cocktail training! She went to put lemonade in the Boston glass and I had to tell her how it's done . Luckily a more experienced member of staff took over and the cocktails were great! More...

Was my Birthday recently and was looking for a place to celebrate. My colleague told me about Rumba and how they got drinks and a table. I decided to get the £250 one which included so many drinks and also our entry. The service was great and they went the extra mile to decorate with Birthday decorations. It was a nice touch. The night was really busy and took a while to get a drink at the bar once we finished the drinks. There was also a bit of a queue for the ladies toilets. Overall I was happy with the decision to celebrate my Birthday there and may think about returning in the future. More...

it's not a terrible nightclub. it was decent when I there. good things about it on a weekend. it I recommend go on a Fri or sat. everyone is polite and nice. and music is decent and it has two floors. the bad things, is DJ needs to add more lights and smoke machine. and have more upbeat and catchy music. and the price isn't that bad. yes it's high but if u could how much u r getting in a glass it's worth it. upstairs rating (ONLY) 3.5 OUT 5 More...

I Popped in Saturday night to meet a friend and was very impressed! Felt very welcomed at the front door, the staff was very friendly, no hassle while I was in the venue everyone was having a great time and the music was spot on so if you like RnB this is the venue for you as the dj knows what people want...... I will be back again (Y)

13 August 2018

I went there on Friday. The comedy show was excellent! The music was boring pop type but I had a great time because it was my friend's birthday and I decided to enjoy the night regardless of the music and the abrupt security guys, they were doing their job I guess �

13 August 2018

TigerTiger closed early and my friend and I got a stamp to come to the after party (Rumba) honestly I had an amazing time the music was just perfect, there was good vibes but the only thing that went wrong was how a bar member was rude to my friend like she waited to be served and whilst she was saying what she wanted the bar guy rudely moved on to someone else. Customer service is vital.
I would recommend this place ,I met some really cool people and the staff were friendly

First off, yes since the start of the year I have had a bad experience with bar rumba but as a company they're amazing at valuing their customers feedback, over the past couple of months I've seen changes at bar rumba that have moved their club from an 'OK' night to an amazing night! ! They have refurbished the booth VIP seating areas and made sure the process of being seated and attended too is quick and the staff are always polite and well informed!!
I have noticed they have got new and more bouncers/security and, based on recent encounters are very professional and extremely friendly!
The drinks prices have gone up a little bit but it is worth it because the quality of drinks are amazing!
The music from the dj on a Friday night is amazing if you like rnb and even though there is lots of people he will do shout outs for special occasions.
Bar rumba is in the perfect location as for night busses to lots of areas are only a 10 minute walk away.
I would definitely recommend rumba to anyone looking for a an amazing night and disregard any of the previous negative reviews as for bar rumba has improved for the better!!

Me and a group of lads came for my friends stag do on sat 6th Feb. I can honestly say we weren't sure what to expect before coming as reading some negative reviews.

Now we have been it shows how wrong a lot of people are. The comedians were very good and current, the staff could not done any more for us and we're always making sure we were topped up with drinks and that we were having a good time. I know people have different experiences. If you read the negative ratings they all or most start with " we was having a good time until", so it shows they were having a good time until they got too drunk or was told no. I would definitely recommend made us feel very welcome.

I came here a few weeks back for a comedy night on a saturday night. The place was packed within minutes and there was a good atmosphere. Before the show started we made good use of the happy hour, which was really good value for money. Otherwise, the drinks were typical london prices. The comedy show was decent, as you usually expect, you get a mixture of good and slightly cringey acts! We enjoyed ourselves and considering we got our tickets from time out offers for dirt cheap, it was a good night! More...

I definitely felt it in the morning. More...

29 August 2014

The bar overall was good. We had fun, the music was great, just what i listen to. When we came there was no cue, and almost no people inside the club, which made me thing: that must be the lamest club in london. But closer to 11 o clock people started coming, and soon it was crowding with people. There's a separate space for dancing, you can give them your bags, 1 pound per bag. In most clubs they say you can get before 11 for free, but it never happens, always end up paying as they let the people in after 10.30, and you have to come extremely early to get in for free. There was one minus, that when reserving a table for 7 people, it was a bit too small, however it was free, we had to pay 25 pounds and then on arrival those money were used to pay for the drinks. The drinks are quite cheap comparing to other clubs, they sell buy one, get one free and I didn't stumble upon creepy people at all :) More...

Nous y avons passé la St Patrick avec des amis. Bien qu'il ouvre tôt le club ne s'est rempli qu'après la fermeture des bars. La musique est généraliste. Le lieu est sympa. L'entrée est de 10 livres malheureusement la boisson offerte ne se résume qu'à un shot de mauvaise manzana More...

I've been 2 times this week. Very accessible location, on shaftesbury avenue, near Piccadilly Circus. Nice staff, very nice are the sexy shots girls and the lithuanian bargirl. DJ is most of the nights very good, playing commercial electro all night long. No queue to get it. No queue for the cloakroom. People inside the clubs are nice, not trash-posh like in the other clubs in the same area. Get in, take shots, dance and have fun!!

Went to Rumba recently for a mate's birthday and had an amazing time. Definitely does what it says on the tin, a great party bar in a great central London location. Well worth a visit; music was on point!! Drinks maybe a bit pricey outside of happy hour though. More...

I love this place! Friday and Saturday nights here are so lively and fun. Good crowd, good music and reasonably priced drinks for Leicester Square. You can even get on a guestlist for free entry. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun lively night out! More...

I went to Rumba bar 2 weeks ago with my friends. Searching for a night club one evening we got to Rumba by an accident. I really liked the atmosphere and we spent a great time there so I'm definitely making a reservation for next week!
