Had a great night at Rumba last weekend for there themed night wild wild west! Got my cowboy hat out along with all the girls and headed down to party! Music was great! The staff were so friendly and fun! They seemed to be enjoying themselves too which is always nice! service with a smile all night! Great prices for the west end! And we enjoyed a complementary bottle of bubbly as it was my friends birthday! :) Would deffinatly recommend!! However i would recommend getting a booth or getting on the guestlist as the queue can get quite big!

Admittedly, it has been a while since I visited Bar Rumba on their Tuesday salsa night, but I do miss it.

I have been to BarRhumBar a couple of times. Its just off Picadilly Circus. Its a great night out in fact if there are a few of you going. I had a good time there. The music is real American Garage and soul with a flavour of Chicago house thrown in. Good to Dance to all night. I think the tourists spoil it a bit because the owners pump up the price of drinks because they know the tourist will pay them. The atmosphere is quite friendly as everyone is out to have a good time unlike similar london clubs such as bagleys. Well recommended!!! ... Read the complete review
