“Dark n dingy”
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...more

Unprofessional staff. Bought the ticket online. They said in the email that they were valid until 12 but when we got there they said they were valid only until 11 and we need to pay 10£.

I have been to Bar Rumba for X2 Comedy nights. I enjoyed thoroughly. The room is indeed extremely small, dark and cramped. So if you are not into that sort of thing, AVOID! I think less people would be more enjoyable. I have also attended...More

Horrible service. Treatment of the waitors and waitresses was very disrespectful. The act was fine but nothing exclusive. We came to London for a week to make a comedy club tour and the comedy carnival was a disappointment. The location of the club is great....More

Firstly I will say that the door security gentleman was extremely helpful. He over heard us questioning how to get back to Victoria station and he offered some help and advice regards busses. However that's the only positive. The venue is frighteningly cramped. I say...More

This place is absolutely awful. I unfortunately ended up here on a Friday night for a spontaneous night out as we could not get in to anywhere decent as we didn't have a ticket, etc. Not only is it very expensive, full of misogynistic, gross...More

I'm sorry you don't want all three beers but you could just split them with friends for a cheaper round or buy something else :) We will take on board the comments about the comedy to try and plan better for future shows! Drop us...More

Hi there, I'm devastated you've had this experience as I'm not sure how it could have happened other than due to poor communication. We run 2-4-1 offers all days of the week for £5 - you can check our socials and websites for the proof....More
