Went to bar rumba for mine and my best friends 25th birthday in march & we had so much fun music was amazing. Party organiser sorted us out with 2 for 1 wrist bands for me & my guests and a table very good price. We enjoyed it so much my cousin celebrated his birthday in june!

The security wasn't helpful he didn't give entry who was on guest list.i am really disappointed by the service at front check-in point please try to be more polite towards your guest who already reserve booking for their even if they are coming late no point to throw them out with their friends it's kind a disgrace act by the security incharge guy at check-in point. .

The music was great and the area was well maintained by staff and security. However, we ordered a £300 drink package before hand and on arrival were informed that all drinks were 50% off. Meaning we had spent much more than if we had not paid for a drinks package and bought our drinks on the evening. visited Bar Rumba on 08 Jul 2017

Great night out. Book booth which was reserved. staff took us to our booth. Staff was excellent on written instructions as well as great staff team. Thanks particularly to Luiza and team on Saturday. Atmosphere was great with all kind of different age group, dancing to updated music. Spirts was a bit expensive but cocktail reason able. All in all a great night out. donnadee visited Bar Rumba on 24 Jun 2017

The DJ was over 50, but f@ck me he was good. He played a good set of varied music, and knew how to get the crowd going. Great atmosphere, loads of pretty girls on the dancefloor. Clearly the customer a few reviews down was on his period and just didn't know how to have a good time.

It's a shame the review 2 down was posted by some one who remained anonymous. We call them keyboard warriors. We were there on Saturday night & although a little slow to start, it was a top night. No issues with the music & the DJ had the crowd in the palm of his hand. Top night ... we will be back.

Can't really say how the vibe was inside the venue cause we didn't get in (although we were on the guestlist and had booked an area)! We were a group of 9 german girls, celebrating a hen weekend in london and it was pretty disappointing being asked to 'step out of the line' cause two of our girls seemed to have had a drink in the streets before. No one was drunk, not even tippsy - so there was no reason for sending us away. Little bummer but we had a good time at another venue then. Tina visited Bar Rumba on 13 May 2017

I went on a Saturday night and I bought a wristband that gave me free entry before 11. Me and my friends got there after 11 and still got free entry. The music was great! All sorts mixed together; throwback songs from 2010 mixed with today's charts! We loved it! Plus the offer we got given for 2-4-1 drinks till midnight from our wristbands saved us money but if it lasted for the whole night it would be great! visited Bar Rumba on 08 Apr 2017

Went to bar rumba last Saturday for the first time with friends to celebrate a birthday & we loved it.. The security on the door were friendly & the bar staff were fun. The music was spot with the DJ playing a mixture of current & classic R&B. We really had a good time & never got off the dance floor. Thank you Bar Rumba ... we will be back.

Booked the £500 vip package and it took over an hour and a half to receive all the drinks we had already paid for, very rude and unhelpful hostess on the night, we didn't receive a magnum sized bottle of Champagne which was part of the package despite me asking 3 different staff members, the two cocktails we received must of been mockails as no one could taste any alcohol in them. Came here for a hen party and I would not recommend it at all. visited Bar Rumba on 01 Apr 2017

The music and atmosphere was great, however, I was told that with my £200 package I got a bottle of premium spirit, bottle of champagne, sharing cocktail and a round of shots for everyone. I didn't get the bottle of champagne as they said it was a premium bottle of spirit or a house spirit with a bottle of champagne. This was not addressed to me so after waiting ages for the champagne we ended up not getting it in the first place which i had paid for visited Bar Rumba on 24 Mar 2017

I was in Bar Rumba two nights in a row. The first was a Saturday and my cousin and I were on the guestlist, we had a good night and the music was good, some old, some new, good rhythms. I felt it was a little too crowded, but other than that it was pretty good. On the following Sunday we were with a bar crawl. The dancefloor was off limits, so there wasn't much room for dancing, but then the music wasn't as good either, and this was a DJ with his nose in the air, who did not want to play the same kind of music as the night before. visited Bar Rumba on 04 Mar 2017

The night didn't start off well as I wasn't on guest list when I turned up, even though you had emailed me twice about guest list and reserved wrist bands. So after waiting half hour outside we nearly had to pay £10 each untill I argued it even though I had an email to prove it, plus they took half the groups ids and passports which we really should be told this before hand as people weren't happy to give someone there passport. Once I finally got in a had a good night. visited Bar Rumba on 11 Mar 2017

Average night, good table size and drink deals however, the bouncer (Soff) was rude and is a very bad representation of your bars values... (i paid for whole night in advance and I was promised Q jump, never got it though.. Would have been 5 star if it wasn't for him and his negativity/lack of literacy... Btw, the no request rule is so lame, I would be happy to engage further with the crowd thats where the energy sits.. visited Bar Rumba on 11 Mar 2017

Terrible experience! I was on the guestlist for me and 3 friends (4 guys in total). When we arrived, we were rejected entry even though we was on guestlist! They told us we needed girls with us! And we told him that if we get girls and come back if we were then allowed in and he said it is to late for that..so we ended up going somewhere else! Danm visited Bar Rumba on 04 Mar 2017

Upon arrival the bouncers were very nice & the night in Bar Rumba was great! There's always a good vibe when you go to Bar Rumba! I've gone over the years and the vibe has never died despite all the changes in music! I would've given this review a straight 5 stars BUT as per an email I received from Sales & events team that upon arrival we would receive a round of free shots but we didn't in-fact we almost charged entry before i told them we was the guest list which is a shame because this means there was a lack of communication on the door between the bouncers with the guestlist & without it. I don't normally complain over a free round of shots but if you're going to offer it as a promotion to come back to Bar Rumba upon arrival the members of staff should be aware of this. Other than that it was an awesome night! Would definitely recommend going back but just be a little careful if you are offered some sort of promotion to go to Bar Rumba as certain staff may not be aware upon arrival and you will miss out!

Good night in the end but we purchased weekend wristbands and despite saying this several times to the lady on the door she just kept waving us along and ignoring this fact so we did not receive these or any perks we paid for. Was very disappointing in that respect as we came early under the impression there would be a deal and we did not receive this. visited Bar Rumba on 25 Feb 2017

Been going for years, love the music but this past week it was too commercial. Plus, i've never actually got in for the price advertised by signing up to the guest list etc. They always find a reason/way to make you pay full price £10 even if you're meant to get free entry before X o'clock or £5. visited Bar Rumba on 11 Feb 2017

Indeed the place is wonderful. Different statges, with different ages and styles melting in the same place. The bouncers were cumbersome and acting as if they are the end of the world. They do not have any respect for any one. I had to insist and argue for them to believe me, I stand on the list. They need to come down to earth and have they do not fit with the high quality the place has an entertainer. berhe visited Bar Rumba on 28 Jan 2017

Music was great, drinks were 2-4-1 til midnight and free entry with £5 guestlist wristband, which actually meant we could go out in Central without the stress of checking the bank account in the morning...Will definitely return! Thanks for a great night Emilie visited Bar Rumba on 21 Jan 2017

Was here for my joint stag do with my fiancé and I was overly impressed. My best man wasn't aloud in because he was too drunk apparently but he went home so that we could enjoy the rest of our night, after all I did spend £150 on an area. The place looked nothing like the photos and was a lot smaller than I thought. £10 for a Bacardi and Coke is a lot of money and staff were rude. Not going back again even though iv been offered a free area and fishbowl I don't feel like it's a good place to go visited Bar Rumba on 22 Jan 2017

I had a nice time at Bar Rumba. I will say, they advertise on their website that if you are on guestlist and come before 12, there is no cover. So when I got there and they lied to me saying it was before 11 to get there, I was not pleased. When I got in, I asked my friends who got there at 11:25 if they paid cover, and they didn't. Nice time, but deceptive staff would be my review in one sentence. visited Bar Rumba on 16 Jan 2017

I booked myself and 2 additional friends into the guest list form provided online. I did understand at the time that the guest list entry time finished at 12am. However after reaching the club at 11:30pm I was told that I had to pay to enter. When I notified the front line staff that this was not the case and it stated differently to what was said. They wholeheartedly refused to accept the explanation and we had no option but to seek another venue. Disappointed in them. Thousands of pounds was missed by the club as I was with a delegation of the Saudi Football Federation. visited Bar Rumba on 09 Jan 2017

The atmosphere wasn't great and the drinks were very expensive. We were expecting a fun and entertaining night out. However, although arriving relatively early the club was empty, we went to the bar to order drinks and were greeted by very unenthusiastic bar staff. Our order was taken with some contempt, as if they didn't want to be there. We stayed for a further 2 hours until 1am at which point we decided to go elsewhere as the club remained empty and the staff were very blunt and abrupt to anything we asked. visited Bar Rumba on 01 Jan 2017

We had free entry until 12 and we're not allowed in due to one of my friends apparently being too drunk. The man told us to come back in an hour. She was perfectly coherent. I believe if was a ploy to stop us getting free entry therefore forcing us to pay. We went elsewhere instead. Lianne visited Bar Rumba on 27 Dec 2016

It was a group of three of us, two females and a male, they let both me and my female friend in and said my guy friend wasn't allowed in until he 'sobered up' even though he clearly was in a fit state to come in, this continued for about half an hour until we decided to go to somewhere else that didn't discriminate on sex. visited Bar Rumba on 28 Dec 2016

You are asking the question how was it ? I have booked my ticket online and I got refused at the door , I'm a grown up man who is working hard , I tried to appriciate my weekend off . The way I was treated was unnaceptable , I presented myself with respect to the Door man at 22:45 , I told them me and my friend booked our ticket online but we were told not tonight , we needed to bring girls but deep inside is not the reason why we got refused , you see it became very hard for black men to enter clubs in central londons , we have to prove others we are good guys , we are streotyped because of some few bad guys . The same night we got refused to enter three clubs .you do business with bad people and you are asking this question how was it ? . I hope you I have answered this question for you . visited Bar Rumba on 16 Dec 2016

I didn't really enjoy it because the woman that served me trick me over That's not a nice thing to me when I paid my money to enjoy my birthday party with my friends.

I have been to bar rumba several times, and has an amazing night regardless of the rude staff. However since they have done themselves up/ given the club abit of a revamp the music has gone downhill the night was terrible.

When we arrived despite having paid for weekend wristbands in advance, the bouncer told us we still had to queue and claimed we didn't have wristbands despite showing him the confirmation emails. We had to argue until another bouncer saw and explained to him that he was incorrect. But by this time this put a complete downer on my birthday night and because of this I would not come here again or recommend you to any friends. kateisaunicorn visited Bar Rumba on 10 Dec 2016

Poor service. They tried to get more money from us. When I booked online I got an email from the manager with the drinks packages. They were cool. But when we got there they told us we can't have any of the packages because we didn't booked a table from advance and we booked only for the guestlist. So we payed £250 for a bottle of grey goose and a table. And we were the only people who took a table. They should gave us the £250 package witch included a bottle of grey goose, a bottle of Champagne, a round of cocktails and a round of shoots. That's what they send me when I booked online. And as well there was some offers for Sunday night. But we didn't get any of them. Instead we ordered another 2 bottles of prosseco and they wanted to charge us £10 more. The explanation was they didn't update the prices in the menu. But finally we got them for the right price. The music was boring. Only rnb and Jamaican. We definitely wouldn't go there again. And the club looks very cheap. visited Bar Rumba on 13 Nov 2016

Absolutely horrible. Very very bad bouncers and managers. Jealous people. Have a problem with anyone who's young and beautiful. Started to fight with us with no genuine reason. Spoiled my birthday and made me cry. They look at you as if your a piece of shit. I'm praying it closes down as they are extremely unprofessional and don't deserve any success. They will put you on the guest list but when you turn up all excited they won't let you in. I have never drank a single drop of alcohol in my life and they argued that I was drunk. All I wanted to do is dance. Seriously it's better in hell then this horrible cold hearted club. Choice is yours now. I'm a very upset customer. I will never step foot in this hell fire again.

Awful - the bouncer on the door was horrendous and wouldn't let us in because we seemed 'too drunk', though we hadn't even had anything to drink yet! Then he proceeded to take my friend's ID off of her and wouldn't give it back for the better part of an hour. visited Bar Rumba on 26 Oct 2016

I haven't been here before and Saturday I wanted to see what rumba was like. I found online we could get wrist bands for £5 with 2 for 1 drinks before 12 which we were really excited for! Only thing is, the staff weren't very helpful when it came to ordering drinks. Most of them had no idea on the offer and a few times had to get a member of management over to sort it out. So not sure if I'll be returning simply because of this really; was frustrating because you shouldn't advertise something if you aren't going to fulfill it. Overall music and atmosphere was good. Shame about the cloak room - took me over half an hour to get my coat - too slow when my friend was wanting to leave. Thanks, carlie987@hotmail.co.uk visited Bar Rumba on 22 Oct 2016
