Rumba Description

Book a table at Rumba

Shaftsbury Avenue's Bar Rumba has been at the cutting edge of London's club culture for decades and is one of the best clubs in London's West End, partying every night of the week. Bar Rumba caters to London's love of smaller, more intimate venues, with a soundsystem and DJ line-up that wouldn't be out of place in the world's finest and biggest clubs. An institution in London's clubbing scene, Bar Rumba has seen the likes of Giles Petersen, Carl Cox, Derrick Carter, Norman Jay, Masters At Work and Todd Terry grace the decks. Of course, there was DTPM way back in the day, and the legendary Movement, responsible for bringing Brazilian drum n bass giant, Marky into the UK for the first time, plus regular sets from the likes of Fabio and Grooverider, Goldie, Hype et al.

“I love Rockaoke. I swear I thought I was an actual popstar for a bit. Drinks very good value too. Definitely recommend giving it a whirl.”

“The only place in W1 that caters for real music fans, everyone in this club is dancing, there is not standing against the wall looking stoosh here. The drinks are cheap for W1 standards and the atmosphere is a good one. Music to expect on a Friday night: Hip Hop, R N'B, Bashment, a l'il Tupac and Dipset, Funky House, and some retro i.e Cameo - Candy etc. This is the only place I feel in W1 you get your money's worth a lot of the other clubs in Central a prentencious, over priced, and the DJ's do not know what they are doing on the decks!”

“This is the only place you can hear REAL music in the West End now and not the generic house/rnb crap most other clubs are playing. Drinks are reasonable too. Only draw back is it gets too packed.”

“Bar Rumba has always been a cool night out for me. I used to go on Wednesday nights where they would literally play anything and I would land up staying on the dance floor for most of the night. Sometimes it can be quieter on certain nights, but all that means is you need to drag a big group of your friends with you.”
