This place was a lovely little find. They play great live music almost every nice. On Saturdays they do a salsa class around 8 pm and after you can listen to the music and dance!

Great little place with BBQ tacos out the back. Live music inside, but both times we went it was empty. But if you like good tacos and a beer, this is the place. Much cheaper than other tourist places

Whenever my wife and I travel we wander the back streets to get the local atmosphere and stumbled upon La Rumba and had a blast joking with Jesus, eating delicious tortas Cubana (Cuban sandwiches) and, ahem, drinking a little. Jesus is a real crackup but...More

We opened La Rumba to offer a place with true Latin flavor that is free of touristy gimmicks. We love Mexico and the culture of Latin America and aim to share that through food, drink and quality live music. A good day for us is to have a mix of clientele where locals and tourists come together in a comfortable and inviting space.
