This place is no longer Rumba Room, it is now called Infusion Lounge or something like that.
The place is swimming in a crowd of low class drunken irresponsible young people. Unbelievable because other businesses in city walk has stepped it up a notch or two, with the exception of this place. I brought a friend with me, because my last experience (5 years ago) was great, back when the place was called Rumba Room and was under different management. I was deeply embarrasses at what a terrible vibe and tons of drunken people were falling and sliding on the walls from the minute we walked in.
Spoke with the staff to express my great concerns regarding safety and the fact that people pay a high cover charge fee for services provided, not to get bumped or grabbed by drunken kids. I spoke with the staff in hopes the new business owners will consider my feedback, turn things around and make this club a better quality place to be in. I will not be going back anytime soon.
Great Music! – This place is awesome, they play the best music and the best of all there are two floors so you can choose which type of music you like better, I heard some people dont like cause this place is crowded all the time but it is because its the favorite one ;)
Careful with the Second Floor! – One of these days the second floor is going to fall from being so over crowded. Good Luck walking to the bar to buy a drink, walking on 5 feet of mud would actually be easier to get through than the crowd, then you gotta yell at the Bartender for your drink because everyone else is, (looks like Wall Street). The second floor have good music though, and the crowd is a good looking crowd, just too many. The line is horrendous, looks like a Star Wars world premiere line, First floor plays live music, and before the freebie first come first serve seats are now VIP tables, go figure. How funny is that they are always empty, lol. I think the reason this place is crowded because many people think that this is the only club, there's so many!!!
Don't go it's a filthy location – The pictures do reflect the place. The floors are carpet & they are sticky all over the place. It's filthy. The Saturday crowd is trashy and mixed with gangsters and 40 year olds that act like they're 21 year old p orn stars. The place is not classy at all and the dance floors are over crowded. The men there feel that they have the right to pull the women they want to dance with. And the management was unprofessional in there. You think they would use some of that $20 cover charge to clean the place up a bit. DON'T GO, your better off anywhere else.
Worst place I've ever been too – After spending hours trying to get to the Rumba room, I was bitterly dissapointed.
The people at the door, the manager and the owner were so rude. The Rumba room must have all the money they need, because the definiteliy don't treat their customer's very well.
My spanish boyfriend would say the manger and however have "El sentido comun en el culo"
Crappy – This is the worst place i've ever gone to. It was a disaster, especially the manager he is a piece of s****.
boring and terrible amateur DJ – the DJ was horrible. songs were played 30 seconds each and then another (and REAL bad mixes, the song following the other song never matched in rhythm or pace), as if the DJ had no confidence. You couldn't get into the songs (of the few good ones). the rest was a bad mix of mexican and old 80's music.
The crowd was serious and no smiles, just boring.
Would not recommend and I'm amazed it got this many five star ratings.
Stampede!!! – This club is very diverse you see people of all ages dressed in their best!!! The drinks are pricy but you do get drunk here as I have seen. The line is long, and that ensures a stampede of crowds, which it is. Room #2 (Second Floor) Hip-Hop Room plays awesome music but it's so crowded so is the bar it looks more like wall street with disco lights than a night club.
Saturday Night At the Rumba Room – I've gone twice now had a lot of fun both nights. Two dance floors upstairs salsa, and downstairs Hip-hop.
Drinks are decent price, entry is a little high if you get there after 10pm its $20 plus $10 parking. So plan to get there before 10pm but a little hard if you driving through L.A.
Music upstairs is fun and upbeat, hip-hop DJ changes the music too quick only plays each song what seems like 30sec.
Crowd upstairs is a bit older, hip-hop floor is a bit younger.
Bring your dancing shoes the girls like to dance here. Girl aren?t stuck up.
Good crowds no fights.
Last call around 1:30AM
Latin jazz meets salsa and merengue on two of the city's biggest dance floors. – In Short
Two full bars and two dance floors contain Universal CityWalk's hottest nightlife scene. A mixture of DJ and live music, the atmosphere is never less than energetic, with crowds dancing as late as they're allowed to stay. The Room attracts casual passers-by as well as a regular crowd of serious dancers. The latter are a well-dressed bunch, and they come to impress.
