Weak...

This place isn't even worth your time. There are other salsa places that are way more fun and conducive to drinking and dancing your behind off. They have good waitresses, drab design, mediocre prices, good location, very rude security, and not enough room for a real salsa place.

Stay away

This place sucks. Me and a few of my girlfriends went out here about a week ago and I couldn't believe how rude the staff was. Its like they were all on meth or something idk. Even if the staff wasn't rude, the place isn't really worth going to more than another. Nice looking dance floor, but the staff wont have you dancing on it. What makes a bar good or bad really? Obviously how fast and nice the staff is imo so you don't have to wait so long to do what you came their for whether it be to dance, drink, or just socializing.

Do not go!

Me and a few buddies went to the Denver Cruisers and this was one of our stops. We waited to go in and got to the counter. As you can imagine the wait was kinda slow for how many people were there. But the waitresses were nice and acted quickly. The bouncers on the other hand decided that they were mega macho kinda guys (not really, fat short dood). I guess because there were a lot of people there they decided that they needed to be a bunch of ...holes. Having flash backs from saturday night I suppose. We were there on Wednesday and obviously there was no need to act they way they did. The denver cruisers are not exactly your average wanna be gangsters obviously. I had only had 3 beers (from somewhere else) up to the point of them grabbing my arm and forcefully taking my beer and throwing it away. Then trying to sway me around like I was drunk out of my mind off of their patio. All for yelling loudly to my friend on the other side of the patio fence... Distasteful way of dealing with the situation. Other people were treated the same say, but maybe they more-so deserved it. Not a very good bar, stay away.

Great club for Salsa Dancing

I went a month back and this club had some great people and a great atmosphere. The drinks were reasonably priced, The live band was great and the DJ was Ok for what he played, I'd much rather prefer DJ Lora or Mr Groove when it comes to latin nights but that's me, I always prefer DJs that do more when they mix. They also have great lessons for first time dancers singles and couples alike. Get there early if you are wanting lessons, I think 8? The club gets fairly packed with plenty of good looking guys and girls that just want one thing.... To dance (What sdid you think I was going to say?) LOL

Great Salsa Club - especially for those wanting to learn

I noticed there aren't any reviews on here since 2006 so I thought an update was needed. I just spent a good portion of my Saturday evening here (May 2008) and had a great time. I am still trying to learn how to Salsa so this seemed like a good place to go. Key tip if you are new to Salsa - arrive at the club at 8:00 p.m. and get lessons with Rachel. She's fabulous and you'll have lots of fun in this period of time before the club opens. For $20 as a couple we got admitted and almost an hour of instruction - pretty good deal. You can also hang out after lessons sipping margaritas on the patio before it gets crowded. Margaritas are also great - decent size and wel done. After about 10:30 the dance floor does get very crowded with the hard core Salsa crowd, but there's an overflow area of sorts around the bar where you can dance with your partner more casually - and if you want more room. This past Saturday there was also a live band that was very good.

The energy and atmosphere was fantastic - very lively and open. Admittedly it can be a bit intimidating if you aren't an experienced Salsa dancer, but we were both new to Salsa making plenty of mistakes and nobody seemed to care. On one other note - parking is very easy since this is sort of off the beaten path west of Broadway. We actually got street parking very easy when we showed up early. In addition, if you want to take a break and head to regular night club hip-hop/techno dancing Club Vinyl is less than a 5 minute walk down Broadway. I'd recommend Thursday or Saturday at La Rumba. A lot of fun.

Sleekly designed club with easy going atmosphere and great Friday Party!

If you head out to la rumba on a Friday night you'll be in for a differnt experience than other evenings. The Friday night party goes by the name of Lip Gloss and offers CD listening promotions and lots of dancing. The music selection ranges from Brit Pop Punk to early Hip Hop mixes and 90's classics you don't want to admit knowing all the words to. The flooor seethes with happy people pumping their bodies with great drink specials. You don't have to break the bank for $2 PBR or Gin&Tonic with decent to heavy pours.

The atmosphere is open, with lots of lounge style seating surrounding a huge dance floor. Purple and red lights dimly light the huge dance space, while a brighter lit bar is highlighted by a huge angled mirror which allows for people like me to enjoy the view of those around them subtley.

Definitely worth a visit on Friday night and no cover before 10pm.

Not too impressed anymore!

I have been a going to La Rumba for 6 years to dance to the hot and spicey salsa beats. The club is under new ownership and going down. They are not enforcing the dress code, undesirables are coming in and have rude behavior. I noticed most of the die hard La Rumba dance go'ers have taken to some other salsa club. I was disappointed to see that it is losing it's classy appeal!

Denver's best salsa dancing

La Rumba's is the best place to salsa in Denver. The music is great and the people are friendly. If you're single, you won't have any trouble finding someone to dance with here...
