La Rumba

99 W. 9th Ave. Denver, CO 80204 | Central Denver | 303-572-8006

Location Description:

With cove lighting illuminating the brushed-steel front and back bars and sweeping color kinetics, La Rumba resembles a liquor-filled laserium. Add to that the award some great club nights - Latin on Fridays and Saturday's Salsa night -- and this Golden Triangle treasure becomes one hot tamale.
