Great place for Hip Hop! – Used InstantNightLife website to skip the line - DJ was awesome, definitely worth it!
Rumor - very beautiful crowd – I had a great time with my friends. We checked out instantnightlife's website and it accurately told us that Rumor had a lot of women and they were gorgeous. Where do they come from?
Worth checking out InstantNightlife before heading out... – Nice club but def worth checking out the InstantNightlife website before heading out to beat the long lines...
Fun night out will become a regular hangout! – This club isn't for a crowd looking to spend 3 dollars on a beer, if thats what you're looking for there's plenty of bars that you could find that will take care of your needs. Rumor, however isn't such establishment. Its a high end night club that appeals to high end cliental. Dress code is required and you must look good to be able to get inside. Although you might be dishing out more money than you intended, you know what they say you get what you pay for!
AWFUL AWFUL!! – This place is terrible!! The bouncers need to get a swift kick in the @ss and realize they are not GOD, and that the patorns that come to their club pay THEIR SALARY!!! SO BE NICE!!! (apparently this place is also known as Chaps?? Weird)
I went there for my birthday and it was, regretfully the most awful birthday ever! BTW I only gave it one star becasue it wouldn't let me submit NO STARS!! Which is what this palce deserves.
We got "hooked up" byt heir promo manager, who was also useless. She had no say over anyone/anything, especially not the bouncers - they event treated her like sh*t!!
The cover is too high for a crappy SMALL place like this. Drinks were even more unreal ($13 for a rum and coke??? really??) and small, like super small.
Then, this place gets raided and watched by @sshole cops on a regular basis (I even called the supervisor of the boston police department to file a harrassment complaint, and they claim there were no undercover cops in tha area...even more shaddy).
The bouncers treat people like dirt. So unbelieveably rude and physical you don't even want to try and have a good time just in case one of them bites your head off and kicks you out...literally!!
DJ is not great either. Place was kinda dead for Boston on a Sutrday night. Bartenders don't know what they're making. If you ask for something and they don't know what it is they'll just make you something esle they want.
Just don't waste your time. Boston is full of better places with better people, both inside and out.
THE WORST CLUB TO GO TO ON ANY NIGHT. – FIRST THEY GET RID OF LANDSDOWN STREET, AND NOW THEY DOWN GRADE THIS SH*T TO A PLACE CALLED RUMOR. RUMOR MY *SS, TRUTH BE TOLD. Your club s*cks.... Your bouncers need to pull the stick out of their asses, secondly You charge way too much for a g*dd*mn drink and a cover. I could have taken a ride with my friends to the beach and drank my self to oblivion, and have ourselves a grand ole time times 20 with the same amount of money i would spend for a single drink at your RETARDED CLUB. I MEAN COMMON. the music is not and i say it's NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CROWD. THE DJ IS TERRIBLE, EVEN F*RT (please put in the A) SOUNDS BETTER THAN THAT SH*T. CHECK YOUR ATTITUDES, DECREASES YOUR PRICES, PLAY FOR THE CROWD... AND REMEMBER WE PAY YOUR g*dd*mn salary....F*CKING C*ACK HEADS.......AND READ YOUR REVIEWS. YOUR CLUB S*CKS.......LUCKY I GAVE U A STAR........... F*CK IT .... I WANNA CUT THAT SH*T IN HALF.......half a star dammit... F*cking retards. F*CK IT.............I'M GONNA GIVE YOU B*TCHES A QUARTER OF A STAR D*MN IT...... you don't even deserve half.... if it's up to me... I wont give you a d*mn star.... F*CK THIS review.... YOUR CLUB S*CKS PERIOD......................OH BY THE WAY. MACHINE IS MUCH BETTER... ABSOLUTELY MY FAVORITE GAY CLUB.
Worst time I ever had!!! – If you're looking for long lines, rude staff, overpriced drinks and the worst DJs in the city, then Rumor is your place. As if standing in the cold wasn't bad enough, the $25 cover charge almost pushed me over the edge. Then, for what reason I can't understand, after paying that extortion money I was treated to some of the worst hospitality (rude staff) and certainly the worst music I've ever had the displeasure of encountering. The DJ kept interrupting every song 20 seconds into it to "shout out" to some loser he knew in the crowd only to then switch to another song. And this went on and on and on...all night!!! The crowd was thug-like, the women were disgusting and the place smelled like used diapers. Do yourself and anyone you're with a favor, find somewhere else to go. Trust me!
Rumor is back!!!! – My friends and I attended Rumor lastnight for the first time in awhile. The club was packed. I was so happy to see that one of there old djs DJ SENDER was there it was a great surprise. Hopefully Rumor can keep it up we will deffinitly be back. Great party lastnight everyone there i would have to say was satisfied..Thanks again.
THE WORST – Some guys above says "If your looking for a fun, let loose party..." stfu! This place (rhymes with mucks) so much... It's also sort of a magnet for people who are horrible. Like really thin euro dudes who are mean muggin you and your like, "dude, your a foot shorter then me and your expensive shirt is barely hanging on your chest... don't try to mean mug me and stop bouncing your head so stupid-like".... long story short, last time I was there the bouncer turned down the music and started chanting "BOSTON (Rhymes with mucks)! BOSTON S*****!.." and the people actually got into it... I don't even understand this much less agree with it. Someone else please name any other bar, resturant, or club, in the entire city where this would fly... or tell me why you would ever want to go to a place where it would fly.
AVOID RUMORS AT ALL COSTS – I went there APRIL 18, 2008 (It was A saturday anyways). The club opened up and we waited in line for about an hour. The bouncers on the outside were ok and so were the ones inside. Minus one that spends the whole night inside walking around and flashing a flashlight in your eye trying to look tough. The cover was 25 $ . Once in they then told us one of the rooms was private and for the promoters friends only. The drinks inside are 12 $ The music is techno and horrible. They clam they play rap but if you talked with the DJ which I did, he will tell you that he doesn't like playing rap. So there were 3 rap songs all night. The crowd is made up of mostly of snobby international upper class. No one there really talks to anyone else besides who their with. There are VIP tables which take up all of the room and you can't even go near them without a bracelet. Overall the club is REALLY BAD. I gave it all the opportunity to impress me but it just made me broke and upset that I didn't go somewhere better.
