These are the best cocktails in Cleveland, set in a bar out of the 1930s. Great backroom, music, and an endless list of cocktail, many out of the 20s-30s. If you don't know what you want then tell the bartenders what you like they will help figure it out. Cocktails are expensive most at $18.00 some higher but worth it.

My husband and I love coming here for special occasions. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic, with soft piano music playing in the background. It really does have the feel of a speakeasy. The service is great here. They really are knowledgeable about the extensive cocktail menu, and are able to help with suggestions when choosing a drink. Everything is... More

If you're looking for the best cocktails you'll ever have, and don't mind paying more than elsewhere, this is the place to be. VTR has the ambiance of the old speakeasy, extremely helpful staff and the best cocktails I've ever had. My wife and I always make this a must-stop whenever we're dining in the area or have some extra... More

I got together with a good friend while on a business trip to Cleveland on this snowy Feb evening. After dinner he drove me over to the Velvet Tango Room where we finished the evening with drinks and a great conversation with the two bartenders. At 9:30 the place was not terribly crowded but it wasn't empty. Considering the weather... More

I went to the Velvet Tango Room for a work Christmas party. The atmosphere is cool and unexpected. You enter a seemingly run down house but when you get in, it's renovated amazingly. The drinks are spectacular!!! I mean, really spectacular. They do not have a kitchen so it's not a place for a meal. We had catered appetizers and... More

What a wonderful and special treat! When we arrived by Uber, the hostess held the door open and said nicely "We've been waiting for you!" We were escorted to the cozy back room where we met more friends. Service was outstanding. The menu of drinks was fun to read. I had an excellent Moscow Mule. They make their own ginger... More

If you Google "Moscow Mule" the Velvet Tango Room pops up...and while the name might conjure up something other than a cocktail lounge, that is exactly what it is. Food options are limited to some small plates, like fruit and cheese and some charcuterie (they were delicious, by way), but it is the drinks they were noted for. If you... More

Really great 40's meets today atmosphere and style. Easy parking local streets. We enjoyed sitting at the bar and watching the cocktail mixing. Very lovely place, piano music and more. It's a before dinner or after dinner or let's connect for a cocktail place.

I had heard great things about the Velvet Tango Room so I went there with great expectations. They were not only met, but exceeded. This watering hole is known for its classic cocktails, each made from the freshest of ingredients. The menu offers a little insight about each of the cocktails, including the intensity of the flavored as well alcoholic... More

Great little place on a dark street and an upscale feel once inside. The cocktails were very good with new, historic and old mixes. The staff is hard working, knowledgable, and friendly. They have a surprise in the back with a nod to the history of Duck island. Call ahead a reserve a place in the back it has a... More
