Ben was the most unpleasant maître d'. He had an attitude from the start. They would not allow us to book a reservation, they made us wait 30 minutes and would not provide us a drink. When we gave each other a peck on the cheek we were told that was inappropriate? Dear Ben. Life is short and you seem... More

I have been here three times now and have been very impressed with the taste and quality of the cocktails. One thing that was different in my last visit was the service. The bartenders were very unhelpful, whereas my first two visits they spent time with the customer helping with which cocktail they may like the best. They were standoffish... More

Drinks are hand crafted. Don't expect to get a drink right away because it takes a little tone to make drinks from scratch. Some of the wait staff are true jerks and think their &$@ doesn't stink. Come on guys, you have people coming from all over for a nice experience and you ruin it.

I was in Cleveland as the guest of locals. The Velvet Tango Room is not the kind of place that I think most visitors would find on their own. It’s away from downtown, and it’s barely marked on the outside. You could walk by and never know it was there. Inside, it’s just a “classy” place. Sophisticated, erudite, professionally congenial....

There's not much room to Tango in this trendy nightclub, but it's certainly well worth a visit to the Velvet Tango Room to unwind, to enjoy great live-jazz and to imbibe a superb cocktail. We were very lucky to find a close parking spot on the same street.

When my partner and I were going to be in Cleveland together, the one thing we were both excited about was checking out the Velvet Tango Room. The entire premise of the bar was exciting, and the reviews were wonderful. We were sure we would go and have a great time, as we are both lovers of well-made cocktails. So... More

We visited for the first time for my hubby's birthday. I had read that VTR's motto is something like, "you can never be too dressed up". So, for fun, we really dressed up. Sadly, most people don't - guys wearing golf shirts in a place like this is a crime! We had not made reservations for the back room since... More

Know going in this is not a discount bar experience, but the drinks are well worth it. Great jazz band as well. Will be returning.

Attended a pre-wedding party! It was wonderful! The bartender was super great, we were there on Friday, May 1st and I regret I cannot remember his name but he was wonderful. You cannot beat the atmosphere with the fireplace and the backyard, we really loved it!! We arrived by and left by Uber.
