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

This place is great! The drinks couldn't have been any better, the music was excellent, the wall hangings were interesting, and the stories and the brief tour were fascinating.

You may drive right by - the place isn't much to look at, and is a little off the beaten path. But once you walk in, VTO will win you over! I always sit at the bar - the bartenders are true mixologists and are a delight to converse with! The drinks menu is full of old-school classic drinks such... More

Not much to look at from the outside, but just wait till she opens. Drinks are $$$ but worth every cent. Great atmosphere and company. Sidecar, Rust Belt, and Moscow Mule all stand out.

If you are looking for a shot and a beer, the staff will help you branch out;) Excellent and expertly crafted custom cocktails. Atmosphere is charming, maybe a bit pretentious, but like your fancy grandma's fur coat. Local or visitor alike should uber on down. Drinks are all one price, not really a food place. I love The Final Word... More

Old style cocktail bar with an extensive cocktail menu( extensive means an actual full bound menu of classic and future classic cocktails). Bullet holes in the paint copper ceilings, Jazz in the back room, and friendly service. Definitely not cheap ($70/4 drinks) but these drinks are made to be sipped and enjoyed not like the highballs you get at other... More
