I travel the world and visit hundreds of bars and restaurants every month. It's very rare that I would ever ever post a negative review. The bar is small and quirky. It's a little worn and could do with an overhaul. I was completely shocked...More

Excellent drink menu completely made up of vintage recipes. Everything is done by hand ("we don't have a blender on the property", we were told:) Each drink was perfectly prepared and delicious! They are happy to discuss the flavor profiles and help you pick something...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...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...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...More
