  • The Velvet Tango Room back story…
    Our authentic craft cocktail bar features a Jazz trio in the lounge nightly; a pianist in the back room starts at 9 (Note: back room is open to the public by reservation only on Friday and Saturday nights) – and, weather permitting, guests can take advantage of the finest and most private English garden patio this side of the pond, lovingly tended by our Founder. The infamous back room is available to rent for select private and corporate engagements Monday through Saturday. Questions? Drop a line to reservations@velvettangoroom.com.

    Paulius, our Founder and Boniface, is truly a Man of Mystery. After escaping from an unnamed country in Eastern Europe, he traveled to South America. Gradually, he made a name for himself in the tango bars of Buenos Aires, but when a price was put on his head by a jealous husband, he stowed away in the hold of a freighter he believed was headed to Marseilles. The ship finally put in at the Port of Cleveland. The gritty ambiance of the rusting city appealed to his aesthetic sense, and he decided to realize a long-cherished dream and opened The Velvet Tango Room in 1996. We’ve never looked back.

    Cocktails are made from scratch with fresh ingredients, so they do take a little longer; as the French say, l’expérience vaut la peine d’attendre. Ginger syrup and ginger beer for our famous Moscow Mule is made in-house, and we concoct our own special blends of bitters for an experience to remember.
