velvet tango room

You may have already seen this (I’m a little behind in my news these days…), but the Velvet Tango Room was recently featured in USA Today. The brief article is entitled, 10 Great Places to Slip into a Modern Speakeasy. If you have never experienced the VTR, be sure to soon. We’re lucky to have a place like that here, and it really is like stepping back in time.

    Before I (sadly) left Cleveland for a second time, I went a few times and couldn’t figure out the place. The VTR was just the usual crowd of bar-frequenting West Siders who peculiarly decided to wear Prohibition-era costumes and pay a huge premium to the house for the privilege of drinking the same glass of scotch or vodka.

    The fact that the USA Today lauded it is all I need to know.
