The Velvet Tango Room is the place that 's always rumored to be real, but nobody really knows for sure. Yes, it's real. And no, it is not marked from the street. Take the address, because you'll need it to find it. Once you find it though, it's like walking back in time.
Ladies are treated like, well, ladies. Each receives a rose upon entering. Look around and you'll feel like you've entered a 1920s salon. Be forewarned however that the prices reflect the elegance of the surroundings. And wear your most elegant. This is a place to see and be seen, or to have a most romantic evening.
The Tango Room specializes in champagnes, scotches, bourbons and the like. Exquisite chocolates too. Please don't order a beer. And please don't make a spectacle of yourself. And please oh please don't gasp when you get your tab and find that a normally $8-$10 drink cost you $20-$25. You're paying for the exclusiveness after all.
I wouldn't recommend being a regular at the Tango Room, but it's worth it to check it out. Perhaps after a concert at Severance Hall, or something similar. Everyone should get dressed up and go out for champagne at least once in their lives, and the Tango Room is perfect for doing just that.
