The VCC is an amazing little speak-easy type place with the best cocktails in Dublin. A little pricy but the quality of the drinks totally justifies this.

Fantastic seating area - really cool, loved the atmosphere and the whole speakeasy concept. Drinks menu is really long, so allow yourself 15 mins to peruse. Great for an intimate drink

My wife and I were booked in last Saturday evening and we were very well looked after by our host Ann Marie. This is our second visit to VCC and would recommend it very highly, the cocktails were outstanding and the service and recommendations from Ann Marie was fantastic! We will definitely be back for a visit the next time we are in Dublin!

Our experience at the VCC was outstanding! The atmosphere and extensive cocktail menu alone are enough to rave about. But the service was also top notch. My one advice is you MUST have a reservation especially on a weekend as the place fills up very quickly.

My mom and I were in Dublin for a few nights, and someone recommended VCC. It completely surpassed my expectations. It is truly a speak easy with just a small sign in the door and a door bell. Staff was super helpful and kind. The ambiance is unique with a great vibe. Cocktails are delicious and the food was outstanding. We split three shareable and it was plenty. Look forward to returning on my next trip to Dublin. Oh and music was cool without being overwhelming.

Little gem 💎 in the heart of temple bar. Well worth a visit. Our waiter was lovely and very attentive but we found it difficult to understand is accent which is a barrier when asking for recommendations off the cocktail menu. Overall it was a lovely experience.

I am coming here nearly 7 years, since it opened, its a special treat, really good cocktails and the food is tasty, the roof top bar is lovely during the summer, and to sit at the bar and watch the detail that goes into the cocktail preparation, and chat with the knowledgeable bar person, all in all I would recommend a visit

Went as a couple, lovely and romantic setting! Hard to find initially but got there in the end 😂 very knowledgeable bar tender. We were given seats at the bar which was a little uncomfortable but nothing worth complaining about.
It says on description about hen dos but I personally don’t think it’s the right atmosphere if you’re gonna verge on the rowdy side! Would definitely go again!

No cocktails prices on menu.
One waitress for the whole floor made it hard to get service or wait extra time to order a drink. We gave up ordering dessert due to waitress being busy with other tables- no waitresses fault.
Other thank super expensive- even for Bloody Mary that is usually a common cocktail that costs less than other...

The food and service were good, but the venue is very small. There were 11 of us, and when making the reservation I was told we'd all be at the same table. This wasn't the case. VCC gave us 5 small separate tables that they tried to put together. It was very awkward to get up and move around. I ordered a steak (medium rare), and I'm so sorry to say it was dry.

Outstanding. Finally, a Dublin club that is exactly what they claim to be. A retro speakeasy with the ambiance and atmosphere of the era. The staff is stellar: a great hostess that calls to confirm reservations, friendly and personable servers, and master mixologists that know the drinks at the historical level and flavor profiles.
Returning to Dublin after some time, it was sad to see all the pubs to be essentially the same. Same drinks and menus, loud, over crowded, lacking substance. VCC is the opposite. No televisions, era style music, crowds are controlled by reservation, and the drink variety is exceptionally large. A true 5 star experience.

Ann Marie and Gareth are the two of the most incredible people in the Dublin. The food is outstanding, the drinks were epic (let Gareth pick, you won’t be disappointed), and the service is worth it’s weight in gold!! Make a reservation and plan on spending a lot of quality time there!!

We loved our night but we were seated near to the stairs that lead to the smoking area and we were quite cold - that was our one quibble! We would go again but would make sure to be seated elsewhere

Fantastic find in the heart of Temple Bar area!!. You enter by ringing the bell of an obscure door and are taken to your table in a room reminiscent to back in the 1920's lit by candlelight!! There are a huge amount of cocktails to choose from (to suit all tastes!!), they are beautifully presented and ours all tasted amazing!! Would highly recommend!!
