Lover the place. Perfect lighting, ambiance, and noise-level; you can hear all your friends, while the lovely background music fades out the conversations of others. Great and helpful waiters, brilliant cocktails and hefty menu makes it a one-of-a-kind place in Dublin and I will keep coming back - definitely my number 1 spot for fancy cocktails.

This experience was not what I expected. There was only one issue with the night but it completely ruined it. The whole dining room was freezing. Myself and my girlfriend had to keep our coats on for the duration of the dinner, along with everyone at the tables around us. We weren't able to relax as a result of this. This is not what you expect when you go out for dinner, especially considering the fact that our bill was roughly €150. The dining room should not be beside an open stairs which goes directly up to a room which is outside.

The food and drink was nice and our waitress was very friendly but unfortunately, this was not enough to make up for how uncomfortable the experience was.

Nice place, although lamp lights would be better as hard to read ingredients of the cocktails due to small font and candles flickering so much. Very cold inside due to strong cold draft coming down open stairwell from upper level. Had to ask for blankets. Waitress kindly moved us to small fireplace when a table of customers had left but this still meant one person at our table remained cold. Staff were very nice and cocktails excellent. Bartender even accommodated request to reduce alcohol content in cocktails but kept flavor and taste. Would return but not in colder months of the year.

What a cool place! The atmosphere was very chic and relaxing. The cocktails were amazing! Our waitress new so much about the cocktails and would make recommendations based on what we liked. We had several small plates that were outstanding, a few less so. The fish and chips were the worst we had in Ireland but the bangers and mash were great! Would definitely return again.

What a place! The list of cocktails is so long, it took us ages to decide! The decor and ambiance are bar none, and the almost hidden entrance just adds to the allure. Great place for my birthday drinks, I highly recommend.

Amazing experience in this hidden gem. Brunch was amazing as were the cocktails and all at a reasonable price. We went fairly early in the day and had the floor to ourselves before it got busy which was good. Staff very friendly and helpful, would highly recommend and will return!

We had a table booked but had to wait 20min for it to be ready. We then waited another 20min at our table and we were never served. The service that we did receive upon arrival and when we asked to be served was very poor. We left without ordering because we were never given a chance. Waste of time.

I really love the place and was happy to take my friends from London to VCC. Cocktails were amazing, food good, overall service very nice. What we did not appreciate was the smell of cigarrettes coming from upstairs and the noise from there. It disturbs the entire experience a bit - on one hand it is a nice, vintage and dark cocktail bar, on the other hand - some sort of a pub upstairs.

Didn’t realise it would be such a dark space - heavy curtains drawn and a candle on every table. Would be gorgeous and cosy on a cold evening but for our 1.30 Saturday brunch it didn’t seem to suit the sunny day outside. But it was lovely to try it.

Awesome cocktails. As a vegan, I often find these types of cocktails problematic, but the bartenders accommodated me (most house cocktails use egg whites). I had several delicious, citrus based cocktails that really suited me.

Cute little speak easy that’s perfect for a more intimate date. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but that’s what you get for quirkier places in the capital! Service was great.
