Sehr stilvoll im 20ziger Jahre Look ... gedämpftes Licht mit lauschiger Musik und dazu tolle Cocktails. Welcher aber kein Schnäppchen sind.

It's a secret location in the centre of the city which makes it ( extra) special. The ambiance was just right and we loved the cocktails and foods. And excellent start for a night out.

Not enjoyable. They put 3 people next to us for a table meant for 2. My wife had to eat ( food which arrived cold) sitting sideways. When we complained they agreed the table was meant for 2 and our hostess went to speak with a manager. No manager arrived and no apology given. Told us we should have told them earlier the food was cold.

This place was amazing, loved that it was hidden away but once inside wow, just wow! Great decor, attentive staff and fantastic cocktails. A little pricey but we were there for a special occasion and it did not disappoint!

Tucked away behind a metal door at street level this quirky speakeasy bar is a throw back to prohibition American. Booking is essential. Upon arrival you are greeted and seated at your table in a dim candle lit room with drapes and soft furnishings. The atmosphere is the real selling point of this bar as it is truly unique to other Dublin bars. The cocktail list is extensive, if a little pricey as all of Dublin is - approx €12 per cocktail. It offers table service and the waiters knowledge of the menu is commendable as they will recommend a cocktail to you based on your preference. We did not dine here but the food smelled amazing. Overall a perfect start to the night

It was a very authentic speakeasy! We got there at 455 but they don’t officially open until 5 so plan on waiting if you get there right as they open! Food was amazing and the purple pearl tastes like juice, be careful.

Cocktails and Venue are great! Service was not great; we waited for 20 minutes to get the bill.
Food is very average, would just go there for the cocktails.

It was my boyfriends birthday so wanted a little drink so booked it was really hard to find as it’s hidden and just has VCC on the door a bouncer came and asked if we were looking for it and then just said up there and shut the door a little rude but other than that the staff were so lovely and we had a few gorgeous cocktails. Really cute and nice hidden place

Myself and my boyfriend booked a table for dinner and cocktails and we stuck at a tiny table by the door, which kept being left open so we were freezing.

We didn’t eat in the end as the table was so small and right on top of other people I think I may have elbowed the person next to me trying to eat a steak. We had one drink and left, we were very disappointed

We came from Denmark to Dublin for the weekend with some friends and one of the things we prioritised with our time was an evening at VVC. We wanted to show them what we had experienced a few years that we found unique an wonderful. This time we felt rushed and in the way. The service was not up to standard - there was no smile and we where seated next to the kitchen and we where asked to leave after we had our food. We had hoped to sit and have cocktails and tall for quite a while but chose to leave as the waitress told us that she needed to seat other guests ( we had dinner at 20.15) we where not early guest and therefore we had hoped to stay and spend our money at VVC. In stead we went elsewhere.
