Lovely overall. I was excited to go mainly for the decor and ambiance. I booked it two weeks in advance and would have expected to have been seated somewhere other than the basement because of this. I would have loved to be in the lovely part

Everything was great! We were able to request seating in any level and friendly staff! The only thing I didn't like was the 2 hour limit. It's understandable why, but perhaps add another hour to it to maximize the experience since planning and booking can get tight.

Went for cocktails only. I’ve been to the VCC before and I loved every minute of it. I was really disappointed this time. So much so that I’m not sure I will be back.

When we arrived, admittedly a few minutes late, we were told at the door downstairs that we were being moved from table 21 to table 15 and to remember and tell the staff member upstairs. The lady in question even indicated same to us on her tablet. At the door upstairs, I advised, as requested, that we were told table 15. The lady upstairs was clearly confused and ran downstairs to check and I clearly heard the first staff member say to her that she had told us it was table 21. I reiterated that this was not the case. I can understand if someone makes a mistake but at least have the decency to admit to it and not to blame your incoming customers when they are within earshot. The whole situation was completely unnecessary and ridiculous.

The cocktails that we did receive were delicious as always. However, the service was exceptionally slow. When we were waiting for our second cocktail, we were told it was last orders and asked if we wished to order something else. When we indicated that we did wish to order 20 minutes before our sitting was to end, Ann Marie advised us that she didn’t think it was a good idea as we might not have the time to finish as they needed the table back. In the end, we decided not to bother.

All in all, it was not a relaxing or pleasant experience at all and really put a dampener on the rest of our night.

Hi Shella, Apologies for the confusion at the door, we have very new staff that are trying their best in their new roles. All sittings are 2 hours long, unfortunately we cant offer late arrivals more time as that would be unfair to the guests that have the table booked after you. We do last orders 30 minutes before the end of every sitting this is to ensure our guests have plenty of time to enjoy last drinks and pay with zero stress before leaving. Thank you, VCC Team

Me: single woman traveling for work to Dublin and looking for a safe and great cocktail place with good food to relax for the day. They: VCC - amazing ambiance with a long list of creations and with great recommendations provided by Annemarie. I tried the 2 signature cocktails Southern Passion (sweet sour) and Purple Pearl (sweet) - for food I had wings and Parmezan fries. Everything was delicious and I would definitely return and recommend this place in Dublin. Make sure you make reservations to not disappoint yourself as there is a limit in capacity due to the current restrictions. Absolutely amazing place!

To be honest this experience was a little disappointing. We were booked in for 19:15 and arrived early to be met with a crowd of other people also waiting to be let in. We queued to get in which meant it was about 19:30 by the time we were seated and looking at the menu. Despite being at the bar at 19:15 we didn’t get our drinks until 19:55 and we had only finished those drinks when we were asked for last orders and told we would need to leave soon. We got another drink each which again took a while to arrive, as they were making all the drinks for everyone, which meant that we had only a few minutes to finish them before we had to go. The drinks themselves were lovely and the staff all seemed very nice. There was a great atmosphere and I’m sure we would have had a much better experience if it hadn’t all felt so rushed. I would maybe recommend going on a less busy day during the week.

We arrived for our booking at 7.02pm. The table was booked for 7.15pm and the lady asked us to stand outside in the cold and wait the 13 minutes. I understand there are Covid restrictions in place, but the restaurant was basically empty inside. She then hurried us out of the place at 9.15pm on the dot, after we left a generous tip. The venue lacked atmosphere and we had to ask for drinks each round. Unfortunately we won’t be back.

Vintage Cocktail Club

Hi Anonymous, You booked in for the 7.15 - 9.15 sitting, you were sat at 7.15 as per your reservation. Unfortunately we cant sit early arrivals when there is still guests from the previous sitting finishing up on the table, hence you being 'hurried' off the table at the end of your reservation at 9.15. We give 15 minutes between every sitting to fully sanitise all Tables, Menu's and Touch points etc before bringing new guests to tables, this is why the venue appeared empty to you. VCC Team

Everything was excellent but our experience started
Stressfully because the directions were quite hard to follow. We were 15 minutes late because the directions were inaccurate and the door was not clearly marked so we kept wandering. I understand they’re attempting to be understated but with that comes the requirement to have very accurate location instructions. Fortunately out stress faded quickly with great service, food and drink in a unique atmosphere.
