It a great and different experience, it a hidden gem in the Temple bar area. We were sitting beside the bar s noise level was moderate due to bartender mixing cocktails. Food portions are small but tasty. Overall great service and lovely interior.

This is my second visit here and I love it! First time with friends and second with my parents. So enjoyable! Atmosphere was lovely, it was quiet yet had a great vibe bout the place. There is also a smoking area upstairs if needed which is very cool.
The staff were helpful and knowledgable about food and cocktail recommendations. The VCC is a definite must see in Dublin. We were made to feel very welcome! Thank you.

The cocktails are just amazing, the ambiance is perfect and the staff were incredibly nice. I thought their antipasti board was a little disappointing but the Parmesan fries were great. Got some cocktail recommendations and it was spot on. Definitely the spot to go for quality drinks, dates or special romantic occasions.

Drinks were 2nd to none. Only complaint is that my reservation was given away to someone who saw my name on the list and said they were me. The host ended up giving us a seat at the bar instead of a table.

Great venue although a little hard to find. Some of our party had to wait 10 mins before they were let in. Good choice of cocktails but service was very slow. Only one bar man on duty. Waiter was very pleasant but we thought our drinks would never come.

if you blink you will miss the little VCC on the black door. Once you get checked in, the area is cozy, the drinks are numerous and spot on, the food is delicious. If the Ireland pubs are too noisy, come here for a respite.

Cocktail club with an Speakeasy feeling. The bartenders are true artisans and will blow your mind with the club's signature concoctions. Try the Falls Road Flip and the Dirty Wizard; you'll thank me later. The space is beautiful, intimate, the music is on point. A true hidden gem of Dublin.

The drink menu was like a novel—totally overwhelming but everything looked absolutely divine. Ordered four drinks and all were impeccable and perfectly balanced. The ambience was straight out of a sexy Parisian boudoir. Music was on point and crowd was casual but classy—don’t bring the pub crawl crew this way. I savored this bougie break from the chaos of temple bar area. 10/10 recommend if you’re a cocktail fiend like me.

Really nice place for cocktails. The food was good but was pretty expensive for what we got, especially the vegetarian platter. I really liked the way it's made and how from outside you wouldn't guess what it's like but the tables are too close to each other which makes it too loud and the intimacy of the place is altered by that fact. But overall a good experience with a wonderful decor.

Overpriced and impressed with itself. Cocktails are nothing amazing but deep list to chose from. Warm appetizers were served cold. Service was slow, very slow and snobby. Lower level was nothing special. Skip it.

Didn’t eat any food. Great cocktails and service. Great experience, only comment would be re the bouncer who didn’t believe we had a reservation at first. Would be nice if he had a list of bookings to refer to rather than doubting customers. Bartender was absolutely lovely, offered us a complimentary drink for accidentally spraying me when shaking cocktails. I will definitely come back.

The food and drinks were fantastic. The service was terrible. We left right after another table couldn’t get their order taken. Then we had to get the check from the seaters on our way out. One waitress was doing all she could, unfortunately ours was not.

Waited 15 mins for first round of drinks after server took 10 mins to greet us. Server made no recommendations on food or drinks, basically an order taker. Food came out cold but the server came back to check in 20 mins later so it was too late to send it back. We ordered another round of drinks which then we waved down another server to check on as it had been another 15 mins and come to find out our server never put the order in. Terrible experience and highly overrated. When paying around 15 euro a drink, you expect more.

“Speakeasy” type restaurant. Great for special occasions. Art Deco decorations. You can have drinks from its extensive cocktail menu or have dinner. Definitely an experience restaurant!
