Visited on Sunday 18/02/18 during a weekend away with a friend. Despite initially getting lost we made it for lunch, the pamesan chips and chocolate cake were amazing. The cocktails were spectacular and could not believe the amount of choice on the menu! All of them were delicious and the cost was beyond reasonable for the quality of them.
We loved every minute and safe to say that it made our trip, we will definitely be coming back!
Also have to say, the staff were amazing with excellent knowledge, Emily and Ann-Marie made it worth being there!
We will see you again when we're back in Dublin

Having booked a table two weeks in advance, we were told both via email and phone that we mustn’t be late. We turned up at 4.55 for a 5pm table, only to be sat upstairs in the outdoor area and forgotten about til 5.20pm, without any offer of a drink or any communication during the wait! We were ignored until we finally had to approach the waitress to remind her we were there. Once we were sat, the waitress who served us (different person to previously mentioned) was attentive and friendly. cocktails were fabulous and the atmosphere was cosy and relaxed. Shame about the shocking service at the start!

What a super night. The service is A+, the staff are so invested in your satisfaction and genuinely know their stuff when it comes to helping you choose from the huge list of cocktails.
The food was delicious and the whiskey sour was one of the best I've tried! Love the look and feel of this place!

After booking in advanced we where disappointed to be place right beside the kitchen window and entrance. It was very bright and busy with people in and out. We asked to moved as the place was mostly empty. However they stated that the other tables are booked in advance and if they don't turn up you could have those tables. Which I couldn't understand as we had booked in advanced and arrived on time. In the end we did get moved but it just tainted the night for us.

We arrived at 3.30 to discover that we had no booking or table, then it was discovered that the booking was cancelled, which I don't know how either occurred as I booked it myself for me and my sister who was visiting from abroad. I had not seen her in months and wanted to do something special. The host made no apologies and was quite quiet and rude. We were seated upstairs in the smoking area and neither of us smoke, we wanted brunch and were told we had to wait until change of menu at five. It clearly states on the website that brunch is served til 4pm. After stating this we were reluctantly given menus. We asked to be moved downstairs when a table became free. The hostess just at me and said there was none when I saw three free walking up the stairs. The food itself was good, the cocktails were amazing and the second waitress was nice. While eating in the smoke filled room the hostess came back and told us we were taking up two tables and to move over. Two plates would not fit on the table , I thought I was going to have to eat it on my knee, when I said hang on a minute there have been many things not right since we arrived and I am not paying to eat my food on my lap, while I felt I had to apologise to the couple who were waiting to be seated but no tables were left! The host did not look at us or apologise for the suggestion at all. We felt like an inconvenience and paid 70 euro for the hour experience. Really disappointing VCC I have been here frequently since opening and this treatment of customers I have never experienced before. My sister and I did not have the afternoon we had planned. Peruke and Periwig ended our evening fabulously had a much better service and experience following this terrible brunch. I will not be returning. I don't normally write reviews but I feel very strongly about this experience.

We were booked in for 5pm but arrived 20 mins late but still accommodated. Not very busy on the level we were on but it was early. I'm sure VCC is a place I could love to relax in and enjoy more of their cocktails but the place was so cold that once we finished our meal and cocktail each we had to leave. Having to put coat on half way through meal we really couldn't stay any longer. Staff had brought out fan heaters immediately prior to our departure, and not on our request, but it was too late for us then. Would consider visiting again as I like that style.

Over rated and Over Priced! Slow service too dark decor left little to be desired no entertainment beyond disappointing considering the hype!!! And the waitress got our bill wrong. Majority of cocktails were ice and of all of u one person enjoyed them out of 8! POOR EFFORT!

A lovely hidden speakeasy in the bustling Temple Bar area of Dublin. The setting and the ambience is what has this place really going. All the tables were occupied at our visit, with guests knocking on the door wanting to be let in all throughout the evening. We really enjoyed the custom cocktails which were both fun, interesting and tasted so well! The food was a bit of a downer, it was bland and not really imaginative. On our next visit, we will not order food.

An amazing place, once you get through the door. I called it the dodgy door as the friend that I was with looked a little apprehensive before entering. Once inside the place is a great experience. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the cocktails and the food was excellent.
A great experience!

This was my second visit and I couldn't wait to return. We just fell in love with one of their signature cocktails, 'The Dirty Wizard ', so couldn't wait to have it again.
We arrived a bit later so it was cosy and warm at eight pm. We didn't order food this time but the platter we had before was devine to share.
Again TVCC didn't fail to impress. Such a comfortable cosy venue with cocktails to savour.
Looking forward to going back again with friends soon.

We absolutely love the vcc, this was our 6th time and it never disappoints. The dirty wizard’s are thee best cocktail I’ve ever tasted. The cocktails can be pricey however you’re in the most cosy lush red velvet setting it’s just a fantastic experience. You would never know you’re in the heart of Dublin never mind in the heart of temple bar area where it can be quite noisy at times. The only issue I found this time round was that the service was pretty slow. I had to try to get the waiters attention multiple times to order more drinks. We will definitely return, we love it every time we visit Dublin we always book vcc for pre-cocktails.

Myself and some friends met here for some cocktails on Saturday evening. As always the service was great. The cocktails were delicious. It’s not cheap but as an occasional treat it’s great. It’s cosy and you can hear yourself think so great for chats. A firm favourite
