Absolutely loved the place, the cocktails are fantastic, the staff were excellent and very pleasant, the fact that it is so private is what I loved the most, definitely a must see!

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.

Cocktails were lovely and the overall vibe was great.
Kindly asked the waitress if we could move inside as I couldn’t be around the level of smoke that was outside and she ignored our request and never came back with a yes or no. We had to leave after only an hour due to this which was a pity cause I was really enjoying myself.

This was diner and drinks for 4 on a Saturday night and was just PERFECT! From the greeting we got, the quality of the service, the food and the drinks. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We’d definitely go back.

Amazing bar/restaurant.
So pleased we booked this before we arrived to guarantee our table.
Everything was amazing. The cocktails were some of the best we’ve had and the food! Mouth watering!
Our waitress was excellent and even got a new bar to go to in Amsterdam thanks to her recommendation.
Thanks everyone! Made our weekend!

A marvelous hideaway close to Temple Bar, bit with class and quality.
Hard to find and you will need directions.
Book in advance.

Unfortunately there was a group of people present who did not grasp the concept of a speak easy... Staff is then in a difficult situation but should make a point that this might not be the place to be if you want to yell and be loud. Hoped for that in order to enjoy the unique value vcc usually has

We came here for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. The drinks were exceptional - the only downside was deciding between them all - and how much money you spend when you can't!

Food was nice but nothing special. Cocktails were way over priced and the cocktail list was taken away as soon as we ordered so no chance to browse for next one. Expected some sort of entertainment but there was nothing. For the price we paid isn’t value for money.

Where we were sitting was at the bottom of the stairs below the smoking area and it was really cold. This is something that could be improved. Otherwise all was well.

We did not have food but there was not a n/a option so just rated 3 stars mid. The bar tender was amazing and knew his stuff. Would recommend telling him what you like

Good food and cocktails. Was a last minute booking bit turned out well. Very cramped though with next table right beside us. A couple left because of the close proximity.

I really liked the venue and the cocktails and the staff were very friendly. My only criticism is apparently they call you to confirm your reservation which I don't have a problem with however my reservation was for 20:30. From 19.30 to 20:15 I was at a play and my phone was switched off. After the play I went directly to the VCC for 20:30 and was told that my reservation had been cancelled as they had called me at 21:00 to confirm the reservation and couldn't get hold of me. They did do their best to find me a replacement table and it didn't take long but if they confirmation is that critical it should be mentioned at the time of booking or a call made earlier in the day to confirm the reservation.

I adore the vintage cocktail club the drinks and atmosphere are so different to anywhere else in Dublin. Saturday was my first time getting food there, unfortunately I was underwhelmed and felt the food was very much over priced for what was served. Portion size was tiny and we left feeling hungry. I wouldn't hesitate to go back for drinks though as they never disappoint

Our host was very welcoming and gave us advice on where to go next which was a perfect recommendation. She was really lovely and the drinks were really yummy. The music was too loud though but I was sat directly underneath it.

This place is something else. From the minute you ascend up the stairs adorned with that old school shabby-chic carpet you know your in for something different. This place offers one of the best cocktail and food experiences I have ever had, paired with an absolute dote of a server. She was warm, comforting, thoroughly helpful and just added to the whole experience. She give the feel that you had known her for years. I was highly highly impressed! Thanks VCC!

Food is in microscoping ammount for the price u pay. For example 3 shrimps in souce in tiny bowl for almost 13 euro (!?).

It is place only for drink I guess.

Drinks are amazing. Huuuuge ammount of different drinks.

Very cosy and comfi. Brilliant place for date.

Lovely venue. Food was good but limited choices on menu and expensive. Felt food was overpriced. Would have liked to have been seated in the main restaurant not in the basement especially as I had made the booking 2 months in advance. Drinks were very good and atmosphere was good. Friendly staff and very efficient.
