The decor and ambience is nice but very expensive. We only stayed for one as it was €25 for 2 drinks. The smoking terrace is nice area for smokers and it's just jazzy cocktail music that could be improved on too.

Hi I've been similar unique cocktail establishment in places like Amsterdam etc. My only criticism was that the staff weren't the most friendly or helpful as some of the other's I have experienced.
Great venue, great cocktails though.

A very unusual place, with a feeling of a bygone era. An amazing menu of cocktails to suit all tastes, with plenty of choice for those wanting to try something different.

We went on a date night as a treat for my wife. We booked for a meal, and arrived early to have a pre-meal drink. Service was initially very good, with attentive staff. The meal was average, although the venue is known for its cocktails rather than its food, so we were happy with what we got. As more customers arrived, service levels dropped as the staff were unable to mange the number of guests. In the end, and rather than wait for the service which wasn’t coming our way, we paid and left after our meal. You missed the sale of two desserts and two more cocktails.

I would recommend this place for cocktails, but be prepared to wait if it’s busy.

Terrible service, would not recommend this place at all. The staff gave us the bill when we hadn’t finished our first drink. The manager was surprisingly rude when my friend complained about the waiter. I will never go back.

Went in for light bites and a couple of cocktails with the girls. Annmarie who served us was a star and the club is very lucky to have her. Light bites were fab but a tad bit pricey and really enjoyed the cocktails.

The vintage cocktail club is a nice little place to go for a romantic drink. I wouldn't over rate this place. The service was incredibly slow, granted they're making specialty cocktails there was only one mixologist on the bar. The wait even though told to arrive at 10:30 (having been to previous speakeasies) know punctuality is key, to which first we were told the staircase is too busy and to wait outside, then we were moved up and down the stairway like live cattle with hostesses not knowing which floor we were booked on. Once we got into the bar, as in other speakeasies I like to have the mixologist do his job and recommend a drink from things I like to drink (not to Big of a reccomendation). After telling the waitress drinks I enjoy, I received a whisky on the rocks with a dash of ginger in it for the total of €13 all in all it was quite a let down. Its a nice space and cosy little romantic place to go with the lady or man friend. But I wouldn't return to this bar as there was so many other options even just across the street with live music and better prices.

Really an amazing place if you’re looking for a cute bar with unique cocktails and an amazing ambience! The variety of the drinks was extensive and it was hard to choose. The food was basic not bad but not great however you’re not there for the food! Really loved the selection of absinthe cocktails as well as the great service and recommendations! Sabina was an amazing waitress and provided good suggestions. Definitely a must see in Dublin!

Lovely ambiance and service was reasonable (although appeared to be one bar person on so a little slow for cocktail orders). Food was not great - had pork belly as a starter which was a huge portion and could be smaller for a starter. Had chicken for main which was ok. I would return again but just for drinks.

We did not eat at the VCC, we only went for drinks which were outstanding. The cocktail menu is extensive and also provides an explanation of the time when the cocktails originated. Expensive, 12 euros for each drink, but we loved the whole experience.

Visited Dublin for a few days with my partner, we enjoy the concept secret bars and spotted this one online so decided to give it a go. We were able to see our cocktails being made as we had bar seating, the bar tender was outstanding- making amazing cocktails with such speed and precision, and they tasted incredible! The cocktail menu had over 70 options, each of which the mixologist knew by heart. Would definitely reccomend the vintage cocktail club to anybody who appreciates a really good cocktail.

My third time visiting VCC. I've been there on dates before but went with my boyfriend and sister this time around for a few cocktails. We went on a Sunday night so it was more of a chilled atmosphere which was nice. Decor and feel of the place is always quite cosy and cocktails are lovely. Service was a little slow this time- I'd imagine they had less staff on for a Sunday night. Will be back again to try the food. Recommend for a romantic date night.

Overall we had a good time as the cocktails were lovely. But we had a exyrenely rude encounter with the hostess at the end of the night.

I had booked a table for 7.45 which we arrived for on time. And at 10.15 pm we received a round of cocktails to be told that they were gonna give us the bill as they needed the table by for the next booking (which was the first we had heard of).

And at 10.25 we had the hostess approach us and rudely say that we needed to leave as the next booking had arrived, although we still had half of our drinks left. She did not ask was it okay or explain it to us, she just tild us we had to leave then walked away. She gave us no opportunity to discuss and I felt it was extremely inappropriate.

From the moment you walk up to the building, you know this is going to be a unique experience. The first floor dining room is the best location for a romantic date or special occasion. Request the second floor dining room for a more social engagement. The cocktail menu is extensive and incredibly well curated. The small plates are larger than expected and utilize many local ingredients. For a romantic occasion, expect to use your entire 2 1/2 hour reservation time slot.
