Awesome atmosphere, and very tasty drinks. It does take a while to get served even with the slower crowd. However, server seemed to have too many tables, very pleasant though.

Dochum is a favorite. Having to do distancing and removal of furniture does change it’s coziness. No fault of yours.
Burgers were good. The charcuterie board is my favorite.

I have been here before and was a bit disappointed in the visit. I reserved this for a five year anniversary (which I added to my notes). At arrival, we had to wait in the landing area for almost 15 minutes. We knocked and waited with other frustrated visitors. The sign said "please wait to be seated". Finally someone came form the stairwell and asked all of us (four couples) if we had been helped and we said no. He went in and came back and flipped the sign around to say "please seat yourself". No apologies and then a girl with an iPad came and she was very rushed and ruined the entire arrival experience. She sat us on a couch (when I reserved a table). I asked to be moved so she sat us at a table (later than our reservation time) and instead of any welcoming message she started by saying "This table is reserved for 10 PM so you will need leave by then." What about my reservation? It was very odd and then she returned only a minute later asking if we knew what we wanted (rushed again). Your single bathroom had a toilet leak and there was water all over the floor. It got mopped up once during our three hours there. We made sure to leave by 10 PM for the other reservation. It was just very disappointing because it is not the experience I am used to there and some guest experience training should be revisited. We had to go to another bar to revitalize our anniversary memory so it wouldn't be so negative.

We have been here several times, with big groups as well as just the two of us, and it's fantastic every time. The bartenders are true masters of their craft. The staff are all super inviting, and the other patrons are generally the same which makes the overall environment warm and friendly while also being quiet and intimate. We came here the night of our wedding for a quick night cap and the staff made our already special night just that extra bit better. I would highly recommend Dokum for any occasion!!!

We had a fabulous time. The decor and ambiance was amazing. The drinks were wonderful and unique. Service was fantastic, our waitress answered questions, checked back every so often, and was not obtrusive nor absent to long. Could not have asked for a more perfect night out.

everything about it was intentional and well-done. music, lighting, mood.. way cooler than anything else in Wichita and I was born and raised here. made an rsvp with OpenTable and everything went perfectly. so nice to just relax and talk on our date. and we got one of the sofa seats which are costly and super comfortable. very cool place and plan on going back soon.

We didn’t eat so I can’t rate the food. Our service was kind of slow. We were in a small room kind of off on our own and I feel like we got forgotten about at one point. Otherwise everything was awesome.

I’ve been to dockems before and decided to go for my birthday. The waitress was really nice but the door man was rude to me and my guests. The door man wasn’t being accommodating and instead complained that I was ruining his other reservations when I was unexpectedly having one additional guest show up. I brushed him off and tried not to stir trouble but it ruined a lot of my birthday fun. Two of my guests I heard who showed up after us said that he got in a tiff with them too and they sat with us for five minutes and unexpectedly left. I heard they were so mad at the door man it ruined their experience so they left promptly. I’m not sure what they argued about but I heard he was difficult with allowing them to come inside even though they were under my reservation and he threatened to force them to leave. I’ve always liked the establishment and the drinks at dockems but this particular employee will be bad for business if multiple guests are having similar negative experiences.

We were seated right away (with reservation) and with an attentive waitress, but not overbearing. The atmosphere gives the speakeasy feel and the drinks are crafted to perfection.

Knock hard!! Once u get to the basement make sure u knock hard! I thought I was going to have to boot the door as if I was the ATF busting the place. It was amazing, got my beautiful girlfriend in a dress and we headed down. The drinks were awesome. Such a great personal place to hangout. Super bummed we forgot the souvenir bottle from my drink. We didn’t get very many pics either .. so guess what? We going back... highly recommend.

Not good service. First she brought a bottle of wine to our table and never opened the bottle. Every place I have been to they open the bottle at the table and have you try a Tate before fully enjoying the bottle. Then she really didn’t come back until she gave us the check. Then she overcharges is for the bottle by 10$. Prob won’t be back

Really cool little speak easy club in the basement of a swanky hotel. So glad Wichita has a place like this. Cool ambiance, Unique and tasty drink menu. Great service. Check it out. And if you drink one too many - get a room. They’re really nice.

We went there for handcrafted cocktails and some great ambience and some nice live music. We loved The ambience and my first cocktail came out on satisfactory. Immediately took it away and were so kind and friendly about giving me other options and your willingness to please was very much appreciated. We will definitely go back. I love the vibe of the whole place.
