    We really enjoyed the speakeasy theme including the decor and servers’ era-appropriate outfits. They were playing soft 1920’s-style music when we first arrived at 6:45, but then a live duet started playing soft rock and it kinda ruined the ambience. We couldn’t hear each other anymore because of the volume of the music. Dockum mgt, if you’re reading this, please do away with the live music. It only detracts from the experience. Otherwise it was great!

    First timers and we loved the ambiance of the place. Loved the period/era music that was playing when we got there. Would have preferred not to have the musician that set up and played...not that she wasn't good, but loved the vibe the original music gave. We didn't eat so I couldn't really rate the food, but the steaks the people next to us had look scrimptious! Overall wonderful experience...just wish the drinks were a little more affordable.

    Décor and ambiance was definitely cool and we enjoyed the live performance that evening, but the drinks (at least the ones we ordered) were not what we expected at all, especially given the info that they were "exquisitely crafted and house-made". We were in no hurry so we expected it to take a little while, but servers were not attentive at all. We maybe sat for 10 minutes before we even got waters, and then after we ordered our drinks, she came back by 15 minutes later and asked if we were ready to order. Way over-hyped in our opinion for a 'sophisticated speakeasy'

    Love this place. Though I Have to say the live music was not as enjoyable as it has been in the past. Way too lots and I would have preferred instrumental only-his skills in the guitar were phenomenal.

    We came after a concert at I trust and we're so disappointed to find the kitchen closed at 11. This is too early on a Saturday night. Waiter lost out on serious tips as we drank one drink and left. Had there been food we would have stayed and drank a lot more.

    Dockum continues to be one of our favorite venues when visiting Wichita due to its unique ambiance, drink & bite offerings, and wonderful non-disruptive live music when scheduled. Kate (server) was attentive, provided delicious recommendations and perfect order phasing.

    It’s always awesome going to dockum, I’ve never had a bad time or a bad drink there. A little pricey, but for special occasions, very worth it! Fair warning, ask for prices on anything single malt first!

    The vault is pretty cool and secluded. The seating would have been better if we had been at a table instead for the occasion. There really wasn’t a place to put appetizers or our drinks and we ended up leaving early because we were hungry and it was uncomfortable for our group. Otherwise it was a nice experience.

    We really wanted to sit at the bar but the website said that was first come first served, so we reserved a table for when the place opened just in case. We got there 20 mins early (before it opened) and were the first ones in. But the hostess said the bar was reserved… She tried explaining why the bar was reserved when the website said it couldn’t be reserved but it didn’t make any sense to me, and our waitress gave us a different explanation. After questioning further, we were eventually allowed to a it at the bar. The bartenders were awesome, and had more bartending knowledge than any others I’ve met anywhere else. Sitting at the bar I learned so much, and got to see them make the drinks with smoke and fire. It definitely made the experience unique.

    Phone number on Google does not work. Door person was rude about how we had to split up reservations because we could not make a reservation big enough on line to accommodate our entire party since the phone number provided was not working. Apparently you have to call the restaurant upstairs to make a large group reservations. They need to update their Google number.

    Everything was wonderful. Wasn't too impressed with the service. Server was very quiet and shy. Not very knowledgeable on the menu. For the price I think she should have been more energetic and at least help with suggestions with new comers. But all in all a great fun date place
