    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.

    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

    I was excited to visit Dockum for my first time. The server was OK, the food was marginal (got the charcuterie board and it was very small and had no nuts or fruit). However, the reason for my 1 star rating was the manager. We had to ask the server to take drinks off that were charged at regular prices even though we ordered them at happy hour, and the happy hour drinks were on there twice also. He sent the manager over and she proceeded to tell our friends, and I quote, "Do not get grumpy with me!" when my friend was asking quite politely why the drinks were charged twice. I guess that manager had never heard the saying The customer is always right? And even if they are not, you should be polite! It will be the last time any of us go there. Sad, because I did love the ambiance.

    We went to Dockum for the first time to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and we had a great time! We loved the speakeasy feel and the ambience. The music was great and we really enjoyed watching the bartenders making the drinks that included smoke and/or fire. The drinks we ordered were amazing and not like anything we'd had before so that was fun. Next time we will try the food but I feel like I can already so that we'll be pleased with that as well. Definitely coming back and I think it was be great to come with a group of friends!

    The bartender and the waiter were beyond rude. My friend wanted a different drink. The bartender rolled her eyes, yell she already made another drink and slammed a container of juice down. 40 minutes later my friend received her drink and the waiter didn’t burn the orange and slid it around the rim he throw it in the drink as is. When the check came, the waiter handle my friend her check and tossed the pen on the table and rolled his eyes as he walked away. This is our second time to Dockum, we loved the place but that experience was unnecessary and uncalled for. I’m not sure if we will return.

    I went to have a drink with friends and was not disappointed! Our server KJ was absolutely amazing and very kind! She got us our waters right away and brought our drink as soon as they were ready and was sure to check up on us whenever we needed. Over all she was very attentive without being over bearing. Be sure to ask for her if you go! The drinks we had were so good! The bartenders there really know what they are doing! Each drink we had was so perfectly balanced and exactly what we were looking for. Our server also help us decide what we should get if we were having trouble deciding and I would definitely take their advice because the drinks we got were perfect for an evening out with friends in their wonderful speak-easy atmosphere! Definitely going to come again!

    Has changed a lot in the last year. More tables, brighter lights, less experience in the wait staff and the smell of incense was way more intense than the smell of when they make cocktails. It felt more like a bar than it ever has before
