The VNYL, located downtown is a lifestyle space which has been designed to showcase a grouping of influences from 1970's interior design, fashion, art, music and attitude.

We have created a food and beverage program which showcases innovation and creativity. The cuisine takes inspiration from Californian styles, whilst our beverage program is designed to bring a superior standard of quality to a larger audience. Using only premium and fresh ingredients across both programs, we go to extra lengths to deliver a better quality product.
The seafood on our menu is purchased locally from fully sustainable sources. Our fruits, garnishes and the flavours in our cocktails have been prepared in-house from fresh produce daily

The interior design objective was to create a space which feels residential, while still having the functionality to be commercial. Every piece of furniture has been custom designed for The VNYL, and manufactured in Ireland.

Possibly the worst place I have ever been! Terrible service and it was not even busy.

I went for dinner with a friend at 7:45 PM when there were only four tables occupied in the entire restaurant. We were welcomed nicely and the order was taken promptly. We ordered the steak and burger and an extra side of fries. The steak arrived about 35 minutes later. But the burger was not served with the other entrée. My friend and I decided to share the steak and when we finished we kept waiting for the burger to arrive. The burger took another 15 minutes after we had finished the first entrée. I decided to order some drinks. The drinks were served wants the burger arrived later. I got a glass that was dirty and had lipstick stains! This was really gross. For restaurant which didn't have too much traffic at the time the lack of good service really spoil the mood. The extra order of fries were never served.
The ambience was nice and the music was lively. The food was actually quite decent for a lounge. But the service was really bad by the wait staff. They should really learn how to serve the two entrées together for a party of two. I don't think I'll be going there again.

Such a huge disappointment. Even with a reservation, we had to wait a half hour for our table at 9pm on a Wednesday. They had a private event on each floor, and they all were very loud and obnoxious. I understand this is more of a"club" now, so stop offering dinner reservations at that hour. Because of these private events, seating was limited. We got seated at a coffee table... yes, a coffee table. For dinner.

Sadly we ended up leaving before even having a server come up to us. I could not eat dinner sitting at a coffee table. Very disappointing.

I will say, though, the host was very friendly and we enjoyed talking to her while we waited for her table. Obviously this all wasn't her fault.

If looking for a party atmosphere, Sunday night is not the night to go.

Fun interesting place, good food, great drinks, excellent service, beautiful decor (an ode to seventies design). Closer to a club than a restaurant but definitely fits into the clubsteraunt oeuvre.

They do not always honor dinner reservations at the door, so not your best bet if you want to eat because the doormen are disorganized.

Nice decor and ambiance. However, overpriced with lacking service.
Went to watch game w brunch. Perhaps better for a night spot.
