Nice place, lovely ambience, cocktail selection is exquisite!
That about it to say. Now you have hour and a half allocated to your table inclusive of bringing you the check, moreover ordering stops after hour and 20 min. We wanted to order another one cocktail but we were told that time is up although getting waiter to our table for payment took another 20 min.
Probably won’t be coming back until we have some new regulations with Covid19 as it’s not worth it in my opinion, almost like speedy dating but speedy drinking cocktails🤣

The waiter and staff in general were all super nice and accommodating.
The food and cocktails were second to none.
Recommend the Bloody Mary (proper spicy) and the burger 👌🏻

The bartender was phenomenal but it was actually the person serving, who had a bad attitude which ruined the whole experience. She was rude, abrupt and only cared about the time allocation we had for our table. She also aggressively started rattling how as a covid rule; customers need to order food if they’re drinking alcohol; which is fair; however I informed her I was having non alcoholic drinks; to which she rudely interrupted me and repeated herself. I then told her I’d be leaving after my next drink, to which her response was “I’ll leave the menus here anyway...” it was as if she simply wasn’t listening nor did she care to be polite to a paying customer. In addition to that; as I got to half way through my drink she brought the bill and left it on my table. Absolutely terrible experience of a speakeasy.

The place was nice, the food was nice and the drinks were very nice. It was quite pricey for what you got. The most disappointing thing was at our table there was a leak from the roof and we got a little damp. Also some of the chairs needed work. Some were missing the springs and cushioning. This made it uncomfortable. Despite this the staff were nice and did seat is at another table

My friend and I loved our 1hr and 45min experience last Saturday evening in VCC. We shared a cheeseboard and risotto balls. Both very tasty and satisfying. I had 3 delicious cocktails and my friend enjoyed her red wine. The decor and ambience is just beautiful. Really, really relaxing and atmospheric. Spending time in the VCC feels like being in another time and place to Dublin 2020. It's fab. Service was friendly and our waitress Amy was really lovely.
I would just let people know that the cocktails are 12.50 each which might be above some people's budget - especially if they are going to have a few, which I did. I was happy to pay it though because it was my first night "out" in 5 months and they were very tasty.
Thanks VCC. I'll be bringing lots more friends to this hidden gem.

A fun place, with fantastic cocktails and decent food. I liked how the tables have been screened for Covid protection, but our evening was badly effected by being given a table on the upper floor, where smoking is allowed (this is legally dubious, the absence of a roof is not sufficient). Regular smokers coming up to have a quick puff right next to you is not a great way to enjoy an evening.

A large crowd at once and waiting on the stairs while people were coming down was a bit odd and very close contact for covid. I think that part could of been done a lot better as it is a health safety issue as people were cramped on the stairs, both side going in and out and back and front. People should be brought in individually, we were wearing masks but not a single other person was, bar the staff but they were on the stairs case. The staff memeber who came down to open the door was not wearing one and asked us to come back in ten minutes.

Totally underestimated what we were walking into since we had never heard of this bar. The team did so well sitting us down and we were never a second without either having a drink or one coming our way. If you’re not the biggest cocktail then you’ll definitely stay for the food (try the wings) it was amazing!
