    Services was very slow and the cocktails were very expensive for what they were!! We Arrived at 10pm and were left standing outside for 15 minutes. Our order was taken at 1045, it was 11pm before our first drink came. Overall a very disappointing experience.

    Convoluted entry. Walked up a flight of stairs just to be walked down another flight. Seated directly next to the toilet door so every time someone went through the door the smell of toilet permeated our nose. Had no food, one drink which was definitely decent. It just wasn’t worth any of the hassle or hype.

    Love the whole concept. They offer virgin cocktails for 5. 50€. Just ask your server for "something sweet sour or fruity" and they'll make you a magical potion. The only thing that was not for me (totally personal and the rest of the group felt looked after and the opposite of what I felt) was the staff asking if we wanted another round while still barely halfway through the drinks. I understand that they need to push drinks but we got asked 6 times in under 10 mins. I felt super pressured even though we were the last sitting slot and they didn't need the table. Overall lovely and will come back to try the food.

    We had such a great experience at the VCC. Our cocktail specialist Laura was great and she chose all the cocktails for us. She recommended cocktails to us throughout the night and we were very impressed with her pairing skills as she managed to match our taste. The cocktail maker Roge was also incredible as he made all the cocktails with perfection.

    Dublin’s best kept secret! I’d like to say this place is rubbish and you shouldn’t go, just to keep it a secret. However, that would be so unfair. You have to go, it’s great! The venue is delightful, the food is delicious, and there are a lot of cocktails to choose from. Our waitress, Anne-Marie was very friendly and was helpful with our menu choices. If I’m ever in Dublin again I will definitely be booking again!

    Only there for drinks, but Opentable requires a food rating to proceed. The drinks, however, were excellent. There is a lengthy drinks list, a booklet really, with cocktails grouped by historic period. We had two rounds of four, and each of the eight drinks was well crafted and interestingly and appropriately presented. The vibe is "speakeasy" and the entrance requires attention to find, but that is part of the fun.

    We were visiting Dublin and read about VCC and thought it sounded like fun. After waiting twenty minutes in the rain, we were seated on the ground floor by the loo. I didn’t find the ambiance anything special at all…unless you like dark, dingy and crowded. I’ve been to actual speakeasy clubs in Europe and if that’s what they were aiming for, they really missed the mark. Further, my cocktail was not even good!

    Vintage Cocktail ClubResponded on June 13, 2022

    Hi Janet Its disappointing to hear such negative comments. Having reviewed our CCTV from your visit i cant see any evidence of you waiting outside in the rain, also the table you were sitting at is on the opposite side of the room to the toilet door, you were seated beside our kitchen which is separated from tables with a heavy curtain. The floor where you were seated only holds 20 guests, seated and has just been fully refurbished so we feel a bit let down by the dingy and crowded comments. VCC
