    A really lovely speakeasy! The service is next to none. Such personable, professional staff who know their drinks and food so we'll. Excellent ambiance and a brilliant date spot. Food is delicious although that little bit pricey. Worth it.

    Everything was really well from the service to food and drinks. I'm really unhappy as I specifically mentioned that it's my partners bday and please put a note to get a candle on dessert when we order it. I was disappointed that the small gesture was not taken care of.

    Vintage Cocktail ClubResponded 3 days agoHi Prati, Thank you for the positive feedback. So sorry we missed your note on the birthday, we do try our best to view all notes on bookings, on this occasion we missed yours. Do let us know if you're dropping back in and we'll get you a drink on us, cheers, VCC Team

    Annmarie & her colleague (forgot her name 🙈) looked after us so well! I’m 36 weeks pregnant so going out for dinner can we a bit of a challenge, but the VCC was so comfortable and Annmarie and her colleague recommended such lovely virgin cocktails. We were very impressed to find such a great place hidden in Dublin’s temple bar area. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a lovely evening!

    It was so small It felt like we were sitting at the same table as the neighbours, very hot, so muchch noise, the truffle fries tasted chemical when you expect something subtle. They had us going upstairs then downstairs, but we eventually sat next to a door which gave to the street, just by the entrance... Cocktail were good but the menu is waaaaay too long and you can barely read it (candles...).overrated, Not going back there.

    Vintage Cocktail ClubResponded 3 days agoHi Anonymous, Thank you for the feedback. Yes, we are an intimate & candle lit venue set over 3 floors with stairs to each, apologies if this wasn't to your liking but thank you for dropping by. cheers, VCC team

    We had a great time! With a group of seven at a relatively small restaurant I wasn’t sure how they would accommodate but they nailed it! We had a great area and the service was impeccable. Our waitress was so sweet (wish I remembered her name to give a shout-out!) and the cocktails were amazing! Everyone loved their drinks- the cocktails and the ambiance made it a night to remember. Last time I was here was in 2016 and it’s only gotten better!

    We did not get food at VCC but we did arrive for drinks which was the highlight of the evening, the ambiance and atmosphere was fantastic but the venue did get a bit noisy halfway through our stay which made it a bit difficult to sustain a conversation. Otherwise it was phenomenal.

    Pretentious place. Over rated. Didn’t have food. Far nicer and quirkier places around.

    Vintage Cocktail ClubResponded on September 23, 2022Hi Dawn, We're disappointed with your words here and over on Trip advisor, albeit deleted now so thank you for that. As explained to you on arrival, while we always do our best to accommodate early arrivals we cant physically sit guests in seats that are already occupied. We're sorry you had to que but you were seated on time and in the end spent very little time with us to leave such a scathing review. We honestly hope you had a good night after, VCC Team

    The food was very good. I highly recommend the shrimp dish. The drinks were pretty divine, very good. What I didn't like was my birthday party of 4 being asked to leave because of the two hour time limit when the place was empty and we were still ordering. Our bill was 300 euros and we would've spent more if we were allowed. That was lame and left a taste of pretentious on my tongue.

    Vintage Cocktail ClubResponded 3 days agoThank you for the positive feedback on the food and drinks. Just a quick note on your comments on the time limit. All our sittings are 2 hours, we only require the table back when its booked again for the next sitting. On your visit all tables were booked for all 3 sittings. At the end of the sitting with all guests leaving at the same time, the room can of course appear empty, this is a 15 minute turn around time we give ourselves to relay the rooms in preparation for the next sitting VCC Team

    What a fun experience! It's a discreet location led into a 1920s-ish speakeasy. Lighting is dim and cozy. They have a ton of drink options to choose from which are all delicious and reasonably priced. We ordered the cheese plate which came with a lot of food and was amazing.
