Vintage Cocktail Club in Dublin was an awesome experience! The cocktail menu itself is so detailed and interesting, and you know you'll be getting something hand-crafted and unique. Great atmosphere and helpful service!

Sitting on a stool is not my idea of a romantic cocktail and dinner experience. It was the most uncomfortable seat in the whole place. I looked around and was so disappointed to see that I was the only patron in the club who had to sit on a stool. How embarrassing. The other couples took all the space on the bench so there was not enough room. The cocktails were fantastic and the wait staff outstanding. We only stayed for 20 minutes due to the seating arrangements. Please, for future patrons, check to make sure there is enough space before seating. Major bummer for me.

la banquette était inconfortable au possible, impossible de se sentir a l'aise en étant aussi mal assis, les cocktails n'ont rien d'exceptionnels , aucune inventivité ni originalité, trop de glaçons ; la musique ne convient pas du tout au cadre.

Absolutely amazing spot. World class cocktails. Fantastic service. Wonderful atmosphere. The food was delicious. My one singular issue would be the lack of a vegetarian main course option on the menu. My favourite night out spot in Dublin.

I was really disappointed. The food was cold & tasteless & overpriced. The cocktails were okay, there was no espresso martini! Service was slow and eventually when the waitress did come over she told us it would be our last cocktail!!!

Once you find the non-descript little entrance with the letters VCC stuck roughshod on the door...the Journey begins! Alice takes you upstairs before walking you in to a wonderful era of yesteryear! A true speakeasy experience. Magical cocktails and a solid spread of bites to get you through the night. One of the best atmospheres for a great night I've seen in Dublin. Very special! Thanks Guys!

For someone who has been all over the world and experienced cocktails bars this is up there with the most pretentious. A table no bigger than a postage stamp for a couple who want to enjoy a night out. You feel like you can’t talk as the next table is on your lap. Then the menu - over thought and simply for instagram. Don’t waste your time and hit the Liquor Rooms round the corner. Better atmosphere and more choice. If your after a photo for social media then this is the place for you, if you want to enjoy your night Dublin has a lot more to offer.

My friend and I went for brunch and the food was delicious. It took a while for our drinks and our food to arrive but otherwise service was good, the waitresses were very nice. The atmosphere is lovely although a bit too dark to go during the day, perhaps they could open the curtains until it gets dark.

Very good amazing cocktails! It was so nice to have a good cocktail place in Dublin where you can have a sit down and actually talk as the other pubs in Dublin are so busy and full mainly with stag and hen do you can’t even get to the bar sometimes. It is the perfect place for a couple or small group of friends

We have been to VCC a couple of times before and never had a bad experience but this time ended on a sour note. We were coming to the end of our time slot at about 9.30pm but saw that the room had several empty tables and others who arrived at the same time as us were still ordering more drinks. We asked our server if we could order one more round and she said that was fine. Our drinks arrived and just as we were starting to drink them, another server comes up to us and says she needs the table right away for the next party - in a room almost entirely full of empty tables. She also says we may not sit anywhere else but we're welcome to stand in another room if we want to finish our drinks. I'm aware that we had stayed longer than our time slot but if that was unacceptable then we should have been told so on trying to order one more. It also seems very poor form to kick us out of a room of empty tables because you need our table!

My wife and I were booked in last Saturday evening and we were very well looked after by our host Ann Marie. This is our second visit to VCC and would recommend it very highly, the cocktails were outstanding and the service and recommendations from Ann Marie was fantastic! We will definitely be back for a visit the next time we are in Dublin!

Our experience at the VCC was outstanding! The atmosphere and extensive cocktail menu alone are enough to rave about. But the service was also top notch. My one advice is you MUST have a reservation especially on a weekend as the place fills up very quickly.

My mom and I were in Dublin for a few nights, and someone recommended VCC. It completely surpassed my expectations. It is truly a speak easy with just a small sign in the door and a door bell. Staff was super helpful and kind. The ambiance is unique with a great vibe. Cocktails are delicious and the food was outstanding. We split three shareable and it was plenty. Look forward to returning on my next trip to Dublin. Oh and music was cool without being overwhelming.

Little gem 💎 in the heart of temple bar. Well worth a visit. Our waiter was lovely and very attentive but we found it difficult to understand is accent which is a barrier when asking for recommendations off the cocktail menu. Overall it was a lovely experience.
