American Prohibition era style speakeasy. Truly a speakeasy and not just a small place trying to masquerade as a speakeasy. Felt like speakeasy in NYC not Dublin, Ireland. Menu was fantastic and had a lot of tidbits. They have a ton of options as well. Food portions were small for appetizers. But this is a cocktail place not a dinner place. 5 stars.

Very disappointing to find a cocktail / drinks venue like this didn't offer champagne by the glass. Your cocktail Champagne 75 had prosecco not everyone likes prosecco. Wine menu seemed little sparse.

Fantastic experience. We each tried different specialty cocktails. Every one was the best version we ever tasted OR our new vintage favorite. The ambiance and secret entrance made us feel like we were back in the
Prohibition era. Not cheap but definitely give it a try for a one of a kind cocktail experience.

Took my better half to Dublin and visited VCC on a friend’s recommendation. They said it had a lovely atmosphere, tasty food and great cocktails. They certainly weren’t wrong! Food was amazing, the setting was quirky and unique; as for the cocktails...they were spot on. Our only challenge was finding the entrance, walked past it twice as it was so unassuming! We’ll be back for sure.

Great couple of hours at the VCC. Food was amazing and good portion sizes. Went for my sister's birthday and when booking requested a birthday wish or some acknowledgment and there wasn't any. Apart from that that cocktails were great and so was the atmosphere.

First of all the corner table we were put had a couch where clearly the support structure wad gone... we ended up sitting in two valleys on the couch...

second of all, one member of the staff was so professional, she couldn't even smile or be friendly.

Third of all, having to pay more than 200 euro for a night out is very very steep.

I don't ill ever come back...

poor performance by a restaurant that were Vijay two three times a year... oh well!

Not a place for groups. Two small tables offered for 9 people. Cramped into a small corner so not easy to get in and out of. Also no plates provided for sharing dishes so we ate from napkins. Better for couples small groups up to 5 for cocktails only, not ideal for dining.

Staff couldn’t even crack a smile, when I joked that a staff member didn’t want to be at work they agreed and said they hated Sunday nights, then stalked off. Cocktails were good quality but service was so poor even a good drink didn’t help

My favourite cocktail place ever ever ever 😄 it's so cozy and romantic, the best place for girly catch ups, pre show drinks or date nights. Just the best! Love their Martinis, especially the one with Fountain in the name (can't remember the rest it was that strong 😁).

Used to adore this place. Only went in for cocktails. All three we ordered were disgusting. One was my favourite an amaretto Sour and was very bland. To be fair when we complained the server got us new drinks but they were no better. Didn’t have any food.

I've been here a few times, mostly for the cocktails, I said i would try the food this time. I was Far from impressed with the food as I was with the rest of the establishment.
I got fish cakes, they were ok. No issue. Then the main was fish and chips, The fries were greasy and gank if i am honest. The fish was.... Square, and in batter. I could not tell what fish it was. My date had steak, also not singing its praises.
Would i go back.... yes! not to eat. Drinks are superb, ambience is unique ! The food lets it down by a long shot, do it well or don't do it, I believe the place would be best with a jump up in quality on the food or step it down to tapas or something.
€24 for crap square fish and gank chips is tempting faith with their well earned reputation in other departments.

Unique place ideal for a quiet catch up or date (I'd imagine!). Cocktails were great and the bar man (Diarmuid) was fantastic!
Wouldn't bother with the food though. You can get much tastier fare elsewhere and it only distracts from the high quality drinks and service.
One warning though, it's extremely dark!

Lovely setting with possibly the best steak I've had. Staff were very good, helpful with guidance on the cocktail menu with reccomendations that exceeded expectations.
Portion size was spot on.
Just to add, the setting was so perfect I asked my girlfriend to marry me without causing a scene, the ring fit perfectly and she said yes!!
Thank you for a great evening

Really liked the secret entrance and the speakeasy feel inside.
I would say the food is good but extremely expensive for quite small portions, I would go again for drinks but not dinner.
The cocktails are incredible and the staff are very knowledgable - Anne Marie in particular was fantastic and her recommendations were spot on!
