Absolutely loved it, loved the ambience and enjoyed both sitting at the bar and at a table. Service was great and cocktails were absolutely stunning, some of the best we’ve ever had.
We left to try somewhere else after our initial 2 hour booking, severely regretted it and came back for the rest of our night.
It made our trip to Dublin and our anniversary celebrations very special.
Have already recommended it to friends for future visits & people we met in Dublin while we were there.

We, a party of four on our first visit, went for Sunday brunch and were pleasantly surprised. We were the first guests to arrive that day. Finding it was easy but when we did we found there was no signage so we wondered if we had the wrong location. Then we noticed the lettering on an otherwise anonymous door and rang the bell. The door was opened and we were led upstairs to a mysterious candle lit room with an open fire and a number of set tables.
The list of cocktails is extensive with many unusual and, to me, previously unknown concoctions. I ordered one of those and it was so delicious I had to have a second just to be sure! There is a lovely brunch menu and we all enjoyed our orders. The service was delightful. The decor is cool and eclectic. A real little gem of a place

If you’re a vegetarian, don’t bother with the food here. All of the main dishes include meat. I’m really surprised that in 2020 they wouldn’t have a single vegetarian main dish on offer.

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.

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
