    Always magical. Always safe-feeling during these Covid times due to the open roof. I’d been here twice before with my mom on a girls night whim & finally decided to bring my husband. I love VCC!

    We really enjoyed our drinks here at VCC. From being greeted out the door until the time we left, everyone we interacted with was friendly and kind. The drinks were delicious and super interesting. I can't say I've ever been anywhere like this! I only regret not seeing more of the space. Where we were was beautiful but I understand there is an upstairs area that I'll have to see next time. Prices seemed reasonable for the area, too.

    Booked VCC and was 20 mins late due to the Jameson factory running over on our cocktail class. We met two Americans and asked if we could keep our table and add two people on. VCC found us a table for 4 and our waitress was very knowledgable on the cocktails and food. We ordered sharing boards and the chicken tenders were absolutely incredible!

    Such an amazing hidden away gem in the heart of the city. Not going to lie, when we saw the door we did think it was a bit underwhelming, but boy were we wrong! Behind the non-descript VCC door, the atmosphere is cosy and calm, with dim lighting and homely furnishings. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. While you do have an allotted 2 hours, you don't feel rushed or under pressure from the staff in the slightest. We would have loved to have stayed longer! The bartender was so knowledgeable and the cocktails were delicious. Their cocktail menu is extensive (that's an understatement) so there is definitely something for everyone. Food menu is a little underwhelming and pricey for what is included, but that did not ruin it for us. The main seller is the cocktails. Highly highly recommend it. 100% will be back again if only to try more cocktails we didn't have time for.

    They were extremely understaffed and not well trained in the menu. Took 45 minutes to get our drinks- we didn’t even get the drinks we ordered. One bartender for the entire place and lovely cocktail servers running around like chickens with their heads cut off. No manager around, or so I was told. Definitely a tourist trap. Make the trek to Merchant Bar in Belfast for a superior cocktail experience. To make up for our subpar experience, VCC immediately comped the bill. Very professional and well played. Hopefully you go on a night when all their ducks are in a row.

    Vintage Cocktail ClubResponded on 5 August 2022Hi Eryn This is disappointing to read Firstly we were not understaffed, i can assure u our staff are well rehearsed in the menu. Our server offered u multiple choices without soy, dairy or gluten all of which u refused or asked for ingredients to be removed resulting in the first drink ordered 34 minutes after u arrived. You received what u asked for, when u weren't happy again, u were offered a replacement, u also refused this. The issues here aren't caused by VCC, our 'ducks' do just fine VCC

    We've never had a bad visit to the Vintage Cocktail Club. Really tremendous cocktail menu, every drink is delicious. The small bites menu is good, the meatballs have been very hit it or miss bit everything else is great. Lovely ambience, you're really able to have a conversation and enjoy the surroundings. Reservations are a must!

    Amazing evening. Very knowledgable and friendly waitress who patiently answered all our questions about the cocktails and made suggestions based on what we liked. Delicious food. Fantastic atmosphere and, as we were on the top floor, we got to experience the roof top ambience when the rain stopped and the roof was opened. Highly recommend for a brilliant night out! P.S. don’t miss out by walking straight past as we did, door is ‘incognito’ with just VCC written on it!

    Was unexpectedly able to get a reservation for 7 on a Saturday night on our last night in Dublin! The very extensive cocktail menu with little bits of cocktail history was so fun and extensive, there was definitely something for everyone. Didn’t have food so unsure how that was. But the service was exceptional and we loved the overall vibe.

    Laura was 1000% one of the best servers I have had at any establishment. She went above and beyond explaining the menu, helping select gluten free food and giving tips where to find other GF food in Dublin. (She even shared some tips for our visit to Croatia) If you read the instructions and make a reservation, this is a place you won’t want to miss. Some of the best cocktails in the world. Had a craic, great food and amazing beverages. Highly recommend!

    The VCC is five star in every way. Frankly I’d give the cocktails ten stars out of five. It’s one of those beautiful gems tucked into the middle of the city that as soon as you go you’re planning your next visit. On the other hand please don’t go because it’s my secret haven…
