We booked the vintage cocktail club in advance and we had hoped we would be seated in their rooftop bar as seen in photos. When we arrived we were placed on the street outside on our own. There was no atmosphere and they were not accommodating when we asked if we could be moved. However our waitress Camille was very friendly and helpful and recommended us nice cocktails. Unfortunately I will not be back after this experience.

Even though I booked this over 6 weeks ago for my birthday ,and we were rung that day to confirm our booking ,there was no mention that the table we had booked in the outdoor bar area had been given away to a party of 18 . I understand in these times the restaurant needs to take the bigger booking. But we could have been advised we were being moved to the street when they rung to confirm . We didn't stay and ate elsewhere.

Staff were very attentive and helpful. However, the decor outside needs to be replaced. The chairs and decor outside is dirty looking, torn chairs, worn fabrics and uncomfortable. You can go to a more upmarket venue with nicer surroundings for the same price.

The host who initially greeted us was rude and very unfriendly. The servers were nice but inexperienced when we asked for recommendations. Someone tried to rob us as we were seated on the street and two servers watched as I confronted the person who tried to rob us. They didn't offer any assistance or acknowledge what happened they just stood by and watched the situation unfold. The cocktails are gorgeous but not good enough to ever be returning. Overall very disappointed with the experience.

Booked a table for a much needed date night but was not told what time they stopped serving food. So was a bit disappointed that the kitchen was closed but we had a late booking so it wasn't surprising and was completely understandable. So we had a liquid dinner! Cocktails are outstanding! A whole book to flip through and pick whichever suits your taste! I can't wait to return in the future for dinner and drinks and experience everything the VCC has to offer!

If you like a spicy cocktail, the Red Snapper Is a must try.

It was fine under the current circumstances but I was a bit disappointed with the limited menu. I didn’t realise that when I booked it it would only be nibbles- hummus plate, cheese plates etc I had wanted brunch. Maybe this was my mistake but I don’t think it was clear via open table that it was a reduced menu for outdoor dining. Service very good but I found it very expensive for what I got and had to eat again afterwards. Maybe it could be made clearer that it’s just nibbles etc rather than a full menu. Lovely spot otherwise.

Service staff were 10/10. Flawless from ordering to paying. The time for food was a bit much. Waited 40 minutes for what was a very basic cheese board. The staff were lovely but the food was bland and overpriced.

Really struggling with Covid restrictions to give a quality experience. Outside tables surrounded by shower curtains and no effort to dress the area up is in total contrast to the normal vcc experience. Poor value for money

Vintage Cocktail Club
Responded on 5 July 2021

Hi Jeff, Every effort made, Fresh flower planters, Gas heaters, Blankets and full coverage umbrellas all organised for outdoor, but unfortunately DCC wouldn't allow us to have any of it on the street. The shower curtains were a last ditch effort to honour bookings for that weekend and keep people dry, not ideal but they did the job and for the most part guests were happy. Hopefully this experience doesn't deter you from returning.

We felt quite uncomfortable during our sitting and ended up leaving after 30 minutes. It’s a fully walled room in which the roof was 3/4 closed and there was a table less than half a metre beside us. Also the waitresses weren’t wearing masks. Obviously the drinks are good but the food (brunch) not so much. Good service and nice people but overall we certainly won’t be going back or recommending.
