“Hidden cocktail bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2017

I visited this cocktail bar with my girlfriend on a Monday evening in Dublin. Although I'd seen it marked on google maps, it wasn't until we were recommended it by a person working in a restaurant that we took the plunge. To be honest I doubt I would have found it just using Google Maps.

The initials VCC on the door gave us a clue we had the right place, but nothing about it screamed cocktail bar. We rang the doorbell, twice, and eventually we were allowed in. We were asked if we'd booked (apparently this is advisable) but we hadn't and were told we could go to the "terrace", thankfully it was indoor.

It was really nicely decorated inside, laid out like a speakeasy. Fortunately there was a space left for us to sit down as it was fairly busy. We had a couple of rounds of cocktails and there was lots of choice. Cocktails are no cheaper than €10 but were good.

There was table service, but as with most cocktail places: only one person was making them so it was a little slow.

“An experience to try ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2017 via mobile

A little hidden cocktail bar off Temple Bar in Dublin. We did it for the experience. Since it's hidden and by reservation only, we had to try it.
The atmosphere is nice and relaxing. Very mid-1900s style setup. The staff was very friendly and very well dressed.
Adults only bar.

“What's not to love?! 🍹”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2017 via mobile

We have visited now several times when in Dublin and always found the place to have a great atmosphere, serving fabulous cocktails in an intimate setting. Our last visit we ordered several small plates to nibble on and they were all excellent too. Highly recommended!

“Behind the black door lies another era!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2016 via mobile

I can't believe this place is open 4 years and we only made it in yesterday!! We didn't have a table booked but arrived at 5.45 on a Friday evening to be shown to a table in the basement by our lovely server Emily!!! The place is dark and atmospheric and almost like being in another world! We immediately fell in love with the place! The cocktail list is extensive with some great names such as Tequila Mockingbird and Absinthe Minded. All the cocktails are €11.95 and for such great quality, different cocktails it's not a bad price at all, considering alot of cocktail bars in Dublin are charging up on 15€ per cocktail.

Our table was needed back at 7.30pm but Emily gave us a seat at the bar which is soooooo worth it!! Watching Richie the cocktail maestro was mesmerising!!!

We thoroughly loved the place, the cocktails and the banter with Emily and Richie! Can't wait to go back!
