Discerning drinkers have a new temple to worship at with Dublin’s newest cocktail emporium (and best kept secret) the Vintage Cocktail Club (VCC).  Guests on the night included Bressie, actor Chris O’Dowd, Mary Scott of TV3’s Head Chef fame; model Julie Kavanagh, TV and radio presenter Aidan Power and Today FM’s Ray Foley.

Situated in the heart of Dublin’s city centre in Crown Alley, Dublin 2 the stylish new venue is spread over three floors and offers a unique nightlife experience like never before seen in Ireland.  As the name suggests it’s vintage by nature with quirky decor and a laid back, speakeasy vibe.

Upon arrival, guests were treated to a selection of VCC’s cocktails all of which were created by VCC’s Head Mixologist and General Manager, Gareth Lambe. The party atmosphere was also kept in full swing with entertainment on the night by Ireland’s leading ragtime pianist Colm ‘Stride’ O’Brien.

If you’re looking for brash cocktails with loud attitude then keep walking, chances are you’ll have missed VCC’s discreet doorway presence anyway.
