Vintage Cocktail Club
It’s tempting to roll your eyes at the concept behind the Vintage Cocktail Club. There’s no signage at the Temple Bar spot, just a doorbell and a tiny ‘VCC’ sticker on the black door. The whole speakeasy vibe seems a little contrived at this stage but, luckily, the bar upstairs is worth all of the rigmarole. There’s an eccentric, old-fashioned feel to the space, with tasselled lampshades and floral wallpaper, but it’s remarkably cozy thanks to the roaring fires. The staff is genuinely friendly and knowledgeable, which is handy when it comes to deciphering the tome of a menu.
