I spent a couple of days in Dublin last week and boy were they an eventful few days! We ate and drank too much and even did a few of the touristy things in between shopping and relaxing in the sun.
On of the coolest and interesting things I did in Dublin was visit the Vintage Cocktail Club (VCC) on Crown Alley in Dublin 2. The VCC spreads over three floors and the stylish venue serves up a large selection of signature cocktails inspired by the 1920s.
You are whisked off to the prohibition period from the very beginning as the entrance is a plain black door that you would nearly walk past if you were not sure where to look. Ring the bell and wait to be ushered in and seated in a shabby chic decor that catches the era to a tee.
The cocktail menu is extensive and many are inspired by the 1920s. I indulged in a vodka based cocktail called a Moscow Mule which was ridiculously good. This particular cocktail was invented in 1941 by John G. Martin and Jack Morgan.
The VCC is one of the worst kept secrets in Dublin and the atmosphere of the illicit speakeasy and 1920s glamour is not to be missed.
