Vintage Cocktail Club

Vintage Cocktail Club , Dublin - just off of Temple Bar, hidden amongst an array of different popular buildings, is the door with the letters VCC - easy to get lost (as I did a couple of loops of the block before realising I had the place all along) I walked up the stairs to the cosiest vintage lounge and the most extensive, detailed and exquisite cocktail menu I'd ever seen! There were plush seats, clashing patterned floors and ceilings. The toilets had the best #floorsofinstagram I'd seen in a while, and the outdoor rooftop area was pretty impressive in decor too. The menu went through different eras of cocktail from the golden ages to the tiki craze. The cocktails we opted for were: 


Jameson Irish Whiskey, Rosemary-infused Rhubarb Liqueur, fresh citrus, VCC 3 Sugar Syrup, egg whites, with a rosemary skewer


Gosling’s Dark Rum, Lamb’s Navy Rum, fresh grapefruit juice, fresh citrus & gomme syrup, with a grapefruit wedge, fresh mint, finished with a pimento mist
I'm not going to lie, I was apprehensive trying a cocktail which had egg white in it - I had images of protein shakes when in reality the Rosy & Jim had a lovely frothy top to it and the cocktail itself was gorgeous. I forget that when I create cocktails, I should just add a sprig of rosemary because I love the taste so much. The Navy Grog tasted like a whiskey sours style drink and was also delicious. The cocktails were priced at 11.95 euros each which I think is an absolute steal for such unique cocktails. If you are in Dublin ever, or just love cocktails, make this top of your list to visit. Next time I go back, I'm having a tequila mockingbird - ironically the book I was reading on this trip!
