B.Y.O.C. aka 'Bring Your Own Cocktails' is a plush and broody cocktail bar in Covent Garden with, wait for it...no alcohol on sale.
For a small fee, guests are invited to bring along their bottle of spirit of choice and an open mind. With expert mixologists on hand, armed with an arsenal of cocktail accompaniments, from home-made cordials to fresh fruit, spices to herbs; they promise to mix and shake you up dazzling bespoke cocktails with the alcohol you've brought along.
Hidden away through a secret door behind the counter of the Bedfordbury Street Juice Club in Covent Garden, guests descend into an underground cocktail haven filled with antique trolleys, hanging glassware and expert bartenders, ready to impress. B.Y.O.C. is reservations only and encourages you to challenge the mixologists with obscure spirits - at your own risk of course. Oh did we mention, this secret bar seats just 18 people! A nummy little nook for private parties and seriously unique night on the city tiles.
We went to BYOC in Covent Garden for the first time last night. It was a really wonderful experience, having cocktails especially handcrafted for you, very intimate venue, and wonderfully friendly, attentive, creative and skilled mixologist. Highly recommended and will definitely be going back! We loved it!
I've been in Byoc Covent Garden for my first date and it was amazing. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed. I really loved the candles everywhere and the jazz music. It's a really lovely place I highly recommend.
Loved the experience! Took multiple bottles of different spirits, to try out a few different drinks. It's a very intimate space and almost feels as though you're completely alone. The mixologist was incredibly knowledgable and hit the spot with each drink. A must try experience!
