BYOC Brighton

Broody and becoming, BYOC holds no alcohol on site; rather, guests are invited to bring a bottle of the hard stuff for the clever cocktail masters to blend into something delicious. Sparking an air of 1920's prohibition drinking dens, this one is kitted out in gilded furniture and exposed brick, making this speakeasy style bar in Brighton a charming little hideaway from the hubbub of the outside world. 

Speakeasy at The Wick

Perched upon the second floor of one of Hove's traditional watering holes, The Speakeasy does exactly what it says on the tin. Hearkening back to the days of Prohibition in the US, this speakeasy in Brighton delivers a roaring selection of intricate tipples and curious concoctions, all very hush hush, of course. The interior is pretty damn decadent, full to brim with vintage paraphernalia and other such collectibles. A delightful drinking spot and a charming choice of speakeasy bar in Brighton.
