Description

A concept bar bringing London's original BYOC to the midst of our Brighton Shores, BYOC Brighton is a truly unique drinking venture where guests take charge over their cocktails of choice.

Sparking an air of 1920s prohibition lounges and drinking dens, BYOC Brighton is a broody basement adventure. From vintage gilded furniture and a bespoke cocktail trolley to subtle golden flecks and indulgent velvets, this is one delicious hideaway found in amongst exposed beams and brickwork; making for an altogether intimate location popular with young and fun 20 somethings. 

The first bar of its kind in Brighton, BYOC boast no alcohol on their premises, leaving the spirit in your cocktail tipple completely up to you. Bring a bottle of your favoured bourbon or supermarket vodka, it's up to you, as BYOC's master mixologists will take to the challenge and whip you up a frenzy of unique blends and flavours be you a fan of the tart or the bitter.

A group of my friends were visiting me so decided byoc would be a fun option! We were not disappointed! Danny was great, super friendly, made some awesome cocktails & joined in with our daft conversations! Will be back, thank you!! Visited BYOC Brighton on 2018-01-13

The actual evening there was very good and our group enjoyed it greatly. However, the organisation was nothing short of terrible. I booked NYE in mid November to ensure I could get the time I wanted for the group size we had (10). We originally booked 10:30-12:30 so that we could see New Year through there. When I checked the confirmation email it showed that we had been booked in at the wrong time (8:30-10:30). I understood that this was partially my fault as I hadn’t checked the email thoroughly enough. On the day we were supposed to attend I rang to check that the booking was at 8:30 just in case the email was an error. During this phone call I found out that there was no record of our booking whatsoever. As you can imagine, this was a pretty stressful situation to be in when I’d booked NYE for a group of people. Thankfully, they were able to squeeze us in but at an even earlier time which then meant some of the group couldn’t come. The event was great, the booking system was terrible.

Arrived then had to go and find a cash machine as they don’t accept card. We had booked 10pm- midnight. Around 11.45pm the staff disappeared upstairs and we were left to our own devices on our own downstairs, then asked to leave as it was closing just after midnight. Overall, not great, and we most certainly won’t be in any hurry to return or recommend it! Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-31

I have lived in Brighton for 12 years and wanted to do something different for my 30th birthday. Everything about BYOC was amazing, from the friendly staff who helped with my booking all the way to our incredible barman Ben. It was a memorable experience and will definitely be coming back! Thank you for such a great night x Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-22

I paid for a party of 4 as a birthday gift for a friend which was £100. I did this over the phone when booking and it was hassle-free. I did request some sort of email confirmation that I could print-off or a voucher that I could include in her birthday card, however, that never materialised unfortunately. A few hours before we were due to arrive, I received a phone call to remind me I needed to pay in cash on arrival. I explained I'd already paid, to which the lady on the phone said "Oh, our records don't show that." A minor issue and I had proof of payment so it wasn't a problem. The cocktail makers were phenomenal. I've never had cocktails like this before and I'd definitely recommend this place for cocktail lovers. Especially if you'd like to try a range of drinks you wouldn't usually get a chance to experience. Overall, it was a lovely evening and the 2 hour time-slot sadly came to a swift end before we knew it. Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-15

What a fantastic night. Our friendly Irish bar man was great fun and kept us all entertained. The cocktails he made were impressive and we will definitely be back. Great place for a works Christmas night out. I would recommend this place for fun and giggles. Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-15

Whilst the night was good, I’m appalled that when paying my deposit by debit card over the phone, I was told that my card wasn’t working, then discovered the next day that payment had in fact been taken FOUR TIMES; once I’d received the overpayments back several days later, I was then charged for a FIFTH TIME! Three phone calls today, no one has yet got back to me. Very poor customer service by BYOC. I’ll not be returning. Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-16

Visited here on Saturday and had an amazing evening. Brilliant atmosphere, great music, knowledgeable staff who were friendly and welcoming. Delicious drinks tailored to our tastes and some things we'd have never tried otherwise. Spoils definitely go back again! Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-09

I thought the bartenders were excellent and made some amazing cocktails! It was a good venue and great experience. However, the host was incredibly rude. She had no idea about how to speak to customers and effectively told us to leave in no uncertain terms. I appreciate that we booked a certain time period but there is a way of saying this in a more polite and understanding way. It also seemed unnecessary as there was no one waiting for our table. There should be a place for people to sit and finish off their drinks. Her behaviour on the night does now mean I won't be recommending this to any of my friends. Although the bartenders and drinks were awesome! Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-09

All very good but when our time was up, the front desk staff were rather too keen to shift us out. Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-08

Really made an excellent addition to our night out. Ben looked after us (should I say coped with some with big personalities) really professionally making us laugh the whole way through. Only small negative is the styling as you go upstairs, quite dark and more could be added,/finishing touches. Thank you to all Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-02

Disappointed with our visit here. Had been previously in a big group and really enjoyed it. This time we were a group of 3 and during 2 hour period we only had 3/4 cocktails. Definitely not worth it Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-12-01

We had an amazing night and were fortunate to be in a private room for someone's leaving party which was amazing. Ben was extremely patient with our differing tastes for the cocktails. Thanks again! Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-11-24

What a fantastic night we had at BYOC. Beautifully looked after by our bartender Ben, who made us some delicious cocktails. The establishment itself is like walking back in time, with its dark and decadent rooms and sultry jazz playing, it was such an experience. I shall definitely be going back :) Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-11-25

We had a booking we arrived early and noone was there. We rang a door bell for 20 minutes, tried ringing the phone number it was a London number noone answered as it was after office times and we spoke to the neighbouring business also... It was a shame as it was my sisters 21st birthday, we had bought our spirits that we probably wont use. If you have online booking it would be nice to not be able to book when you are closed. I really hope we aren't being charged the £40 as you were the no show maybe we should get £40 for the inconvenience. Visited BYOC Brighton on 2017-11-15

My boyfriend and I loved BYOC. The venue, the atmosphere, the staff and of course, the cocktails. The gentleman making us our drinks was Will and we'd like to give a shout out to him for making our experience at BYOC all the more enjoyable. We will definitely be returning.
