What they say:
Already overtly successful in London, BYOC now present their unique cocktail offering to Brighton's shores. A basement venue boasting Prohibition style charm, exposed brickwork, vintage furniture and a silent cinema, BYOC are a lot more than intimate interiors. Their unique premise is simple: bring a bottle of your most favoured alcohol, pay £20 to a sprightly chap at a desk by the front door for a 2 hour slot, and get ready for BYOC's master mixologists to cultivate you a unique selection of crafty concoctions.
What we say:
This is just the kind of cocktail bar that Brighton have been craving. Not that other cocktail bars in Brighton don't promise plenty of creativity and panache because we love you and you totally do, but BYOC seems to boast nothing that the rest of them do, the customers complete and utter input. 'Bring your own bottle of booze' they silently heckle from their underground den of cocktail debauchery. With a silent cinema, brass laden cocktail trolleys, speakeasy secrecy and punchy bar staff to boot? We're swooning all over the shop.
