With exposed brickwork, an original fireplace, gramophone and vintage signs from the 1920’s, B.Y.O.C. (or 'Bring Your Own Cocktails') is a secret underground hide-away in the heart of London, providing a totally unique and interactive experience for cocktail fiends everywhere. Hidden through a discreet door behind the counter of the Bedfordbury StreetJuice Club, guests will descend into an underground drinking den with candlelit tables, hanging glassware and a lone cocktail mixologist ready for action.
With zero alcohol available to buy, the guests are invited to bring along their favourite spirits which will then be concocted into bespoke, dazzling cocktails for them to enjoy. The expert mixologists will be on hand armed with an antique Italian drinks trolleys filled to the brim with any fresh syrups, pressed juices, spices, herbs, bitters or home-made cordials you can imagine; ready to wow you with their creations.
What we say:
The seemingly never ending recession has made 'Bring Your Own Booze' a popular choice for restaurants over the last few years, in fact you'd do well to find a non-BYOB eatery in parts of East London, so it's great that London's bars are finally catching on.
A cover price of £20 includes any juices, spices, mixing involved; all you have to do is make your reservation, bring your bottle and you're ready to roll! B.Y.O.C. is set to be a welcomed, novel idea in this relatively pricey part of town, hopefully paving the way for more cool and innovative similar haunts in the future. Long live B.Y.O.C!
