B.Y.O.C Brighton


Just like its London big sister, BYOC does not sell alcohol. With everyone trying to do the speakeasy thang, this is as close as you’re going to get to the real Prohibition, but it’s a helluva lot better than your average juice bar.

First up, you need a booking - 20 quid gets you two hours of the bartender’s time and love. So, how does it work? You buy a bottle at the offie or bring whatever you have lying around the house, it really doesn’t matter what you bring - no one’s judging.

Take a seat and have a chat with the friendly, skilled bar dudes about what you like, and they’ll take your spirit and mix you up something delicious. If you’re keen to try something new, this is the spot and if you don’t like it? No worries, just share! You can send your drink elsewhere and the bartender will make you something more to your palette. They’ll soon come up with a five star masterpiece cocktail. After a two-hour session at BYOC, we came out more than a little tipsy, feeling thoroughly spoilt.

The juices are supplied by a local juicer every day and the fruit is all as fresh as it gets, along with an arsenal of the traditional and less traditional ingredients, so all you need is the sauce. It’s sophisticated yet super chilled, and because it’s subterranean, there’s no phone signal, which means everyone gets chatting. We like.
