B.Y.O.C. or ‘Bring Your Own Cocktails’ is an entirely new concept to London’s bar scene. Pitching up in Covent Garden’s,Bedfordbury Street . They do not sell alcohol!!! Guests are invited to clear the remains of their afterparties or bring their own favourite tipple, for the skilled bartender to create something bespoke, on the spot.
The classical routine of arriving at a bar and ordering a G & T cocktail has been banquished here. This is a unique cocktails den waiting to be discoverd. Enter through a colorful and health-inspiring Juice Club and descend down a peacock and gold embezled spiral stairway to be greated by grammarphone classics,exposed brickwork,vintage signs from the 1920’s and a vintage Italian Trolley.
The vintage Italian trolley contains an encyclopedic selection of fresh syrups, pressed fruit and vegetable juices, spices, herbs, salts, seasonal fruits, home-made cordials and bitters – from which the bartender can create individual drinks designed with the guests’ unique flavour profiles in mind.
This underground hide-away touches on a new interactive experience for cocktail fiends everywhere. Get a group together and work as a team to enjoy an exclusive 2 hour slot where you will be inspired,tantilized and treated! Don’t forget to sign their bathroom wall -How rude!!!!
