IT’S STRANGE, BUT PROHIBITION IN THE UNITED STATES DURING THE 1920S DID GREAT THINGS FOR DRINKS AND DRINKING CULTURE. BAD-TASTING BATHTUB GINS FORCED BARTENDERS TO FIND EXCITING NEW WAYS TO FLAVOUR DRINKS AND THE POLICE, CONSTANTLY ON THE PROWL FOR BOOTLEGGED BOOZE, DROVE PEOPLE UNDERGROUND, CREATING THEIR OWN SECRET WORLD THAT CELEBRATED THE SHARING OF DRINKS AND COMPANY. THE SPEAKEASY WAS BORN.
AT BYOC WE STRIVE TO DELIVER EVERYTHING THAT WAS GREAT ABOUT THE SPEAKEASY WITHOUT THE DANGER OF BEING BUSTED BY THE COPPERS AT ANY MOMENT! SIMPLY BRING A BOTTLE OF YOUR FAVOURITE SPIRIT TO ONE OF OUR HIDDEN-AWAY HAUNTS AND HAVE OUR TEAM OF SKILLED BARTENDERS, ARMED WITH AN EXCITING ARRAY OF HOMEMADE SYRUPS, JUICES, AND BITTERS, FIX YOU SOMETHING THAT REALLY TICKLES YOUR FANCY. WHETHER YOUR TASTE BUDS ARE LUSTING AFTER A CLASSIC OR SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE ADVENTUROUS, YOUR PALATE WILL BE SATED.
SO FOR AN EVENING OF FLAVOUR, FRIVOLITY AND FEDORAS UNLIKE ANY OTHER, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN BYOC. THE SPIRIT OF THE SPEAKEASY.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
OUR STANDARD RESERVATION SECURES YOU A TWO-HOUR SEATING. DURING THAT TIME YOU WILL BE TENDED TO AT YOUR SEAT BY A PROFESSIONAL MIXOLOGIST, WHO WILL ENDEAVOUR TO QUICKLY LEARN ABOUT YOUR PREFERENCES AND TAILOR COCKTAILS TO YOUR TASTE USING THE SPIRITS YOU'VE BROUGHT. YOUR OFFERING MAY INCLUDE SOME SHARING DRINKS FOR YOUR GROUP SUCH AS PUNCHBOWLS ALONGSIDE INDIVIDUAL COCKTAILS AND CREATIVELY FLAVOURED BESPOKE SHOTS.
WHAT TO BRING:
THE EVENT HOST WILL BRING A MIXTURE OF UNFLAVOURED SPIRITS SUCH AS VODKA, RUM, AND GIN, AS THEY ARE MOST VERSATILE AND ALLOW THE BARTENDER TO SHOW OFF THE LARGEST RANGE OF COCKTAILS AND BREADTH OF FLAVOURS.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BRING ANY SOFT DRINKS OR MIXERS AS THESE ARE PROVIDED BY US AS PART OF YOUR EXPERIENCE.
