About
BYOC Camden is cosy cocktail bar that sell no alcohol. Inspired by the Prohibition-era speakeasy and the birth of cocktail culture in the 1920s, patrons bring spirits of their choice. A booking guarantees seats and the personal attention of a first class mixologist who creates unique cocktails using the finest quality syrups, bitters, purées, herbs, fruits and spices. Many of these “secret” ingredients are prepared from scratch. B.Y.O.C. Camden won (May 2018) the Design My Night London Awards 2017/8 for 'Best Bar in Camden'. The opening times shown indicate the first and last sitting (for a 2-hour booking). However, when booking for days other than Friday and Saturday, may contact you to inform you that the last seating is not available as late as 23:30, dependent on demand on the particular night. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=ZXRrVmYrZNT

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Camden
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighborhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.

Went to BYOC last night and had an amazing time. Was lucky to sit on Santos's table who was an incredible host! She made us a whole variety of cocktails, all of which were absolutely amazing the best I have ever been made, added by the warm and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely be going back.

Reece was amazing and I love the concept of this bar! The way you bring you're own booze is amazing, it's great for groups and hen parties!

Waiting for an excuse to come back here

Such a great concept and an incredible venue (definitely very "camden"!) but the night was made by Stefano being such an incredible host. He made us a whole variety of cocktails, all of which I would never usually order but absolutely loved, talking us through the process and answering our million questions. The best cocktails I've ever had made even better by a warm and friendly atmosphere. Will be recommending to everyone I know!

Cramped and didn't feel comfortable especially now
Sep 2020 • Friends
The one in London was honestly so small and cramped, they had proper squashed the tables in, it was boiling hot in there and humid and they had like one fan honestly it was just not a pleasant experience. And each couple we were with brought a different type of spirit based on what they liked but then they said if they were to keep making specific drinks for each couple based on the spirit, we'd probably only get about 3 drinks each in 2 hours so then we just ended up having to have everything which isn't really what we wanted to do. There wasn't any music and our barman wasn't particularly chatty he kept disappearing off because I think he was serving other people as well, so we were just sat there in this cramped humid place trying to talk to each other. We'd have been more spaced out in my kitchen at home! Personally I didn't feel comfortable given Covid to have no ventilation and be in such a tightly cramped space.

Best bartenders in London

Cannot rate Stefano highly enough (sorry if I've spelt your name wrong). We brought three bottles between three of us, which you definitely dont have to do, but we had a whole range of cocktails. He introduced us to all different flavours and talked us through what he was doing so we could try at home. We all felt so included in deciding what the next drink was and the making of them. We will be returning soon!! Thank you for a great night!!!

We really enjoyed our evening here! There was a few of us so we had a private booth and barman making the cocktails who was super lovely! You take your one alcoholic drinks and they make up some nice drinks for your group! Something different and fun to do.

Little Gem. Great time and very good value. Go.

First-time visitor on a quiet Wednesday evening. From the street you might easily miss the place as they really are going for the whole “Prohibition, secret Speakeasy” look. Once inside we loved the low lighting and interior decor.
There is a Sainsbury’s local conveniently situated on the opposite side of the road for you to select your own booze to take in for your 2 hour cocktail slot. We took a bottle of vodka and gin for variety but only one is necessary.
Our mixologist, Louis, was fantastic all night asking a few questions at first to see what our tastes were, and then just coming up with very inventive creations.
I really like this aspect of not having to keep going back to the cocktail menu and selecting your next drink. Louis just kept the cocktails coming. We were never waiting and as he was quiet, he was able to make us extra drinks over the advertised five that you get for the standard price of £30 per head.
Would definitely go back and introduce others to this little gem. If you like cocktails this is incredibly good value.
TIP 1. Make sure you book it’s not the sort of place you just turn up too.
TIP 2. Go soon! They did have other branches which have closed. Please keep this one open.
TIP 3. You don’t need to splash out on artisan spirits. Just some reasonable vodka/gin etc and you’ll have a great time.

AMAZING experience! Best tasting cocktails
Dec 2019 • Friends
Came here with a group of 5 women for a fun girl’s night. We brought a bottle of gin, a bottle of rum and a bottle of vodka so we could have a selection of cocktails. We ended up with a private booth in the back with Omir who was an amazing mixologist who made the most delicious cocktails!! We really enjoyed our two hour slot here and then finished the evening with dancing at Electric Ballroom which is just up the road!

Great time - feeling it now!

8 of us experienced this last night, we took a bottle each so had a right old mix-up! No messing about - if you want a fun night and to get rather drunk it’s the perfect gig.
