Three of the sweetest words in the English language: Bring Your Own.

Whether it's to cut costs, or because you have the exact wine or beer to go with the food you know you want to have, a night in a BYOB spot just can't be beat

Here are seven of the best, and most generous, places to BYO tonight. 

1. Jerusalem and Little Jerusalem 

Jerusalem on Camden Street, Little Jerusalem in Rathmines and Swords are three great spots for Middle Eastern food. 

Can't beat bringing your choice of bevs and eating some delicious food in one of Dublin's best eateries.

2. Musashi 

If I could eat my three meals a day in Musashi, I would.

Genuinely, I never shut the fuck up about this unreal sushi place. 

Located on Capel Street, down in IFSC, in Sandyford, and soon to be on Hogan Place just off Merrion Square, but only Capel Street offer BYOB. So hit 'em up.

Wine only. 

Corkage – €6.

3. dada

You've probably passed this place on South William Street a million times.

I ventured in recently and was beyond pleasantly surprised. They serve really lovely Moroccan food and, of course, it's BYOB. 

Again, wine only, you mad yoke, no spirits or beer. Calm down. 

Corkage – €4.

4. Rotana Cafe

This Lebanese restaurant in Portobello offer free corkage, and they have shisha. 

Yes, shisha. 

It's great value, the portions are massive and they make best baba ghanoush.

5. Zakura 

Zakura is a champ when it comes to BYOB. Located on both Camden Street and Wexford Street, they serve unreal food at deadly prices with a buzzing atmosphere. 

I'm not sure what their rule is concerning what kinds of drink you can BYO of, but I have made a killer G&T in there with complimentary ice – no problemo. 

Check out the menu here.

Corkage – €4 per person. 


6. Gallagher & Co 

This bistrois but a two-minute walk from O'Connell Street. Not only do they permit you to bring your own booze, but they also have an amazing two course set menu for €21 (a popular price point in these places), all night long.

Corkage – freeeeeeeee.

7. The Vintage Kitchen

This spot can be booked out weeks in advance, and it's no surprise. 

The Vintage Kitchen serves some truly classic cuisine – and some of the best food a BYO restaurant has to offer in this fine city. You'll never leave disappointed and you'll always leave full. 

Corkage – €3.50 per person.
