It's January which means one thing: everyone is piss poor. Thankfully the world took note of this and created our socialising January best friend forever in the form of BYOB (Bring Your Own Booze). If you're struggling to think of cheap ways to have the craic this month, and throughout the year, then try out some of these top-notch hangouts that won't break the bank and will give you the sesh you crave:
Tucked away on South William Street, the Hideout is perfect for anyone who loves playing pool in a chilled out atmosphere. BYOB is available all weekend long but only from 6pm during the weekdays. Student nights are Monday to Thursday and it's 10 euro per student to enter and €5 to bring in beer.
If you fancy a night of good food that won't break the bank and an eclectic atmosphere then try Rotana Cafe. Rotana serves Lebanese food and the corkage fee is absolutely free. The BYOB Cafe even has shisha pipes!
