In the late ‘90s, the cocktail bar industry was becoming saturated with bars which focused more on style than substance. This was the an opportunity for Steve, Leigh and Rhys, who had met while working together in the West End of London in the early 1990s.
They threw in their jobs, each got themselves a car loan and a credit card, and bought a run down Indian restaurant on Battersea Rise. Over the following seven weeks they created a cocktail bar.
Today their legacy has amounted to no less than 31 bars all over the UK. Be At One has become one of the biggest cocktail bar chains and has gone from strength to strength opening bars across London, expanding across the South (Reading, Brighton, Oxford and Milton Keynes) the West (Bristol, Bath and Cardiff), and the recent expansion into the North and Midlands (Sheffield, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and Liverpool).
