Visited the bar on a Monday it was not packed but it was very enjoyable, great place to go for a casual drink with good atmosphere. The bartenders were all excellent, offering a speedy service in making drinks and even showed off their competent cocktail making skills. Very much enjoyed the experience at this bar, and even managed to learn a name of one of the bar staff #JOHAN

Visited B@1 on a monday during Happy hour and it was amazing. It was not packed but all the bartenders were very nice and friendly they offered a quick service in making all drinks and demonstrated their fancy competent cocktail making skills. All the bartenders engaged with customers which made the environment of the bar extremely enjoyable. Had a very enjoyable time and managed to learn the name of the barman that served us (#JOHAN)

Great place - energy / vibe! This would get 5stars easy for atmosphere and fun however you really MUST watch what you're charged for drinks - As a regular to this bar - during several occasions on different nights I've been overcharged up to double the amount - either at point of card payment or before... it might all be a coincidence of course... but due to the number of times this has happened, I felt compelled to write a review... it's a shame as it's the only drawback

Visited this bar for the first (and last) time in February of this year. We had reserved a table, however on arrival were advised that a few men had sat themselves there and were refusing to move. We were then offered another table on the dance floor, but had to wait 30mins for it to become available. When we were eventually seated a member of staff advised us to watch our bags, wallets etc. as thieves tend to target the dance floor area (nice). However, with no cloakroom to store our coats we were forced to put them on a raised shelf behind our table. My friend caught a couple of girls rifling through our coats, supposedly looking for their own. It shouldn’t have come as any surprise to me when my own coat was missing at the end of the night. Reported it to a member of staff who didn’t seem very interested, took my details and said he would call me the next day. No call and coat long gone! I live in London so am fully aware what kind of crowd to expect in a Shoreditch bar, although the people in here on a Saturday night are rough as(particularly the females). Steer clear!

The bar atmosphere is very good. Staff serving behind the bar are very attentive and also quick but I'm marking it down because of thisi was there last month in October. went to the loo..went back to my seat and there was a hard tap on my shoulder...i turned around there was a bar-staff...with a very angered look. asked me if i was in the loo... and yelled at me for not turning the tap off... and continued yelling said people like me cause the toilets to flood.. and he yelled at me in-front all my guests...embarrassing me further... and he continued to caution me never to do it again.. I guess the standards in the service industry have dropped. Yelling and being aggressive at customers seems to be the norm. I would expect this in a rough pub in a rural area but not an established chain like b@1. In my time, we would gently remind the customer that they left the tap on..with courtesy.. i guess maybe courtesy is not a strong point with chain pubs like this..

My absolute favorite bar. Bar staff is absolutely amazing and make excellent cocktails. All night happy hour on Sundays is the best.

The biggest so far of the eleven-strong (and growing) bar group, Be At One Shoreditch is a super-sleek venue with seriously good drinks to match – not to mention some of London’s friendliest bartenders.

The Venue
The exterior is unimposing, but look out for the neon ‘cocktails’ sign and you’ve found the right place. Walk through the bar and you’ll find large sofas and tables to the right, with a large window that’s open all summer; further in there’s high tables and stools and, right at the back, a raised area with booth-style seating that’s ideal for groups. The bar takes up most of the left-hand side of the venue with an attractive display of spirits and soft lighting that accentuates the bottles. Wooden flooring, warm lighting and mirrored walls make this one of the most stylish venues in the group.

The Atmosphere
Expect hoards of trendy people – this is Shoreditch after all. The crowds are drawn in with the daily happy hour, where you can buy one cocktail and get one free, with weekends being particularly busy. The staff go out of their way to make sure you’re having a good time and, in turn, the bar has a friendly, laid-back atmosphere. Lively music ranges from up-to-date favourites to 80s classics and, as the night goes on, people can’t help but start dancing.

The Drink
With a recently revamped and perfected menu being brought into play, the cocktails at Be At One have become much stronger contenders for praise in the London bar scene. There are more than 160 concoctions on the menu, so it may take some time getting through, but the staff will be more than happy to help. For a spicy twist on a classic, try the Stormier Seas (£5.50), with Kraken dark spiced rum, lime wedges and ginger beer, or go for something a little different with the Diefenbaker (£7.50), Named after the part dog, part wolf in Due South, it’s a smooth blend of bourbon, maple syrup, lemon and a dash of aromatic bitters. The English Fizz (£8.50) is a delicious blend of gin, elderflower liqueur, homemade cucumber syrup, mint leaves and a dash of soda water – it’s a perfect summer cooler. If you need something a little stronger, try the Scarpering Bandito (£7.50), a carefully balanced mix of tequila, dark rum, banana liqueur, crème de mure, strawberry puree, lime cordial, grenadine and sweet and sour (citrus and sugar) – you may struggle to stay upright after more than one. There is also a small selection of nuts, olives and crisps – the bloody Mary crisps are particularly good.

The Last Word
A great atmosphere in stylish surroundings with delicious drinks to boot, this Be At One has everything you need for a top night out.
