Specialist cocktail bar group Be At One has secured a leasehold agreement for a new site in Bournemouth, meaning the group now has 33 sites in its portfolio.

The site on Richmond Hill is a former nightclub, with basement trading space and capacity for 200 guests. It is next to the city’s market square and a short distance from the seafront, marking the group’s second location on the south coast in addition to its Brighton premises.

Vibrant city

Be At One director Steve Locke said: “We’re really excited to have secured this prominent site in Bournemouth as it’s a location that has long been on our target list.

“It’s a vibrant city that has benefitted from significant investment in recent times which, in turn, has brought a great buzz to the centre from locals and tourists alike.”

Locke said once it is open the site will have “a classic Be At One feel to it” - creating an intimate space that will help generate its “unique atmosphere”.

“We’re eager to get the site open as we move into summer and expect a busy few months ahead,” he added.

August opening date

The site will undergo an extensive refurbishment before opening in August with its new Be At One identity.

“We look forward to delivering the Be At One experience of high-quality cocktails and warm, friendly service in a fun atmosphere to our new guests in the city,” said Locke.
