Be At One will open its 33rd site in Birmingham’s Brindleyplace following £500,000 worth of investment.

Be At One – established in 1998 with the opening of its first bar in Battersea Rise, London – has grown into one of the largest cocktail bar operators in the country boasting 33 city centre venues, 17 of which are in London.

Opening on 5 October, the new venue will become Be At One’s second site in Birmingham following the opening of a centrally located venue in the city’s Piccadilly Arcade – which has attracted more than 30,000 customers a month since opening  in 2016.
