This is maybe a place that needs no introduction for those already living and working in London, such is the popularity of this chain of cocktail bars. However, I thought I had to tell you about this particular one, located minutes from Covent Garden and literally across the road from the Lyceum Theatre, as it is just so nice.
This Be At One has many things going for it, though it's central location, so ease of access from even the most tourist of spots has to be close to the top. It also serves damn nice cocktails in a convivial atmosphere, hence its popularity I guess.
The fact that this Be At One is a small and intimate affair, and in fact their first venue in Covent Garden, I am sure will appeal, but it is also the choice and variety of their cocktails that keep the people coming. I'm sure you'll agree, after one look at their extensive menu, there really aren't that many places that can compete with such a complete and varied range of alcohols.
I have to say, the cosy feel to the place in Covent Garden Lyceum is also a winner, as the qualities of a snug really allows you to relax and enjoy the quality of your concoction.
Should you fancy a go yourself, why not sign up to one of their masterclasses, where you can attempt to put into practice some of the secrets of the mixologists, to create your own take on these and other famous cocktails.
As I said, though the chain is spread across the South of England and beyond, the tiny Covent Garden one is near to my heart, as it is just so comfy - and comfort mixed with cocktails is a fine thing indeed.
