150 specialty cocktails at Be at One Hammersmith! Say what now? That’s right, this funky Bar has just undergone a £200,000 transformation and has re-opened. It looks very inviting, offering a VERY extensive cocktail list and my god is it captivating.
As someone who struggles with decisions, being told that there are this many on the list felt a little overwhelming. How on earth would I choose a cocktail without reverting back to a ‘safe’ drink? However, in this instance a couple of pages in and I have made my decision. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was calling me… the Irish Disco Biscuit. OMG. Baileys. Crème de menthe. Oreo cookies. Vanilla ice-cream. D.E.V.I.N.E! I am craving it now as I am writing this. It was seriously dessert in a glass and I want more!
I also tried Popster which had popcorn in it… crazy I know but it worked, along with a few other delicious drinks. They have even a page dedicated to healthier options with unrefined sugar and lower alcohol content. You really have to go and see for yourself.
The bartenders are brilliant. They really appeared like they were enjoying themselves, despite being flat out. Some even taking on several orders at the one time and each person received their order as requested. They were friendly, smiling and happy to offer their opinion suggesting something should you not know what you are after. The cocktails are creative, sweet, sour, delicious and affordable. Ranging from £8-11.
The atmosphere is buzzing at Be at One. The surrounding people were there to have fun, laugh, relax with mates and really enjoy themselves. The music variety had me bopping away and reminiscing all night. Some songs I had even forgotten about! I just love when you go somewhere to have a drink and you can really enjoy the music. This is definitely a place you want to visit, although it is not a place to have a quiet conversation. It is a place you want to dance, drink and mingle with friends, or make some new ones like I did!
Don’t forget to make the most of Appi Hour on the Be At One app, offering 2-4-1 cocktails between 5.00pm – 8.00pm Monday to Saturday, and all night on Sundays.
Every Thursday evening between 7.30pm – 10.30pm, a live band will provide non-stop entertainment, playing all of the party classic hits that Be At One is known for. Also offering cocktails master classes should you wish to get creative yourself?
The popular cocktail bar group has also partnered with Malibu and launched a competition to win a five-night stay for two people at the world-famous Ibiza Rocks Hotel, where the White Isle’s original home of live music meets the new home of the pool party. With tickets to the Ibiza Rocks closing party on 21st September, £1,000 spending money and flights from any London airport, guests are guaranteed non-stop fun at this summer’s most anticipated pool party.

Complete the challenges in each stage and upload photo evidence. It’s as easy as that.
