Be At One secures Bournemouth site

Published:  17 May, 2017

Cocktail bar group Be At One is set to open its second bar on the South Coast, in Bournemouth, as part of its national expansion strategy.

The group, which currently operates 32 venues across the country, has completed a deal on a site on Richmond Hill adjacent to the city’s market square and short distance from the seafront. Be At One’s other South Coast site is in Brighton.

Bournemouth had long been on Be At One’s target list of locations, said director, Steve Locke.

“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.”

The new venue, which will undergo an extensive refurbishment before opening in August with its new Be At One identity, is on the site of a former nightclub, with basement trading space and initial capacity for 200 guests.

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