The atmosphere was great especially towards the last week in December leading up to Christmas. It wasn't too overcrowded and the music was really good. Hats off to the bar staff. They are really enthusiastic and very fast with service. Overall I would definitely recommend this bar. Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2017-12-21

Disappointing experience overall. I had thought that given we had booked an area we would recieve a certain level of service however other than ordering drinks there was no staff interaction. The bar staff don't seem to be aware of the £25 deposit/credit policy which meant ordering drinks took nearly 10 mins. Atmosphere was uncomfortable with several tables full of people shouting, screaming and swearing the F and C bomb. It wasn't even as if this was late in the night it was just after 7pm. We were looking for a nice enjoyable pre-meal drink so in the future we will look elsewhere from Be at One. Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2017-12-23

Other people had taken our reserved and paid for tables. They refused to move, staff refused to help. It was very disappointing and we left without having a drink and did not receive a refund. The most expensive night I NEVER had!!! Sean Mccarthy Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2017-12-21

The bar in Russell Street is fantastic. All be at one bars are amazing and the cocktails are awsome. And every time I have been to one it has been one of the best nights ever. The booking experience however wasn't great. The party bookings used to be directly through be at one and were quick and easy to complete - never had an issue. Now all the bookings need to go through 'design my night' and the customer service isn't great really, I found the person I was dealing with rude and really lacking in customer service skills. The new booking process is really restrictive for how many hours you can have a table for also. Whether this is to do with the bar or design my night - I don't know. But you used to be able to book a table all evening. Now you can only book one for 4 hour slots, if you want any more you need to put down a really ridiculous amount as a minimum spend. Due to the potential loss earnings by not being able to give the table to another group for 4 hours I assume. I accept that. However kicking people off there table not even 30 seconds after the allocated time is over and then REMOVING the table and chairs so they can extend there dancefloor is very poor. The table wasn't even near the dancefloor! This just made us annoyed and leave for another bar. Spending money this bar could have had elsewhere. I won't be booking anything with one of these bars again purely due to the involvement with design my night. Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2017-12-16

i cannot leave any positive review for our Friday night visit to your bar. SIX of us were given the smallest ( tall) table in the corner by the stairs as you come down on the left- NOT A TABLE TO SIT AT- at best a lean to! This was ridiculous as was the gangway for people going to the cloakroom and the side of the bar!. people were using our stools for their coats and leaving their handbags an belongings on the floor around us- therefore leaving no room to even stand never mind walk or dance. At one point one of your coordinators actually told ME to move as I was on a reserved table, to which I told her that it WAS MY reservation. it became very claustrophobic and we decided to leave- when retrieving our credit card we were told that there was still £31.00 on the tab which we would loose, we DID loose it, because we could not face being in there even to finish our first drink. The most HORRENDOUS time spent in there and we were only in there for about 20 minutes! I think you should address the table situation and realise that a group of 6 people cannot be standing at a lean to table tucked in as a spare in the corner of a very busy area. Surely there must be a limit on how many people you are able to cater for- and believe me there was no more room in that place at 9.15 pm. I have posted a 1 star rating because it would not post my review without a rating but believe me I do not think our time there warranted even a half star rating at all!

Came her for my boyfriends birthday. Great cocktails and friendly and helpful staff. As always, the cocktails were great and the music lively. This Be at One has much more a club feel. It can get quite busy, with not much space to dance but is a good place to end the night. Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2016-03-11

The night started off really well the music was good the bar was busy, we were all having a great time. Then that's where is stopped......around 12.30 the table next to us where trying to muscle in on our booth the bouncer with them was being pushy and then asked me to take my friend outside we were both asking why and just pushed outside and then said we can't return we asked for a reason for this and they just ignored and blanked us, the rest of our party then joined us outside and told we had to leave!! The only reason we could come up with is the table next to us are spending more money than us and they wanted our space and us out. RUDE PUSHY bouncers. We won't be retuning.

Not the best night I'm afraid to say. We booked a table near to the bar for around 20 people, but when we arrived we were taken to a table near the dance floor. There was a hen party next to us and all I can say is that a couple of the were just vile and rude! The place is far too busy for big groups and is very hot!

The cocktails tasted amazing and there was a great selection. The bar attenders were very talented. Didn't like the taste in music playing as felt it was a bit retro considering the bar was quite upbeat. But enjoyed the experience :) Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2016-10-12

Great bar for a social meet up! The perfect atmosphere for a Friday drink after work and a night out with friends on a Saturday. This was my second visit with my friends and we had a great night. The bar staff were friendly and the people I corresponded with via email were really helpful in getting me a table and entry for the night. I've started to make this one of my 'go to' bars when in town. I'd recommend this place to anyone who has friends and wants a lively bar to hang out at in Central London Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2016-10-01

First time visit to this Be At One and I loved it! Really nice basement bar with friendly staff... and the drinks were pretty good to! Some places seem to uncut you on the alcohol content but I could taste it in every drink I had. I reserved a couple of tables for the night as I had read that the place can get busy at the end of the week and tables are hard to find and I think I made a good decision doing that! My friends had a great time and everything was fantastic. The only criticism I'd have is with the security at the door, they came across a little less menacing and could put off some people going there. That aside, it is a great bar hidden away from the rest of Covent Garden and I'd recommend it. I'm sure I'll probably go again very soon! Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2016-09-23

Booked a masterclass at Be At One Coven Garden Russell Street, the bartenders Andreas & Carlos were great hosts & overall the masterclass was so much fun. - Would definitely recommend! Booked a booth for the rest of the evening for my party of 15 (for my 21st birthday), happy hour was very good value & the cocktails were amazing! However, at 7pm I was told rather rudely in front of my guests that my table was now booked out for another party and that I would need to vacate. The woman was extremely rude and did not have any patience in explaining the situation. When I had called the bar to book this for my 21st, I was assured my booking of the booth was for the whole evening & I wanted to ensure the evening would go smoothly. On a Saturday night the bar obviously gets extremely busy so there were no other free tables or spaces for 15 of us to continue enjoying our evening and therefore this woman was effectively asking us all to leave. The bar manager was very good and after about 20 minutes, resolved the situation by allocating my party a new booth until 10pm, and therefore in my opinion the evening was salvaged. I feel the bar should ensure that for any bookings of tables that result in losing the allocated space during the evening, that this should be made explicitly clear as mine and my party's experience was tarnished with miscommunication on the bar's behalf. Overall a great, lively, fun bar, but the organisation staff were very disappointing and so let the overall experience of the bar down. Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2016-08-20

Amazing night out. The night was started off with a lovely welcome and friendly door staff. The host showed us to our table and looked after us. Our champagne was carried over to our table with sparklers and the staff were love. Great atmosphere and music. The bar staff were incredible and really made our night. They were dancing, fun, energetic and most importantly made us delicious cocktails. Thank you and we'll be back again. Visited Be At One Covent Garden Russell Street on 2016-07-30

I went here on a work night out on 2/12/2015. The booking was very easy and received prompt responses. On the day got a text confirming booking and deposit. The bar staff was very friendly and during happy hour even Champagne cocktails were on BOGOF. Music good and the crowd decent. The door staff were friendly gentle giants. We had a very good time and will definitely come back.

Another really solid showing from the Be At One guys. There's definitely more glamorous places in Covent Garden but you know what you're getting here: loads of cocktails, an after work crowd and plenty of Michael Jackson on the speakers. Good fun all round.

This is by far the best Be at One venue I have been too! I booked a table for 25 people, and on arrival found that they have reserved one whole side of the bar for us - there was plenty of room for everyone. The staf was supper friendly and the music was a good mix! I would recommend anyone wanting a good night out with friends! Definitely take advantage of the Happy Hour!

Surprised in a good way about this place. I thought it would be a bit chainey being a be at one but it was pretty cool and a bit of a hidden gem as its a basement in the madness of covent garden. I'd say this is a good to know if you are in the area
