Description

A cool cocktail cavern, known for having some of the best happy hours in the business, Be At One is a firm favourite on the Reading liquid scene thanks to their lush concoctions and service orientated atmosphere.

Sticking with the classic Be At One theme, this Reading bar is a cocktail charmer of lush booths, their trademark blue and a fully stocked back-bar, all set across two floors. A must-try weekend spot for cocktails with friends and your beau alike, Be At One are all about cocktails and partying alike. Don't doubt that these bartenders are also some of the most raucous in the business TOO, as climbing aboard the bar top certainly doesn't tend to go amiss. 

While proud purveyors of the party, it's cocktails where Be At One shine. While classics are easily rustled up, why not try one of their inherently unique concoctions in the shape of their Oreo and ice cream laced 'Irish Disco Biscuit' or their 'Wild Tea and Elderflower Martini'? Don't forget their happy hour too, as these sweet cocktail treats come in at rock bottom prices for nearly three hours every day. 

There’s no better venue to host your Christmas party than Be At One! Their friendly team will cater for your bespoke needs with our range of packages – so fill in an enquiry form now to get in touch!

Also, don’t forget to get booked in early for New Year’s Eve! It’s the biggest night of the year and known to be a sell-out!

Apart from some problems with the booking part, the actual night was amazing! The class was so much fun and surprised at how many drinks you get and get to make! It was for my birthday and I can say that I had a very special night and would recommend it to anyone! visited Be At One Reading on 20 May 2017

Overall it was a good experience, however I booked a table for 8 but only got a small table right next to the door which didn't leave us enough room at all. We kept getting hassled to do reviews online as well. A couple of us did them as we were told we'd get a free cocktail out of it that night but that wasn't the case. visited Be At One Reading on 12 May 2017

At first we were given an area which was just about big enough to fit the party. However we were asked to move downstairs due to someone in a wheelchair booked a table and obviously couldnt get downstairs, so we swapped with them. Downstairs was much better and we had a great booth. We should have been down here at first. I was told when i booked it would have been downstairs aswell. Other then that it is a great venue with great drinks and a great atmosphere. Bar staff are really helpful and have a good laugh. visited Be At One Reading on 06 May 2017

Not prepared for our party. Ran out of pins colada mix an hour in, staff were off there game. We're told to fit 8 people on one tiny table despite booking and paying for 8 people. Normally a great place but unfortunately bit of a disaster this time visited Be At One Reading on 30 Apr 2017

We were told the appi hour was not allowed as it was a bank holiday. When I got home I checked the main website which was actually promoting the use of the appi hour until 10pm on Sunday so disappointed with that as it meant we cut out night short due to costs. visited Be At One Reading on 30 Apr 2017

I saw I could book some space in a downstairs room so went in a week beforehand to see it and liked what I saw. So I booked that online and told everyone where we would be. When I got there on the evening I was told that they never open downstairs till 9 so I had a row of little tables upstairs. It was fine though a bit too noisy for us. But I should have been told when I booked (I put in times for the booking). Also I suppose I thought it would be a little quieter downstairs although may have been wrong with that. Night was great fun with cheap cocktails (happy hour) that were flamboyantly created. Just wrongly set expectations. visited Be At One Reading on 28 Apr 2017

I really enjoyed the time we had booked at Be At 1 for my Hen do. We hired the provate room and the bar staff was great and a real credit to Be At 1 Reading. The cocktails are always good and well worth the visit. visited Be At One Reading on 22 Apr 2017

Quinn was fabulous. We had such a great experience at the cocktail master class and the staff just made it more enjoyable! We weren't planning on coming back for the evening but as we were offered the booth, we returned and danced the night away! Would definitely recommend (have done so already!) and would love to come back and do it again! Thank you very much, Claire Appleby visited Be At One Reading on 21 Apr 2017

Outstanding afternoons entertainment, our host Quinn was exceptional, funny, knowledgeable, generous and very sociable but without coming across preachy about the cocktails, understanding that everyone has individual tastes...my wife loved it -it was her 50th Birthday, and got quite drunk...all six of us enjoyed very much indeed....Good luck to Quinn in his forthcoming competition and wedding to his fiancé...God help her!! visited Be At One Reading on 08 Apr 2017

I would not rate my visit highly on this occasion. We arrived a few minutes late to our table, which was clearly labelled and not being used, yet despite us being late it had not been cleared of glasses or wiped and as such was really sticky and we had to get rid of the glasses ourselves. The Be At One Appy Hour App did not work on any of our phones despite having full signal, it was just constantly load which was disappointing and meant we could not use any drinks deals. I booked the table as I had friends visiting, but neither of them were impressed with my choice of venue and couldn't see why I had previously raved about it. visited Be At One Reading on 31 Mar 2017

I feel that no review is going to truely express how amazing this bar is! It exceeded all my expectations and my birthday night was definitely one to remember! From the perfect table setting, the delicious cocktails, to the fantastic music and not to forget the simply incredible bar staff... namely Jake and Ox (Mykle). They absolutely made the night and I can't thank them enough! It's so nice to see people behind a bar that actually seem to be enjoying their job and take pleasure in making drinks to perfection and ensuring people have an awesome night out... what absolute Gems! I will be 100% recommending this bar and coming back for more... I only wish I lived closer!! We intended to go to the bar to start the night and move on later but this place was just so good I never wanted to leave and was sad to see the night come to an end!! Thank you so much be at one, Reading!! visited Be At One Reading on 18 Feb 2017

I was so disappointed with this cocktail masterclass. We were promised fun games, learning of cocktail history and small nibbles, yet all we received were the bartenders names and two cocktails each... organising a hen party was stressful enough, let alone dissapointing all the hens who thought they were getting one thing and got another. We were also promised a reserved table for the night which we didn't get then had to argue our case with the manager who said there was nothing he could do even though we booked it 6 months in advance! After a while (45 minutes) he did give us a table free and a couple of shots free, but I still don't expect to be this let down for something we payed £400 for!! Not happy :( visited Be At One Reading on 04 Feb 2017

Disappointed with it. Half the party didn't come in and had to go elsewhere as the bouncer wouldn't allow one member of the party in. We had been to coconut for a meal and wanted to end with you. Wasn't allowed my £25 to go elsewhere so reluctantly stayed to spend it. Music was dissapointing - totally different to a Saturday night. A 'regular' when in town, that won't be again :0( visited Be At One Reading on 03 Feb 2017

I had a great night, music was great and the areas reserved was perfect however I was told by Kimberlee that she would be contacting me prior to my party just to make sure that all was ok but she never did plus I asked if I could have a smaller bottle of Prosecco and beer but on the night I was told that wasn't an option - it didn't ruin my evening in the slightest however communication needs to be improved between head office and the bars. A barman introduced himself to me and said if I had any issues to speak to him plus the bouncers were great and asked if I had had a good night so was good that they knew who I was - its the little details that make a good night! visited Be At One Reading on 14 Jan 2017
