Absolutely wonderful!!! Happy hour starts at 3!! Need I say more haha. The bar staff are so friendly and helpful. Such awesome music, from old school pop to newer chart toppers. The cocktails were made with such care and were absolutely delicious! I will definitely be coming back here when I am in the area.
Overly crowded, loud and not the kind of crowd one would want to mingle or socialise with - is what I honestly think. I went there about a week before Christmas to wait for a few friends, who were supposed to meet me at Spitalfields Market. They were getting delayed and said "let's meet at Be At One." I arrived and saw lots of people smoking outside, so I decided to go in and order a drink, then wait for my friends. There was a female security guard outside. Quite large build, dark hair tied back. Caucasian, a bit short. She didn't ask me anything and she was just standing there, so I just went in. The place was way too crowded. Over-crowded, I think. Never a good sign. Loud music, and although I was the only one standing at the bar to order, the Barman didn't even look at me and went about clearing things, moving stuff etc. I tried to get his attention, and he saw me but decided to continue what he was doing. This kind of attitude is never good. "I'll come to you once I've finished what I am doing. So you have to wait!" - is what he was basically saying. He should serve the customer first and then continue doing his tasks. Like most venues, the management obviously hasn't provided the staff basic training in customer services. As I was waiting to order a drink another customer sat by the window waved at me, then pointed at the window/glass pane. The security guard was signalling me to come outside, which I thought was rude, as she should have come inside and asked me to come outside. But I guess these people don't know manners and etiquette anyway! Probably not even trained properly before being put on the job as security companies, like a lot of other companies, don't want to spend money on training. Anyway.... I went outside, and she said "No Single Entry!" and when I was about to tell her that I was going to wait for friends, she again, very loudly this time... said "NO SINGLE ENTRY!!!" and before I could say anything, just turned away from me and started talking to someone else. No Single Entry is blatant discrimination. They should not be allowed to do that! I'm part of the local community that lives in the neighbourhood and am involved with local societies as well as local government. I am going to look in to this and see how this issue can be raised. No Single Entry? Ironic, don't you think, given you're named Be At "One!" I was angry at the way I was treated. I will not tolerate discrimination in any way, shape or form. Why let me walk-in, in the first place? Just then, my friends arrived. We could have now gone in, but I decided against it and persuaded them to come to my place instead, getting some wine on the way and then we can have take-away food. Better way to spend an evening with friends than in an overly-crowded bar which clearly puts profit before customer service by cramming in as many people as possible. Plus the rude staff! No, Thank You. I'll spend my money elsewhere. And I shall tell all the neighbours and locals I know, NOT to go to this bar.
