Be At One is at one on Wimpole Street

August 29, 2013

Be At One is to open its eighteenth cocktail bar after DCL – the leisure specialists – acquired The Wimpole near Oxford Street. The dynamic bar brand paid an undisclosed sum for the approximately 1,250 sq ft ground floor and basement unit.

Since opening its first bar on Battersea Rise in 1998, Be At One has grown to become one of London’s most popular bar chains. It opened its first outlet outside the Capital – in Reading – earlier this year. The Wimpole Street bar will open later this year.

Jonathan Moradoff, Associate Director at Davis Coffer Lyons commented: “Be At One is an incredibly successful brand and, thanks to the recent investment from Piper Private Equity, it has continued to expand rapidly- firmly establishing itself as a key part of the capital’s drinking scene. Its latest bar is in a sought after location, which is underserviced in the bar sector and will benefit greatly from the area’s many residents, workers and – of course, due to its proximity to Oxford Street – shoppers.”
