Be At One Manchester
Steve, Leigh and Rhys met working together in the West End of London in the early 1990s…
In the late ‘90s, the cocktail bar industry was becoming saturated with bars which focused more on style than substance, so they decided to give it a go for themselves. They threw in their jobs, each got themselves a car loan and a credit card, and bought a run down Indian restaurant on Battersea Rise. Over the following seven weeks they created a cocktail bar.
Be At One Battersea Rise opened its doors at the end of May 1998 and was an instant success. This was followed by the opening of many more Be At Ones… the rest, as they say, is history.
