Be At One Monument Reopening


A few weeks back, I was invited by the team at Be At One Oxford Street to join them for Quiz Night celebrating the launch of their new cocktails. I put quite a bit of the night on my Insta Story, but I didn't do a blog post as there were quite a few of us and the table was constantly full of yummy cocktails, so I didn't really get an opportunity for nice photos (although my friend Maddie took some on her camera, perhaps I should ask her if they're any good...). I also had a chance to meet one of the lovely girls who are behind their PR - hello Kara if you're reading this - and it was truly a great night. I've been a fan of Be At One since I've started going to bars, so being invited to their events is honestly amazing to me!

On Thursday however, I was yet again invited to attend an event hosted by them. This time, it was to the re-opening of the bar at Monument. This is one I haven't been to before it went under renovation, so I can't comment on how much has changed, but I can say that right now everything looks fabulous, which isn't really that surprising since they put £300,000 into it. It's also very easy to find, as it's around the corner from the station.

When we went in we could still smell the fresh paint (I really don't mind) and it felt really nice to be one of the first ones there. Alongside promoting the reopening of the bar, they were also focusing on promoting one of the new drinks - Blue Steel. As I'm a massive Pornstar Martini fan (basic, I know), it shouldn't be shocking to anyone that Blue Steel is creeping up to the top of my favourites list. It's a mix of Beefeater gin, Prosecco Santome, blue curacao, white peach liquor, egg white and lemon. It is divine.


One of the reasons Be At One is my favourite cocktail bar is because there's something for everyone. Their menu boasts over 100 different drinks, and I know what you're thinking - yes, it can be difficult to choose one. So, their brilliant team has made it easier for us by adding a feature called 'Drinkr' into the Be At One app. Think of it as a cocktail cupid of a sort. You swipe as you would on Tinder, answering a few questions, and you receive a cocktail tailored to you based on your answers. It's pretty accurate. There are also in-app promotions, and it's handy to stay on top of what's going on in the Be At One world.

An offer that they currently have on, not only for app users, is a £5 offer on their Blue Steel and Banoffee Old Fashioned cocktails. I myself haven't tried the BOF, but if you're a fan of banoffee and the traditional Old Fashioned, I really don't think you can go wrong here. If you're anything like me I also recommend the Kiss from a Rosé, Patron & Saint, Erin Rose (ice cream cocktail, yes please!) and Buenot - a creamy cocktail with, yep, you've guessed it, a Kinder Bueno!

If you haven't been to Be At One before - first of, where have you been?! Secondly, I honestly recommend checking it out. The cocktails are great, the bar staff is always the nicest and great fun and the music is on point, too. I'd also like to thank the Be At One staff and their PR team for inviting me, yet again, to a fantastic night!
