Be@1 is one of the best cocktail bars in London.  I celebrated my 30th birthday in the Be@1 in Putney.  There are 12 cocktail of these bars around London offering 2 4 1 on their drinks 5 – 8pm everyday. Then Monday-Wednesday, two cocktails from the menu are £5 each all night.

The opening times of the cocktail bars vary according to location.  Balham, Battersea Rise, Clapham Common, Hammersmith, Putney, Monument and Shoreditch have a late night licence on Friday and Saturday,closing at 2am, whereas Covent Garden and Soho close at 12:30am.


There are more than 14 different types of cocktails. Be@1 have the champagne and sparkling wine, mojito and caiprinha, iced tea, martinis, slings, sours and collins, daiquiris, discos, ice-cream, shooters, long and short and non alcoholic cocktails. The offer means you can get two drinks for the price of one, so BOGOFF – buy one, get one free. But they have to be the same drinks. It’s best if you buy with a friend, then you do not have to drink the same cocktail twice, unless you like it.

Recommended Cocktails

Rasberry, Passion Fruit, Mango and Strawberry daiquiris are the best. The Irish disco biscuit is also a great cocktail. It consists of Baileys with ice cream and an oreo cookie on the top. But don’t take my word for it, visit your nearest Be@1 and enjoy cocktails for half the price.

Going out in London does not always have to be expensive. These are just some of the cocktail bars in London, why not visit one this weekend? Or even for a few drinks after work?
