Be At One Co-founder and Director Steve Locke said: “We’re really excited to have secured this prominent site in the heart of Bournemouth, the area has long been on our target list and we are keen to be an active part of the Bournemouth and Dorset community.
The area is vibrant and has benefited from significant investment in recent times which, in turn, has brought a great buzz to the centre from locals and tourists alike.
Our new site will very much have a classic Be At One feel to it and we are aiming to generate the unique atmosphere that we’re renowned for. We’re eager to get the site open as we move into summer and we are looking forward to a busy few months. Everyone is welcome at Be At One and our aim is to deliver a great experience with high-quality cocktails, a warm, friendly service, in a fun atmosphere.”
Said Steve Hughes, Bournemouth Town Centre Business Improvement District Manager, said, “We are delighted that such a strong brand has decided to invest in the heart of Bournemouth. It will add to the mix of bars and restaurants at the bottom of Richmond Hill which has seen significant investment over the last year with new apartments and office space now complete.
The town centre is really vibrant, footfall is up 13% year to date so I’m not surprised businesses such as Be at One wish to come here.”
