Be At One Cocktail bar mixes up Birmingham with VIP event

Birmingham has long been known as a bustling, lively city, boasting some of the best nightlife in the UK. This week, cocktail bar Be At One in Piccadilly Arcade, did exactly that as VIPs from local businesses and media guests experienced how to throw a great party while doing their bit for the environment, sipping cocktails through fully compostable and biodegradable corn straws. 

National cocktail brand Be At One has remixed their cocktail menu of over 100 cocktails this autumn, inspired by music and lyrics, and on Tuesday 14th November VIP guests at their Birmingham bar were immersed into the brand's philosophy of 'life is what you mix it' as they took part in cocktail games such as ‘Have you got what it shakes?’ getting the whole bar up shaking their cocktail mixers until the last person was standing! 

Linking the cocktails to the music, other games involved ‘name that song’ and ‘scrambled lyrics’ a memorable evening for all that attended this first of several VIP Be At One events around the UK this month.

 Some of the cocktail favourites from the new menu go by the names of ‘Erin Rose’ a creamy concoction with a mix of Jameson Caskmates & Original whiskeys, coffee and ice cream, a take on the infamous frozen Irish Coffee “hangover cure” from the Erin Rose bar in New Orleans. The ‘Banoffee Old Fashioned’ went down hit with ingredients Woodford Reserve Bourbon, white chocolate liqueur, banana syrup and banoffee foam.

 Be At One founder Steve Locke commented: "As part of the brand's revamp Be At One Birmingham, along with the rest of our leading cocktail bar chain of 33 bars across the UK, will be altering the music choice each night based on our clientele that particular evening. We believe that matching the perfect music with the atmosphere of the bar creates the ideal night out.

 As part of our brand shake up we decided that remixing the cocktail menu wasn’t all we could do for the good people of Birmingham and our bars nationwide. By introducing new corn plastic straws which are fully compostable and biodegrade in just eight weeks we're aiming to do our bit for the environment one cocktail at a time!"

 Be At One Birmingham is located in Piccadilly Arcade. For more information visit
