Have your say

the cocktail offering in the city centre has just been taken up a spirit level or two.

Be At One launches a second bar on Boar Lane tonight and boasts a drinks list with over 100 weird and wonderful concoctions and City Buzz has been for a sneak preview - and of course a Champagne Cocktail.

The brand has taken on the premises that used to be Dish, and has a slightly different vibe to the one that is in the first bar in Millennium Square.

Be At One Boar Lane is smaller, but certainly packs punch, going back to being a bar which focuses on doing drink well.

In addition to your classic Cosmopolitan, Margarita, Porn Star Martini and a straight up daiquiri there are some you certainly won’t have tried before.

French House is a new one mixed up with strawberry-infused Beefeater gin, lime juice and tarragon syrup and Apple Pie is a shot of Patron Silver Tequila, apple pie syrup and lime juice.

Then there is the ultimate decadence.

The Bueno which is white chocolate liqueur, salted caramel kahlua, white Kinder Bueno and ice-cream - in a glass. Look out for similar variations with Oreo and Reese Peanut butter cups.

The second site comes about as the brand wants to tap into a new footfall hotspot driven by the growing success of the city’s nightlife scene.

Co-founder, Steve Locke said: “Millennium Square was our first site in the North, it was an obvious choice for us because of Leeds’ thriving independent cocktail scene and the city’s unpretentious attitude to fun. We were welcomed by the cocktail drinking fraternity and have enjoyed a fantastic two years here.

“When the opportunity arose to take another site on Boar Lane we jumped at it. The site is between the train station and Trinity and allows us to introduce the party to a different part of town.”
