It's our late night West End venue!

Situated close to the piazza in London's Covent Garden is our first late night west end venue on Russell Street. This fantastic basement space is warm, intimate and cosy and perfect for any sort of night out - from first date to late night party.

It seems like the only requirement to work here is to be rude and patronising. From the bar staff to the waitresses everybody seems to be more interested in providing the worst possible service. We had a table reserved for 4 people. We arrive at the Bar and there are only two chairs around the smallest possible table. After 11... More

Not the place to go if you want to talk to the people with you. Drinks are very expensive, even with happy hour.

Be at one or beatone is right now the best cocktail chain in London. I have been to many branches and each has its own character and all have been great... Well maybe not the city branch but that's probably because of the uptight suits😉 The drinks are just unbeatable with lots of variety. You know that the staff do... More

This is a great place to start your night out with friends, especially if you arrive during happy hour where you buy one cocktail and get the same one again for free. The vibe is pretty relaxed and the bar staff are always entertaining. It can get busy at times but that just goes to show how popular this place... More

Great club let down by door staff. Been here a few times before and was waiting in the queue at the weekend with friends and for no apparent reason the door man came over to 3 of us and asked if we were on the guest list as it's guest list only.....well that would stack up if you hadn't just...

Visited for a birthday in March, had a fantastic time. Staff very knowledgeable about the drinks they serve and considering how busy it was the cocktails came around in very good time.

Second time we have been here once last year. Both times amazing, Cocktails to die for and bar service very good. Prices also very cheap and "happy hour" seems to be most of the night

We went out to drink a bit and dance a lot - and that's what we got. The music was a bit loud and we didn't know most of the songs, but the atmosphere was great and we had a great time. One main downside is that there is no real beer; there's one weird Italian beer with wine and... More

Thank you Ethan for your constructive feedback. Throughout all of the Beatone bar's we aim to provide an eclectic fun mix of music, all of which can create a great atmosphere.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
