Continuing the group’s New York district design trend, the venue on Caledonian Road will be designed in the style of the city’s Brooklyn cocktail bars, featuring industrial reclaimed lighting, leather banquettes and booth seating.

The 120-cover site, which also features a heated outdoor space, will serve cocktails from Be At One’s brand handbook the Little Blue Book of Cocktails, which has recently been revised.

Rhys Oldfield, co-founder of Be At One with Steve Locke and Leigh Miller, said: “Kings Cross has undergone a lot of development in and has recently welcomed some exciting brands, of which Be At One is happy to be part of.

“This new site is ideally located at the heart of the community and following an extensive refurbishment will serve customers with our proven blend of great cocktails, friendly bartenders and classic tunes.”

Following strong trading results in May, Be At One intends to open a further three sites this year and are currently looking for another site in the West End.

In its final results for the year ending 4 April 2011, the group saw sales increase by 23 per cent to £8.3m, with operational profit at sites open for more than a year up by 9.4 per cent.
