One of the UK’s most prominent city-centre bars, All Bar One is defined by its uncluttered elegance, design and urban buzz. Contemporary lighting design has been critical to All Bar One’s ongoing success.

Working with the brand team and the energy manager, Lietcorp’s light designers supplied the chain with two types of interior LED lighting that have seamlessly replaced existing light fittings in almost all locations, producing excellent energy savings. The full roll-out has now been completed, with interior LED lighting installed in almost 50 bars.

Thanks to our sole use of single-bin Cree chips, Lietcorp has replicated the light quality of incumbent lighting and retained All Bar One’s unique ambience in all locations.
