All Bar One is a pub chain of just under 50 bars in the United Kingdom, owned and operated by Mitchells and Butlers plc which was part of the Six Continents group (previously Bass) until 2003.

The concept was designed by Bass as a 'female friendly' bar at a time when many pubs and bars were considered intimidating places for single women to go and drink or eat, hence the huge glass frontage, the open plan space and the bright airy interiors. This followed the lead of existing female friendly bar chains such as Pitcher & Piano and Slug and Lettuce.

The first bar was opened in 1994 in Sutton, London, town centre.[1] As of 2016, there were "close to 50" outlets in the UK, mostly based in Central London however they are expanding throughout the UK as far as Aberdeen, where they are due to open a bar in the new Marischal Square development.[2]
