You can do that effect in Lightroom.
There are two key sections, in the Develop Module go to Tone Curve and click on the arrows next to Channels RGB, you can then split the channels, adjust the curves for the different channels and that is the core of it. The second important bit is Split Toning, play around in there with the sliders.
After that in the Basic Panel raise the contrast and clarity, and lastly play with the WB and Tone.
Here is a quick before and after using the method I just suggested in Lightroom. If you get a set of settings you like you can save them as a preset so it is just one click to make any other picture the same.
