The Botanist, Edinburgh


One of the most beautiful bars in Edinburgh, botanical-themed The Botanist in St James Quarter comes to you from the excellent New World Trading Company.

Littered in greenery, not only is The Botanist a looker from head to toe, they're up for some fun, complete with bingo events on Wednesdays and a regular rotation of live acoustic music to make your night.

The food and drinks menu is to be savoured too, from themed and creative cocktails decked out in fresh fruit and herbs, to a menu of Sunday roasts, their notorious hanging kebabs and 'posh pub' classics.
