What they say:

A brand new venue by the Manchester empire behind drinking dens such as The Alchemist and Artisan, Living Ventures have taken to Deansgate for their next city endeavour. Set to refurbish Label bar and transform it into The Botanist, Living Ventures will mould this space into a venue not too dissimilar to Chesire's very own The Botanist with its British style whimsy and dashes of urban style agriculture. Set to open in July 2014, The Botanist will be a wholly unique addition to the Deansgate realm.

What we say:

Having had a look in on Cheshire's Botanist, I can safely say that this will be one darling drinking endeavour. With Living Ventures already having secured some of the finest drinking dens in Manchester, The Botanist could be an even more home-spun addition to their liquid roster with what's set to be a plot of 'urban agriculture'. And whilst low hanging plant pots, rustic wares and may seem wholly out of place in Deansgate, it's great to see a venue bite the bullet and bring their whimsical wares to such a party plot. Will it fit in? We're excited to see just how.
