Botany.

 

Botany is an upmarket cocktail lounge that opened in March 2018. Located in an intimate space across the road from Copper Club Newlands, Botany is beautifully decorated along a botanical theme. The bar offers an extensive selection of gin as well as bubbly, whisky, vodka, tequila and craft beer as well as wine by the glass.

A tapas menu incorporating tasty nibbles from prawns to zucchini fritters offers a range of delectable snacks for a light lunch or as the perfect accompaniment to after-work drinks.

Botany is becoming a regular among locals looking for something different and tasteful in the exclusive southern suburbs. It is often the first stop before dinner at Patina Steak and Fine Wine next door or the go-to spot for a digestif after the main meal.
