On Thursday 22nd November the #Covhour team were out in force for the VIP opening of The Botanist in Coventry City Centre.
This is an invite that we have all been majorly excited about and we were not disappointed. As you enter through what used to be the old entrance of Cathedral Lanes it is like walking into a new world. Our breath was taken away by the vast size of the venue and the brilliant use of the space.
Step across the bridge that takes you over the stream (yes that’s right, we said stream) that flows around the venue and you greeted by a large bar area and bandstand which will be hosting live music seven nights a week.
The glass roof of the old shopping centre has been given a new lease of life and offers fantastic views of the Cathedral and Trinity spires as you eat and drink.
We were treated to a Prosecco reception and then a selection of cocktails including a RASPBERRY
DISARONNO SOUR… Raspberry purée, lemon juice, pomegranate juice, Disaronno and raspberry
liqueur and a yummy selection of food.
To say that this new venue is a game changer for the nightlife in Coventry is an understatement. The Botanist’s new flagship bar will reverse the tide and will have people flocking into Coventry rather than heading to neighbouring cities. Coupled with the other new restaurants Cathedral Lanes has been given a new lease of life. We can’t wait to return to Coventry’s new restaurant quarter.
