The Botanist – A Must Visit If You Are In Coventry…

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.

Book your table today you won't be disappointed. Download the Botanist App now to get great discounts too.

#Covhour was started on 22nd August 2013 and was the first online networking hour for Coventry.  It was set up with the aim to help local businesses to connect, to share information and to support each other.  Now with a community of more than 10,500 followers in less than four years, we can safely say that this has been achieved!   


The unique thing about this online networking group is that it was started by a local Coventry woman Joanne Brooks and unlike most other groups she does not run her own business she is employed by a business in the City.  When asked about the reason she started #Covhour Joanne replied "I enjoy connecting people and I am so proud of the city having lived here all my life, that I wanted to do my bit and to give something back.  I have met so many wonderful people through #Covhour and although it is a big commitment running the networking hour every week, I just love it!"  

Joanne continues to host #Covhour every Thursday between 8 pm and 9 pm and so why not join in this Thursday?
