Food And Drink: Launch date for Sheffield's Garden Inspired Bar
A new opening date for Sheffield’s latest bar and restaurant - where cocktails are served in plant pots and food on trowels - has been revealed.
The Botanist is to take over three floors of a Grade II listed building, which formerly housed Popolo, in Leopold Square in October, although it was said to be opening in August.
Up to 100 jobs are to be created by the venue, which will have an outside seating area, and offer private dining space for cocktails or ale masterclasses.
Local gins will also feature behind the bar, which is the tenth Botanist site across the UK, following others in Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle.
Chris Hill, chief executive officer at The New World Trading Company which is to operate the venue, said “We are incredibly excited to bring The Botanist concept to Sheffield.
“The character and atmosphere of Leopold Square is the perfect location for our brand and we look forward to making Sheffield our next home.”
The Botanist will also have a deli, rotisserie, barbecue and live music.
We welcome you to a world of exploration under the wonderful and peculiar concepts of The Oast House, The Botanist, The Smugglers Cove and The Trading House; offering curious cocktails, a soon-to-be-world-famous selection of craft beers and ales, Champagne and wine. With food inspired by the deli, rotisserie and BBQ and live music every night, an adventure like no other is always guaranteed. The stories of our journey are told here…
