The Botanist // Leeds

The Botanist, based on the side of Leeds Trinity mall is an underground pub and deli restaurant that presents a beautifully natural feeling and warmth.

My first visit to The Botanist left me in the open air section under an outdoor heater tasting some very strange beers and cocktails that make the venue stand out from regular bars. On my second and third visits I was drawn inside where I genuinely felt like I’d landed in Middle Earth - Delighted! 

The overall decor plays on a horticulture theme and various cabinets around the bar contain strange looking objects whilst the walls are covered in rusted garden tools and technical drawings of plant life.

I’ll post more shots from The Botanist over the next few days. Thank you again to the staff for allowing me in with my camera, especially Laura, Daniel and Lewis!
