With its lively botanical decorations and wooden furniture, its easy to feel as if you're in a spring garden as soon as you step foot in The Botanist. As one location of a popular bar chain, the Botanist in Cardiff is no different from its floral sisters, and incorporates the live music and creative cocktails that made its name.

Unsurprisingly, The Botanist is decorated in the way its name suggests, so expect to see a lot of greenery, garden lights, and wicker furniture. On Friday and Saturday evenings, you can enjoy some live music - and if any potential Welsh musicians are out there, be aware that they recruit new talent on their website. The combination of the cosy instagrammable interiors and the live music creates an upbeat environment that a wide variety of clientele enjoys.

The Botanist's menu continues its fresh and garden-focused theme, with a healthy selection of options for the vegan, vegetarian, and/or gluten free crowd. Check out British classics like the Cumberland Scotch Egg or the Fish and Chips, or try out the bar's fan-favourite Hanging Kebabs. Featuring marinated chicken or chorizo, these kebabs are hung up on a chain so their fresh juices drip onto chips or veggies below. If you have a little one that loves this concept, but may not be ready for the spices, they also have a Hanging Cumberland Sausage on the kids menu.

Adult diners can wash down their meal with a selection of specialty cocktails. The bartender recommends the Botanist Pornstar with vodka, passion fruit liqueur, peashoot and rose cordial, pineapple and Prosecco; the Berry Colada with Bacardi Coconut, coconut purée, pineapple, raspberry liqueur and beetroot; or the Peach Mac Old Fashioned with Maker’s Mark Whisky, Peach and Brookies Macadamia Liqueur. And for those who want to enjoy the pretty drinks without the alcohol, don't worry, there are fun non-alcoholic cocktails on the list as well.
