Cocktails anyone? The Botanist to open at Lincoln’s Cornhill Quarter

This story is over

The Botanist is set to come to The Cornhill Quarter in Lincoln, early 2020.

The new cocktail bar will be in the third phase of The Cornhill Quarter development, sitting opposite the recently refurbished Corn Exchange.

It will be located together with the boutique Everyman Cinema, in a full height glazed unit with external seating area within Exchange Square, which will be a new public space for the city.

The Botanist will transform the space into a botanical haven and offer an experience like no other.

Nestled within walls adorned with trinkets and plants it will be a place to eat and drink.

The collection of botanical cocktails, inspired from resident botanist’s travels across the globe, form an award-winning drinks menu.

For Lincoln’s beer drinkers, over 60 world-class ales have been carefully curated in to The Ale Inventory and each beer has been hand-picked for its different flavours and is a mix of well-known and artisan pours.

The Botanist Lincoln will also bring live music every evening.

This latest announcement follows news that work is close to completion on the second phase of the £70 million Cornhill Quarter redevelopment with Lakeland now open on mid Sincil Street.

The Botanist will sit alongside much loved local retailers as well as previously announced new national names, Everyman, Cosy Club, Moss Bros, Flying Tiger Copenhagen and Thomas Cook.

Chris Hill, CEO of New World Trading Company said: “We can’t wait to open the doors to the people of Lincoln, especially as we know the community here has such a passion for food and drink.

“The combination of award-winning cocktails along with our extensive menu has something for everyone – and we’re positive The Botanist will bring a unique vibe to the city.”

The launch of The Botanist will create new job roles in Lincoln from management, to front of house and kitchen staff.

Tim Bradford, Managing Director at Banks Long & Co, said: “This is a high-quality, exciting brand for The Cornhill Quarter which will further enhance the scheme, and add to this thriving city centre development.

“We have had some fruitful discussions with a number of great brands who have now got Lincoln on their radar.

“We are looking forward to welcoming many more brands for the scheme and announcing more of the line up soon.”

Ursula Lidbetter, Lincolnshire Co-op’s Chief Executive, commented: “As this development progresses we can really see our vision for the heart of Lincoln coming together with a combination of national brands alongside existing and new local businesses.

“The Botanist is a great new name to add to the already exciting mix, and we look forward to welcoming local residents and people from further afield who want to experience a day or night out in our unique city.”
