Bar Fly: The Botanist


Amie Barbeler seems to have discovered her hidden green thumb in Kirribilli...



Quite frankly, I'd rather eat a bag of wet hair than potter around a garden any day of the week. Hence I was quite sceptical about how much I was going to enjoy a night out at a botany-themed bar. But, The Botanist, which has drawn its inspiration from the adventures of historical botanist Gerard Fothergill, won me over by successfully showcasing a side of the garden that I can actually get excited by – one that links plants to alcohol and comes in a tall glass.



My date and I kicked off the evening with a few delicious Winter Mules ($17); a flavourful concoction of vodka, lime, blackberry puree and ginger beer. Cocktails in hand, we retreated to a cosy table in one of the low-lit corners and ordered some corn and chorizo croquettes with chipotle mayo ($12) to share. If you're in North Sydney, consider this garden oasis when planning your next after work drinks.
