New Edinburgh bar and restaurant The Botanist officially opens with a launch party

A swanky new bar and restaurant in Edinburgh city centre has celebrated its opening with a launch party event – and judging by the fun guests were having, it’s sure to be a huge hit with locals.

The Botanist, located at St James Quarter, is a stunning edition to the Capital’s nightlife scene, and as well as serving up delicious food and ‘botany-inspired’ cocktails, the venue will host live music events and family events.

Inside, the space is decorated with lots of greenery and beautiful floral arrangements, while there is also an outdoor terrace to enjoy during the warmer months.
