What started out as a quaint idea for a cocktail bar, flourished into a gin and cocktail bar with an impressive selection of over 310 Australian and International gins, making The Botanist the largest gin bar in Australia.

With an extensive cocktail list of your favourites and some of our own creation, The Botanist bar is the perfect place to catch up with some friends over drinks, or have a cheeky cocktail before your meal. 


The Botanist name is a nod to Sir Joseph Banks an English naturalist, botanist and patron of the natural sciences. He took part in Captain Cook's first great voyage which included a trip to Australia. Banks is credited with introducing the eucalyptus, acacia and the genus named after him, Banksia, to the Western world. Around 80 species of plants bear his name.

So here's to you Joseph ....
