An Adelaide icon with a great location, Botanic Bar is situated on the corner of East and North Terrace, and has recently gone through a resurgence. With its classic decor, it feels like you’re drinking in an old chateau or private library. One of the oldest hotels in Adelaide, it's the kind of place where you'll find the smaller details of years gone by, like the branded boxes of matches and a properly well stocked cocktail bar - in fact, it is one of the few bars to still supply flaming cocktail. It also features an intimate back bar, stocking only local beers, seeing Botanic Bar suit all types. With plenty of outside seating for ‘people watching’, surrounded by vines and lanterns, this inviting setting attracts a beautiful crowd. Botanic Bar is a great place to start the night, however it is also known for getting line-ups of late, meaning it’s not a bad place to stay on for the night. Friday and Saturday nights are best for this venue.
After months of renovations, Botanic Bar opened their highly anticipated Thai restaurant, Golden Boy, in the old side bar on October 18, 2013. Golden Boy serves delicious Thai food from 5:30pm until late, weekly on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Bookings are necessary for groups of 6 people or more; however, walk-ins are encouraged by the staff. Visit Golden Boy's Facebook page for further information.
