The Botanical Garden has once more shone as the jewel in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle, an intimate and idyllic hideaway a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s a verdant space where time slows, drinks flow and some of the region’s finest selectors and artists perform.
And after what has been its finest summer to date during its 4th season, blessed with many weeks of sizzling sunshine throughout many long sultry days, now the team look ahead to the closing party on Saturday 29th September as the season begins to turn.
It’s going to be a proper send off, with a fireworks spectacular with free ice cream donut sandwiches from Hotbox Donuts, a selection of DJs who have sound-tracked the beatific setting for the last few months, and of course copious amounts of fine gin, artisanal cocktails and delicious food.
This is the last week to experience the magic The Botanical Garden is infused with both day and night. So as the nights draw in a little faster and the wind blows a touch harder, drinks like the New Bird Winter Warmer are essential, with cherry-infused gin, hot ginger ale and fruits creating a sumptuous drink to chase away the cold.
Gin is always the focus at The Botanical Garden, with a mesmerising range of drinks to savour, with a wider palette of flavours and styles sourced from around the world.
This week, from Monday to Thursday there’s a soup loves sandwich deal from midday – 8pm to keep cockles and hearts warmed. There are toasties galore and plenty of hearty snacks too.
So now the month is winding down and the sun’s touch dimming, The Botanical Garden remains a little piece of sanctuary in the city, a sublime escape tucked away down a narrow street in the shadow of the looming Anglican Cathedral in the background.
The urban oasis attracts a diverse demographic reflective of the thriving Liverpool itself, all drawn to the wonderful al-fresco setting in the heart of its creative quarter. Come and join them for the final week of the year.
The Botanical Garden is open midday – 11pm all week, depending on the weather.
