Tucked away in St Martins Square is The Bottle Garden – a tranquil, green paradise for lovers of good drinks, good décor and a good time.
How best to describe the atmosphere of this self-appointed urban garden bar? Imagine the serene feeling of relaxing in your garden with a great drink, coupled with twinkling fairy lights and flickering candles and the inner warmth of knowing that you can linger here, whatever the weather.
The walls and tables are covered with lush greenery, including trees and herbs in pots, and even plants hanging from the ceiling. At Christmas the place is a woodland wonderland, with twinkling trees and the woody scent of the festive season in the air. Add to that the exposed brickwork and the ambient lighting - including a copper piping light feature – this is a wonderful place for a social gathering, special occasion or romantic evening.
The drinks match the high standard set by the décor, and indeed are a continuation of the theme. The varied cocktail menu is based around flavoursome drinks featuring a mixture of heady botanicals – this herb infusions, edible flowers and rose-scented tipples. If you’re after something familiar you’re in luck, as they include all the classics you’ve come to know and love on their menu.
Their small but carefully selected food menu is full of sharing platters, antipasti and light bites – adding to that outdoor picnic vibe and encouraging social eating as well as drinking.
If you like some soulful beats to go along with your smooth drinks, don’t miss their programme of Jazz music on selected Sunday afternoons.
