Bar-restaurant operator New World Trading Company (NWTC) will open a Botanist site in the St James Quarter area of Edinburgh later this year.

The Botanist, which is renowned for its botanical themed interiors, quirky cocktails and signature hanging kebabs, will move into St Andrews Hall at St James Quarter in Edinburgh, taking 11,400sq ft of space of its 1.7m sq ft retail-led capacity.

The new site will be a debut for The Botanist in Scotland, with doors are expected to open later this year, although an exact opening date is yet to be confirmed.

Hugely exciting

It is set to join food and beverage operators including Bonnie & Wild Scottish Marketplace, Wingstop and Bross Bagels.

NWTC chief operating officer Natasha Waterfield said: “Bringing our unique concept to Scotland for the first time is hugely exciting moment for the business.

“Finding the right space in any location is paramount and St James Quarter is an innovative development that aligns with our brand and proposition. We can’t wait for the residents of Edinburgh, as well as the many tourists that visit the area, to experience our one-of-a-kind offer at The Botanist.”

Landmark signing

Ed Corrigan at St James Quarter added: “The Botanist is a landmark signing for us, and this is reflected by the flagship location they will be occupying in St Andrews Hall. We’ve made a concerted effort to bring together a great mix of distinctive and current brands to St James Quarter and The Botanist will further help reinforce the reputation of the development as the definitive lifestyle district in Edinburgh.”
