Botànic Bar Cafè Review

The name Bòtanic might make you think of the English word ‘botanical’ and it should. As Bòtanic is located in the centre of Eixample (Barcelona’s gay district), it’s a popular place to be. It’s great to be in the centre but it can be hard to get away from noise, streets, cars, you name it. Bòtanic has a garden!

It’s a lovely little space to drink in peace, well, depending on who else is there! It won’t be much of a gamble though, the kind of people you can expect to meet are the same crowd which frequent other Eixample hotspots (all in Barcelona Gay Escape): loving, friendly and non-judgmental. If only the whole world were one giant Eixample. So yes, the garden and the people are more than enough reasons to come here.

There’s more. We love the staff who work here. They’re friendly and welcoming (okay, so are the clientele) and, to us, this shows more. It shows it’s a happy place to work and, from everyone else’s point of view, a happy place to be. It has an upbeat but slow pace. If that makes sense? Maybe happy relaxation is a better way of putting it. Peace and quiet is great but peace, quiet and happiness is even better!

They have reasonably priced drink and they reasonably priced food as well. Food? Where did that come from? They actually call themselves a “café bar” and rightly so. You’ll love their food, you’ll love their drink, you’ll love the people and you’ll love the place. That’s why we love Bòtanic and that’s why it’s in our Barcelona Gay Escape.

Final Summary

Botànic Bar Cafè is a great place for a quiet drink with mates (in the back garden) or a loud drink with strangers (inside). Central to all the action and does food too!
