If looking at plants whilst you have a cheeky cocktail for brunch is your kind of day out, then the Botanist is for you. Although slightly expensive, the Botanist is presented to make you feel like the main character. Their cocktails are worth the price, with a large selection to choose from. Enjoy lunch with a delicious menu that can be either meat, vegetarian or vegan! They operate on a smart casual dress code. Staff are required to disinfect surfaces between visits so you can rest assured that you will be safe during your stay. Don’t forget to wear your mask!

Similarly to the Botanist, this cocktail bar will leave you feeling pristine and proper after trying their cocktails. A little on the expensive side, it is worth it with the range of cocktails and wines they have. Either book yourself a balcony seat or a booth and enjoy catered and tasteful cocktails with a meal of your choice. Proof of your booking reservation will need to be shown before you are guided to your seat, and you can enjoy a stay of up to two hours. Their food portions can be quite filling, so bear that in mind when you order! With gorgeous interiors and wonderful customer service, you’d be wanting to come back to the Cosy Club frequently.

3. Passion for Cocktails

The answer is in the name, Passion for Cocktails gives customers the most passionate selection of cocktails possible. This cocktail bar prides themselves on anything cocktail related with an extensive list that you can find on their website. Though a small business, it is enjoyed by many Coventry locals as their knowledge and variation of cocktails span further than any of the other cocktail bars out there. They also have a blog discussing the various cocktails they have created and what they would recommend. Remember to request your booking before arrival and check out the menu to see the wonderful selection they have. You might want to try something new!
