Botanica Bar review image

Botanica Bar

Botanica is a dive in Soho, and it’s the kind of place where you bring a group of friends or coworkers when all you want to do is drink something cheap in a room that gets very little natural light. There’s a great Happy Hour until 8pm daily with $5 wine and well drinks - and seeing as how everyone seems to know this, it can be hard to find a seat here.
