Securing one of the best rooftop spots in Newcastle, The Botanist invited us for a sneak preview of their new Winter Wonderland roof terrace earlier this month…
Think mugs of spiced cider and warm mulled wine, cosy log cabins and twinkly fairy lights under a blanket of stars. Thoughtfully furnished with patio heaters that keep you warm and toasty (tried and tested by us personally!) suddenly you needn’t worry about not being able to find a seat at the bar indoors, you can head upstairs and enjoy a view like no other surrounded by your nearest and dearest.
The outdoors bar is bedecked in baubles, making it feel extra festive, while mini Christmas trees adorn the picnic benches and cubby hole seating areas around the terrace which is a lovely touch.
It feels like another world up here, away from the busy streets and Christmas shoppers – perfect if you’re in need of a large glass of prosecco after a long day!
We heartily approve… *helps self to another mince pie*
