The Botanist ready for Sunderland opening
New World Trading Company has confirmed that it will be opening The Botanist in Sunderland.
New World Trading Company has confirmed that it will be opening The Botanist in a unit beneath Sunderland’s new Holiday Inn.
Taking shape on Keel Square, the new site is one of four retail and leisure spaces at street-level beneath the soon-to-be-completed hotel.
New World Trading Company, which has 34 venues across the UK, has said the move to Sunderland was one it was sure would be a big success.
“Our Botanist brand is so well-loved by our guests, so it’s always exciting for us to bring our concept-venue to new cities and towns," says Natasha Waterfield, chief operating officer at New World Trading Company.
“Sunderland is a transforming place, thanks to unparalleled investment in the city centre and the vision of the local authority, and we’re excited by the opportunity to bring our immersive offer to the area. We can’t wait to open later this year.”
The bar is part of the new £18m 120-bed Holiday Inn Hotel at Keel Square, which is close to completion. An opening date is yet to be confirmed.
