There is a part-time bartender at this bar who abuses customers to whom he feels inferior. All I did was ask for a drink from a bartender, (considering that is his job) but my request was met not only with impatience and attitude, but with

This bar is one of the only bars in the area that I can stand. The music is excellent. The bartenders are cool. The drinks are cheeeeeeeeap. Happy hour is the best around. I don't need this getting ruined by a bunch of yuppie a$$holes, frat boys, and general gangsta types. Stay out if you fit any of the above catagories, if not come by and have a drink at the best bar around.

Pros: happy hour, hot hipster chicks, and cool bartenders

Cons: Starting to see more and more blue blazers and khakis.

I have never posted on citysearch, but looking at the small number of reviews for Botanica I thought that I should tell you about this little gem. Botanica is one of those bars that feels like home. The bouncers are friendly. The dj plays what you want and the bartenders are very liberal with the drinks that they make. No matter who I come with to Botanica, it never disappoints. I recommend this bar to anyone who is looking for good times with good people.

Pros: cheap strong drinks, good music, open late, friendly staff

Been going here for years. Nice people, fun music and a great place to meet friends after work. Keep it a secret.

Sartre said hell is other people. He must not have visited this bar. THIS is hell. Bad music at ear-splitting volume. A crowd of college students slightly less friendly than Al-Qaeida at a Bar Mitzvah, and slightly less cliquey than the Bush family circle. An off-bar couch-filled alcove could be comfortable.All they'd have to do is keep the volume up for the boneheads in front, and down for the drinkers/talkers/shmoozers/lovers in the back. But they spoiled it! If anything, the back room is LOUDER than the front. There's just no getting away from it. Thinking of coming here? Have a prostate exam instead. It'll be more fun. --Drink Club is a roving group of Manhattan drinkers

Pros: Close to other bars

Cons: unfriendly crowd, WAY too loud, no table service

Haven't been here for a couple of years and discovered it's gone through a management change ... and boy it needed it!! New bosses seem to have kept the things that made the place great, while getting rid of the bad elements. It's a lot cleaner and the crowd's got younger but Happy Hour is one of the best around (and they do late night Happy Hour from 1 till 4). Great for a quick drink or for spending the whole night listening to the fantastic D.J.'s. Hot bartenders too!!!!!

Pros: Cheap, Fun, Unpretentious

I discovered Botanica several years ago, and have found it to be consistently one of the best bars around. The drinks are reasonably priced, music is great, and most importantly, the crowd is contains zero princess attittude.

I would avoid on weekends.. it can get too crowded and the hipsters can take over. But after four years, its still the perfect place to have drinks and a chat with good friends.

Like that golden-dive walk down that you stumble upon at 3am on a saturday, botanica will spring from the nyc earth; your first time there is a vertiable dive-deflowering. After that: this place continues to be consistently amazing whether u use it to start your night or to chill there for hours. Great value! Great crowd! great background noise. Beware, however, of the occassional chad qua hipster.

Pros: great happy hour

I used to come here every week for happy hour on Thursdays. They let us playcard games and order pizza. If you want cheap beer and a chill dive bar, this is the place.

Straddling Soho and the L.E.S. it combines these two neighborhood vibes while gently feeding your liver. One of the only bars in NYC that serves Pabst in a can ($2!). The best happy hour-just for the mixed crowd. Avoidable weekend nights, Botanica is best during the week. You may find yourself starting and ending your evening there. Service gets better the more you frequent it.

Pros: dark, sofas, good music

Cons: hit-or-miss service

The service isn't that bad -- one of the bartenders is flaky to the point of distraction, but aside from that...a nice spot

I would never plan to go here for an evening. But, if you're in the area, it's a good place to stop for a cheap drink. The decor is seriously lacking, but they often do have a good DJ.
