Kuits advises New World Trading Company on The Botanist opening

07 Aug 2014

Manchester law firm Kuits Solicitors has advised New World Trading Company on the opening of their newest offering, The Botanist, in Manchester city centre.

The Botanist opened its doors to the public on Monday and will host a VIP launch party tonight at its home in the unit formerly occupied by Label on Deansgate.

Kuits advised NWTC, which is backed by Living Ventures owners Tim Bacon and Jeremy Roberts, on the premises licence for the bar and restaurant venue.

The Botanist concept, which combines an impressive drinks menu of over 40 bottled beers and ciders, cask-conditioned ales and cocktails with a deli-style food offering, rotisserie and barbecue, has already proven successful in the North West, with established premises in Alderley Edge and Chester.

NWTC also opened a Yorkshire-based premises on Leeds’ trendy Boar Lane in April last year.

This newest offering is, in fact, a return to the beginning for owner Tim Bacon, who launched his first Manchester bar, JW Johnson’s, in the very same unit over twenty years ago.

Anthony Lyons, head of Kuits’ licensing team, commented:

“The Botanist promises to be the next in a long line of successes for New World Trading Company and Living Ventures, and we are delighted to be joining them at the official launch party later this evening.”

NWTC is also the force behind Spinningfields favourite The Oast House, while Living Ventures currently manages over 15 other bars and restaurants across the UK – six in Manchester city centre alone.
