Village Voice's Description

You want someplace cool but not forbidding, neither empty nor too crowded. Then you remember the old standby: Botanica. After a movie at the Angelika, you walk over to the subterranean saloon, a cavernous, low-key space that won't intimidate the doctor your misguided friends set you up with. Luckily, you don't have to make a doctor's salary to cover the tab here, and the comfy armchairs and love seats encourage intimacy; you get extra miles from your cleavage/booty (delete as appropriate) when you bend over to reach the low coffee table. When the doctor turns out to be not so bad after all, you suggest moving to the quiet back room (semi-deserted for canoodling). Who knew discussing gastroenterology could be so arousing?

Sunday Soiree, a weekly show with comics from Comedy Central and Sirius in Botanicaas back room. Sun 7pm.

    The closest thing we have to a local. Be sure to try the Dark AndStormy, but if you're feeling adventurous, ask about the Pickle Back.

    I came here right after returning from SXSW. During happy hour, you can get a Sierra Nevada for $3.50. I noticed this and exclaimed, "These are Texas prices!"

    Drink as many Dark & Stormies as you can handle. Say "Hi" to one of us, we're probably around there somewhere.
