Fun, interactive and interesting…

You’ve heard of “make your own pizza”, so why not make your own cocktail? Join us for this fun, interactive experience, which takes place on a rooftop with panoramic views of the city of Colombo.

Once you arrive at Botanik, a chic rooftop Bistro and Bar, you will meet your host, who will join you in sampling some homemade chips and dips, whilst sipping on a refreshing arrack tamarind cocktail. Enjoy the steady flow of conversation, and learn about the history and culture of the vibrant city of Colombo from a local. This will be followed by the highlight of the evening, where you take over your own cocktail station and start mixing your unique cocktail, carefully guided by Botanik’s bartenders. Name your masterpiece and enjoy it under Colombo’s starry night sky!

This activity is for the whole family as we can get your kids to make their own Mocktail.
