Cafe Ibiza to bring a taste of Balearics as Botany Bar sold


The Botany Bar & Restaurant on Maryhill Road is set to re-open as Cafe Ibiza under the ownership of Jack Quick after he bought the business from Crawford Brechin. The new Spanish themed cafe is expected to undergo a refurbishment before launching next month.

The venue was originally opened by Alan Tomkins and his nephew Calum Lawson in 2015 as The Strathmore, before becomingThe Botany Bar in 2018. In 2020, it was bought by Crawford Brechin – and it was Smith & Clough that handled the sale. They were on point this time too.

Announcing the news, Smith and Clough said that had been delighted to act for Crawford again, and “after receiving strong levels of interest, the business has been sold to Jack Quirk. We understand the business will be closing next week for a refurbishment before launching as Cafe Ibiza on 11th May.”
