Exclusive FOR Cardiff Members Event at The Botanist

On Friday 7th February, FOR Cardiff held its first event for members with The Card with an exclusive preview of The Botanist Cardiff.

The Card is a benefit for employees of FOR Cardiff member businesses providing offers, discounts and member only events.

The Card holders were one of the first people to experience The Botanist Cardiff before they opened their doors to the public.

150 members enjoyed a complimentary meal inspired by the deli, BBQ and rotisserie and a free cocktail created by expert mixologists.

The highly anticipated restaurant compliments Cardiff’s growing entertainment offering with two cocktail bars, a large garden terrace and daily live music. The Botanist is inspired by the wondrous world of botanicals and is designed to resemble a topical garden.

We interviewed members at the event and asked them how The Card benefits their business. The video will be released in the next few days and will be published on the FOR Cardiff YouTube channel.

The event follows the successful launch of The Card to FOR Cardiff member businesses. Since the launch in September 2019, 40,000 cards have been issued to member business and over 100 businesses have added offers to The Card.

FOR Cardiff aim to expand The Card with a programme of member only events that will run throughout the year.

Tickets for The Botanist preview event sold out within a couple of days with over 500 people registering their interest in The Card event.
