Botanica is meant to be a place where visual and experiential art meet. We dreamt up this concept with the aim of bringing a new creative and experiential gathering space to North Park. Through food, amazing cocktails and unique art events, we want to connect our community! Our spirits of choice are botanical and artisanal spirits sourced from all over the world with a strong focus on Genever & Gins. Our food focuses on the art of pintxos with innovative bar bites that evolve with the seasons. Our art gallery features local artists commissioned pieces as well as unique NFTs.
Featured Artist of the Month: Gloria Muriel
Gloria Muriel (Glow) is a fine artist and muralist. She is a Mexico City native, raised in Mexicali and resides in San Diego. Gloria celebrates the inspiration of divine feminine in her artwork with a surreal whimsical psychedelic connection to Mother Earth and the 4 elements. She is influenced by her inner child and being a mother of two girls, one blessed within the autism spectrum, she highlights the beauty of innocence and wonder. Over the years, Gloria has accomplished numerous murals and collaborations throughout the US and Mexico. Much of her work is spread throughout San Diego, partnering with nonprofits, city departments, corporations and private commissions.
Gloria’s mural can be seen on the walls outside of Botanica and her NFT art in our digital gallery. Check out our digital NFT gallery here!
