The Alchemist is a mystical apothecary, dispensing the most creative cocktails and delicious all-day dining with a twist. Their mixologists create every cocktail with an obsessive eye for detail and present them in vessels orchestrated to add a devilish dash of theatre that bedazzles and bewitches at every turn. The cocktails deliver pure wow moments, with the menu categorised by theatre. Try ‘Cherry Poppins’ which is a glorious combination of raspberry gin, citrus & strawberry, topped with a cherry fog bubble you pop to release its flavour. Or why not share ‘The Mad Hatters’ a brand favourite, which truly showcases the wacky, showstopping madness The Alchemist is known for. A concoction of vodka, citrus, Cointreau and fruits – smoking beyond belief with a fragrance that fills the venue. With an all-day dining menu, inspired by worldwide cuisines, there's something for everyone. Food takes centre stage at The Alchemist with an exciting and theatrical flair. The venue also has a wide range of vegetarian and vegan options to choose from. Experience a unique atmosphere, expertly crafted cocktails and delicious dining that’s become the Alchemist trademark – Theatre Served.
