The Alchemist - Spinningfields


The original Alchemist has now well and truly made its mark as one of the cool, sophisticated bars in Manchester. Based in the heart of Spinningfields, expect daytime shoppers and plenty of local office workers still suited and booted, stopping by for a drink after work, nice.

The venue itself is a beauty with high ceilings, a huge antique bar and a large back bar filled with a selection of top class spirits and liqueurs. If you’re splashing the cash buy a bottle of your choice and have it locked in a private cupboard high up which can be retrieved on your next visit, because you’ll definitely be back for more. There’s also an outdoor seating area with table booths and big umbrellas, well equipped for the Manchester weather.

Pull up a stool at the bar, get close to one of the fit barmen and check out the cocktail list because this is a show not to be missed. BarChick went for the Mad Hatters Tea Party, where Green Mark Russian Vodka, elderflower liqueur, Cointreau and citron gomme are evaporated through fresh fruit before being poured over dry ice into a smoking tea cup, tastes as amazing as it looks!

There’s an awesome tapatizer food menu available at the bar including chicken wings, baby calamari and duck spring rolls, or grab a seat in the restaurant for something a little more substantial. At the weekend there’s a heavenly brunch menu, think eggs Florentine and a strong Bloody Mary, the dream!
