Welcome to The Alchemist, Spinningfields

The Alchemist in Spinningfields was the birthplace of the original Alchemist and is one of three Manchester venues. Boasting floor to ceiling windows and a year-round outdoor terrace that’s perfect for al-fresco dining.

Step inside their den of molecular mixology, where theatre is guaranteed as unexpected cocktail creations are fashioned right before your eyes. Names such as Bubblebath and Smokey Old Fashioned reflect the content (and sometimes fleeting special effects) of those chemistry lab beakers and flasks stacked behind the bar.

Savour the mouth-watering menu with delectable all-day dining in their copper-cased wonderland. From small plates to mighty mains, all tastes are catered for and the menu features vegan friendly dishes, such as the Cauliflower Katsu Curry. If you’re after a theatrical dining experience then they suggest ordering the Chorizo and Cheddar Dough Balls (cheese level – your choice) to start, and definitely the very boozy and flamed at the table, Cotton Candy Based Alaska for dessert – stand back for this one.

Arrive early doors and check out the seasonal Boundless Brunch set menu, which, for a fixed price, gets you three inspired cocktails and a pairing dish from the likes of a veggie benedict to The Full Alchemist, complete with Bury black pudding and buttered sourdough toast.

From late night bar reservations, mobile bar services and corporate events, get in touch and reserve your own piece of alchemy.
