The Alchemist Edinburgh

Description

Step up into the Alchemist's first venue in Scotland. Located in Edinburgh on the fourth floor of St James Quarter, the capital's largest retail district.

Situated just a stone’s throw from Edinburgh Castle and the infamous Witches’ Well, what better destination for their dark world of theatre served?

Enter via a lobby featuring star sign projections before an immersive elevator experience to the fourth floor and enjoy spectacular cocktails and glorious food in the Alchemist's first venue in Scotland.

This huge 170-cover space serves their renowned scientific and unconventional cocktail menu. Try 'Cherry Poppins', a raspberry gin-based cocktail with a cherry fog bubble - pop to release its aroma. Or if you're into a more serious taste, try the  'Chocolate Orange Smasherac', a concoction of Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Martell Cognac, Cointreau, Chocolate - smash your own cosmic orange flavoured glass. Indulge in their all-day dining menu while surrounded by lavish black and gold interiors. From Katsu Curry to Steaks, and the mouth-watering Chocolate Cookie S'mores, this place has it all. There are great options for vegetarians and vegans too.

The venue is getting a great reputation for late night Thursday - Saturday. You can book drinks tables post 10pm under their 'After Dark' campaign online. Through the booking process you can pre-order drinks packages ahead of your arrival, removing any hassle on the night. This dark and unconventional bar is a great destination to end up. Plus the outdoor terrace boasts DJ sets in collaboration with Glenmorangie X whisky. Visit the venue webpage for more information.
