The scene? It couldn't be any better; against a rumbling thunderous sky, with heavy downpours and flashes of lighting striking across the sky, we made a very soggy entry into the newest outpost of The Alchemist in Old Street.

The Alchemist are, unsurprisingly, one of the best when it comes to attention to detail with their molecular mixology and in the kitchen. Their mixologists create every cocktail with an obsessive eye for detail, presented in vessels orchestrated to add a devilish dash of theatre, they bedazzle, bewitch and set the scene for everything they do.
If you're looking for some theatre, we recommend 'The Colour Changing One', as the cocktail transforms before your very eyes. Or try 'Bath Bomb' and dissolve a punchy dark fruits flavour into this gin & citrus based cocktail.
The dark and unconventional brand has five London locations; Bevis Marks in the city, St. Martin's Lane in 'theatreland', Old Street in the creative Shoreditch hub, Embassy Gardens at Nine Elms and it's flagship haunt in Canary Wharf. Enjoy an all day dining menu with classic dishes receiving an Alchemist twist. For breakfast, indulge in a packed burrito, for lunch a delicious Bombay Bun, and for dinner we recommend the brand's best seller since 2010, the 'Chicken in a Basket'.
Old Street is home to a host of creatives making it the perfect fit for The Alchemist’s own distinct dash of flavour. They've conjured their molecular madness to bring you the ideal cocktail venue to blend with like-minds and spark alternative ideas in the darkly delicious ambience that’s their own unique signature.
Enjoy a buzzing atmosphere, creative cocktails and devilishly delicious all-day dining that’s become the Alchemist trademark – Theatre Served.
