The Alchemist London - Old Street


The Alchemists are no strangers to the bold and unique, with unparalleled attention to the molecular, their mixologists carefully craft each 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. 

The dark and unconventional brand has six London locations; Vicotria, Bevis Marks in the city, St. Martin's Lane in 'theatreland', Old Street in the creative Shoreditch hub, Embassy Gardens at Nine Elms and its flagship haunt in Canary Wharf.

Old Street is home to a host of creatives making it the perfect fit for The Alchemist’s distinct dash of flavour. They've conjured their madness to bring you the ideal cocktail venue to blend with like-minds and spark alternative ideas in the darkly delicious ambience with a unique signature. If you're looking to add some theatre to your evening we recommend The Colour Changing One, as the name suggests, this cocktail transforms before your very eyes. 

Feeling hungry? Enjoy an all-day dining menu with classic dishes receiving an Alchemist twist. For breakfast, indulge in a packed Breakfast Burrito, for lunch a delicious French-Dip Steak Sandwich, and for dinner, we recommend the brand's best-seller since 2010, the 'Chicken in a Basket'. 

(Dogs are also welcome with open paws).

Looking for weekend plans? Start your weekend right with their Alchemy Cocktail Brunch. Enjoy 3 cocktails and any brunch dish for £35. A great way to sample the delights of this creatively weird venue, plus great value. Make drinks bottomless for £10 extra.

Or if you're a late-night reveller, the venue offers drinks table reservations past 10pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Through their online booking process, pre-order your drinks ahead of time so they will be nice and chilled for when you arrive.

Alchemist Old Street has become a late-night destination for the Shoreditch late-night partiers.
