The Alchemist Manchester - New York Street


The Alchemist New York Street is situated in the heart of Manchester, and neighbours many unique attractions, amazing shopping centres and trendy offices; making it the go-to destination for some cocktail therapy. At The Alchemist they’re all about celebrating the molecular mad, and each cocktail holds its own theatre in a glass, bedazzling and bewitching all. For a true theatrical cocktail they recommend trying the Legal One, it smokes and is served in a bong. Or try guest favourite the Colour Changing One, it’s been around for years and does exactly what it says! 

The Alchemist New York Street is also the perfect location for all foodies. They offer an all-day dining menu with a unique theatrical experience that makes dining more exciting, whether visiting for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Their classic dishes promise a twist and are inspired by worldwide cuisines. They recommend ordering devilish tiered sharers to start; try the sharing platter which includes Vegetable Gyozas, Tempura Prawns & Bao Buns, Crispy Buttermilk Chicken and more, or add in some theatre with Chorizo & Cheddar Dough Balls - cheese level, your choice!

Home to a large bar area, outside terrace and bedecked in dark artworks to stir the sense, The Alchemist's world of theatre served promises a buzzing atmosphere that goes on ‘til late. The Alchemist New York Street is an exciting location that celebrates the unconventional, boasts demons in the kitchen and is home to some of Manchester’s most elaborate and ever changing cocktails.

Plus, the venue boasts those late-night drinks table reservations with their 'after dark' offering. Book online and bag your beverages ahead of time, eliminating any hassle on the night. With its central location near Piccadilly Gardens, it's the perfect choice of a place to end up.
