The Alchemist Manchester - MediaCityUK


At MediaCityUK, enjoy creative cocktails and food on the beautiful outdoor terrace at The Alchemist. Or step inside this copper-cased wonderland to experience what the brand is known for. Work your way through the infamous cocktail menu, which will take you on a taste journey, as well as 'wow' and entertain. Try the favourite Screwball a nostalgic hit of raspberry vodka and bubblegum, finished with white chocolate cream foam. Or try the show-stopping Cherry Poppins a raspberry gin-based libation topped with a cherry fog bubble, that you can pop to release the flavour. 

Not only known for cocktails, The Alchemist serves a delicious all-day menu, providing an Alchemist twist on classic dishes. From small plates to mighty mains, the menu features vegan-friendly dishes, such as the Cauliflower Katsu Curry, a popular choice.

So, pop in before your show at The Lowry Theatre, for brunch on the weekend, or head down later in the evening when the venue comes alive. Either way, expect a huge amount of theatre & outstanding service.

If weekend brunching is more your scene, enjoy The Alchemist's delicious brunch package, Alchemy Cocktail Brunch, available every weekend from 10 am. For £30, enjoy x3 cocktails and any brunch dish! Why not make drinks bottomless for £10 extra?

The venue is also becoming a great place for late-night visits. Book a late-night drinks table from 10 pm Thursday - Saturday and you'll have the option to pre-order devilish drinks packages. This late-night drinks table will be primed and ready to go, eliminating any hassle on the night. Couple this with great music and it's the best place in MediaCity to end up.
