The Alchemist Manchester - Spinningfields


The Alchemist Spinningfields, located on Hardman Street in Manchester, was the birthplace of the original Alchemist, and also one of the first bars to open in the area back in 2010. Now a vibrant part of the city, it's an area that offers a great mix of food and drink from early mornings 'til late.

The Alchemist's all-day dining experiencing makes it the perfect choice for all occasions, from that morning businesses meeting, brunch with friends or date night; it then transforms in the evening into a bustling, must be seen, social hub for a unique and memorable evening. The Alchemist's world of theatre served promises super creative cocktails and devilish dishes that will bedazzle all, anytime.

When visiting this loved destination they recommend ordering the sharing Mad Hatters cocktail, it's the perfect instagramable creation that will turn heads! You could even try the gin and fairy liquid based Bubblebath cocktail, it's a beautiful one to drink and watch come to life. If you're after a theatrical dining experience then they suggest ordering the chorizo and cheddar dough balls (cheese level - your choice) to start, and definitely the very boozy and flamed at the table, Cotton Candy Based Alaska for dessert - stand back for this one. 

Weekend brunching more your thing? Enjoy the Alchemist's boundless brunch, Saviours of Summer every weekend, 10am - 2pm.

In total, The Alchemist have three venues based within Greater Manchester, there's a second within Manchester itself on New York Street, and a third a bit further out in MediaCity UK. The Spinningfields venue boasts floor to ceiling windows that overlooks a year-round outdoor terrace that's perfect for al-fresco dining, plus walls adorned with dark artworks.

The Alchemist's mixologists continuously push the boundaries of the Manchester drinking scene, making it the place to go for the newest and latest cocktail creations.
