Manchester-born group, The Alchemist, which was established in 2010, is returning to its roots with an extensive refurbishment of its original venue, The Alchemist Spinningfields.
The transformation will unveil the next phase and a new era for the brand, says The Alchemist, with new-look interiors and menus.
The Alchemist Spinningfields, the renowned group’s first and flagship venue – and one of Spinningfields’ original bar openings in 2010, helping institute the area as a cosmopolitan social hub of bars and restaurants – will be re-opening in March following a £550,000 fit out.
The refined refurbishment will be a significant evolution in design for The Alchemist, say owners, having journeyed through creative alchemy and potions with its molecular mixology style.
The Alchemist Spinningfields will be the first destination to reveal “the original alchemists’ new style, featuring futuristic, divine influences from astrology and the cosmos”.
The cosmic inspired renovation of the all-day dining and cocktail space will include the addition of two new private areas that will be perfect for late night cocktails.
There will be a brand-new food menu revealed, as well as a new cocktail and drinks offering landing in May.
“The Alchemist footprint has spread across the UK over the last few years, as we’ve taken our hospitality brand down to London and up to Scotland, but we’ve always remained a Manchester company, at heart,” said Simon Potts, CEO.
“The Spinningfields venue is an institution and much loved by our teams and guests alike; we look forward to bringing our new design direction to the city in March.
“The refurbishment also marks a new phase of growth for the business as we put the recent challenges behind us and look forward to the renewed evolution and expansion of the brand.”
