People are sitting at tables inside a modern, light and chic bar. Hanging drop lights add a glow.

About

At the Alchemist they're masters in the dark arts of molecular mixology and demons in the kitchen. Their mixologists create every cocktail with an obsessive eye for detail, presented in vessels orchestrated to add a devilish dash of theatre, they dazzle, bewitch and set the scene for everything they do. 

Back in 1907 Walter Dixon Scott wrote of Liverpool, "this strange territory seems, indeed, to form a kind of fifth element, a place charged with daemonic issues and daemonic silences". A fitting location therefore, for an Alchemist. They've firmly set up shop in a beautiful Grade II listed building on Brunswick Street in the heart of the commercial district. Exposed ancient brickwork, reinstated wonderful wooden floors and a touch of their own alchemy with a stunning commissioned mural, setting the tone for a decidedly unconventional bar and restaurant.

      Awful experience due to the most aggressive bar tender who has an attitude problem and a bitter scorn for customers.
