The Alchemist MediaCity UK

Food and drink, from the future

MediaCityUK stands tall and proud alongside the historic Manchester ship canal, the ever-flowing artery that’s carried the lifeblood of the city since it was right at the heart of the industrial revolution. Nowadays though, where once it brought the produce of Lancashire’s dark satanic mills to the world, it’s undergone a dramatic rebirth, becoming a vibrant creative centre that’s home to the world famous Lowry centre and both BBC and ITV studios. What better place then for the alchemist to work its magic?

We really have turned our base into gold. Transforming the bund’s revolutionary hybrid landscape by creating a unique and futuristic cocktail bar and restaurant featuring a spectacular golden roof and walls and stunning outdoor seating that cantilevers out over the canal. Those who’ve already seen it say it’s like a gigantic golden spacecraft that’s landed in Salford Quays, bringing the future with it. We say it’s like nothing else on earth.


Our bartenders create every cocktail with an obsessive eye for detail, orchestrated to add a devilish dash of theatre.

Watch the molecular magic unfold before your very eyes.

At MediaCityUK, our selection of exquisite cocktails and food are best enjoyed in the glorious sun and warm summer nights on our beautiful outdoor terrace. Book today for our Theatre Served experience.
