Living Ventures’ premium bar and casual dining brand, The Alchemist has acquired its tenth site in Chester City centre, continuing its great start to the year, which has seen it open in Newcastle and be named in The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work for 2017.

Having acquired a 21 year leasehold from Odysian Ltd, The Alchemist Chester will be situated in the Former Gin Rickey’s and Luke’s Eating House, and shifts the premium bar and casual dining brand into its next phase of growth.

Simon Potts, managing director of The Alchemist, said, “We’re incredibly proud to be opening our tenth site, just six years after the brand’s inception.

‘When we launched in Spinningfields back in 2010, we looked to push the boundaries of the Manchester drinking and casual dining experience through theatrical cocktails, engaging service and interesting spaces.

‘We’re now establishing ourselves as one of the most talked about bar and restaurant brands in the UK, and we are delighted to open in Chester and intend to bring something different to its food and drink scene.’

Potts concluded, “Opening our tenth site, in a city rich in heritage with a bustling nightlife, demonstrates the dedication and commitment of The Alchemist team. 2017 is set to be our most exciting year yet, as consumer demand increases for richer, immersive and shareable bar and restaurant experiences.”
