The Alchemist St John Street

Welcome to our amphitheatre

Founded as a roman fortress and rich in all the mystery and mythology that goes with it, Chester just had to be the perfect location for our own very special brand of molecular mixology and devilishly delicious menus. In fact, we couldn’t think of a better place for our tenth venue than right here.

Prepare to be bedazzled by The Alchemist’s cocktail bar and restaurant in Chester. Right where the mighty roman centurions once trained for battle and the less fortunate are rumoured to have reluctantly taken their chances with some rather peckish lions. But don’t worry, we rarely carry on with those traditions. We’re cocktail lovers, not fighters.

So, join us in our very own amphitheatre of style for a range of food and drink fit to impress any crowd.


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

Watch the molecular magic unfold before your very eyes.

Your chef has come equally prepared to bedazzle & bewitch with our famous molecular mixology, but to your table as glorious food inspired by worldwide cuisines.

Enjoy classic dishes with an Alchemist twist.

Why not try our Balearic Bottomless Brunch in St.John Street, Chester. Join us every weekend 10am-2pm, as we praise the rays and embrace the turn of the summer solstice.
