The Alchemist Spinningfields

A bar devised in Manchester

In the 19th century, Spinningfields was described as a “den of iniquity, teeming with opium dens, gin palaces and alehouses”. An apt birthplace for the original Alchemist.

Our enthralling cocktail bar and restaurant brings this bustling social hub into the 21st century with floor to ceiling windows overlooking our year-round outdoor terrace, perfect for al-fresco dining. Walls are adorned with dark Dan Hillier artworks setting the perfect mood for our master mixologists to push the boundaries of the Manchester drinking experience.

As a hive of activity since the industrial revolution, we invite all of Manchester’s worker bees to join us in our very own den of iniquity for a dazzling range of drinks and sumptuous selection of food.


Our Manchester mixologists 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.
