The Alchemist has chosen Chester City centre as the site for its tenth opening since its inception six years ago.

Having acquired a 21-year leasehold from Odysian Ltd, The Alchemist Chester will be found in the former Gin Rickey’s and Luke’s Eating House.

‘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,’ said managing director Simon Potts. ‘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.

‘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.’
