Colour Changing One - The Alchemist - Apr 12 2022 - 5395

The Alchemist has continued its expansion plans with a £1.5m investment in a second bar and restaurant in Edinburgh.

Set in a prime location on George Street, the site will be The Alchemist’s third in Scotland following its debut as part of the St. James Quarter development at the end of last year, alongside recently revealed plans to open in Glasgow’s George Square this winter.

The venue will open in early 2023 bringing 60 new jobs to the capital city.

Demonstrating The Alchemist’s ‘theatre served’ and molecular mixology, the 7,051sq ft space will house 185 covers for creative cocktails and all-day casual dining.

Jenny McPhee, brand director, said: “The response to our first bar and restaurant in Edinburgh last year, alongside plans to make our debut in Glasgow later this year, has been incredible and we’re thrilled to be further expanding our portfolio in Scotland with a second venue in the capital.

“With a mix of listed features and our signature style, the site is going to be stunning, offering an unrivalled and unconventional drinking and dining experience in the heart of the city.”
