The multi award-winning Alchemist Bar & Restaurant is located in one of the most iconic buildings in Nottingham, dating from Victorian times.
Several years ago the building was occupied by the Hard Rock Café chain. Prior to that the Prudential Assurance Company occupied it. Today, the reputation of the Alchemist Cocktail Bar needs little introduction. The bar staff transform beverages, utilising bubbles, flames and smokiness, amazingly. Head Chef, Brody, is passionate about cuisine and makes certain, with his brigade, that all dishes are very memorable.
To commence the dining occasion I opted for Crispy Curried Fish (Seasonal fish, coconut curry sauce, herb oil, snap peas, samphire, crispy noodles, jasmine rice). Splendid – tasty, succulent and with complementing flavours. Compliments to Chef. Other popular dishes include Rib-Eye Steak, Surf ‘n Turf, Alchemist Fried Chicken Wrap and ‘The Full Alchemist’. Desserts have many temptations too, including Yakitori Caramelised Pineapple, Chocolate creations and several others. I selected Cotton Candy Baked Alaska (Waffle, blood orange gelato, meringue, Grand Marnier). Great photo opportunity. Watch for flames. Sensational!
I chose 3.5oz of Happiness for my cocktail delectation. With Cambridge Dry Gin, Chambord and other additions, this comes in a hipflask to keep – Exceptional! Parties and occasions are regularly accommodated. Booking is advisable, particularly for popular times. Please view the website for other Alchemist locations. Thank you to Mollie, for her genuine welcome and Hana, for excellent service throughout. Collections and gift vouchers are available – now, there’s a thought! Highly recommended.
As always, enjoy! Trevor Langley
