Venue Overview

MediaCity UK stands tall and proud alongside the historic Manchester Ship Canal, the ever-flowing artery that's carried the lifeblood of the city since it was right at the heart of the Industrial Revolution.

Nowadays though, where once it brought the produce of Lancashire’s dark satanic mills to the world, it’s undergone a dramatic rebirth, becoming a vibrant creative centre that’s home to the world famous Lowry Centre and both BBC and ITV studios. What better place then for The Alchemist to work its magic?

On this occasion, we really have turned our base into gold. Transforming the bund’s revolutionary hybrid landscape by creating a unique and futuristic venue featuring a spectacular golden roof and walls and a stunning terrace that cantilevers out over the canal. Those who’ve already seen it say it’s like a gigantic golden spacecraft that’s landed in Salford Quays, bringing the future with it. We say it’s like nothing else on earth.

Everyone’s welcome at The Alchemist, MediaCity UK. So come join us, communicate with a cocktail or two, delve into our darkly delicious menu and immerse yourself in what’s possibly the most buzzing place in Manchester, hive of industry and entertainment, spiritual home of The Alchemist.

At MediaCity, our selection of exquisite cocktails and food are best enjoyed in the glorious sun and warm summer nights on our beautiful outdoor terrace. Book today for our theatre-served experience.


As Foodinate's first national restaurant partner, The Alchemist has taken our fight against local food poverty to deprived communities across the nation. You can now head to ANY of The Alchemist venues and enjoy either the Duck Gyoza or the Chickpea Curry knowing that a hot, nourishing meal will be provided for a person in need in the exact same community as a result - at no extra cost to you! All in the power of choice...

Simon Potts, Managing Director of The Alchemist, said of the new partnership: "We love the work Foodinate do. We're the first national restaurant brand to partner with the cause and we're immensely proud to work alongside such a fantastic charitable organisation. It also allows our customers to be a part of the initiative and we look forward to seeing the difference we can together make to our local communities."
