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. Floor to ceiling windows overlook 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 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."
