The Alchemist announces £1.5m investment in Edinburgh


The Alchemist is investing a further £1.5m in Edinburgh with the announcement that it is set to open a new bar and restaurant in 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 new 7,051 sq ft, 185 cover venue will open in early 2023 bringing 60 new jobs to the capital.

Encapsulating The Alchemist’s ‘mystical apothecary of theatre served and molecular mixology’ it will offer all-day casual dining along with its creative cocktails.

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.”
